Retiring board Members 2021

At Country Home Services we are so fortunate to have some very talented and wise members on our Board. The three board members photographed below, with our current chairperson Margaret Zweck (far right,) are no exception. This past week, they retired from our board but we couldn't let them go without sharing that we are so appreciative of their time and their input over the years.
 
From the left in the photo below, we thank
- Geoff Spence, who had supported us as our deputy Chairperson and with us on our board for 13 years.
- Leith Jenkins, who has been inspiring us to attend more country shows in our community, had been with us for 7 years.
- And finally Margaret Manuel who had supported us on the board for 15 years, with 5 of those years as Chairperson.
 
We are grateful to have you all steer us in the right direction. Thank you and know that we wish you all the very best in your future endeavors.

We are thrilled to announce that our CEO, Ashley, has been selected as a member of the Inaugural Local Jobs and Skills Taskforce Mid North. We are proud and excited to develop and implement strategies that will benefit our community. Congratulations Ashley.

Strategic Plan Poster 3 small

 Today we launched our new Strategic Plan which is highlighted on our About Us Page or you can download it here.

 Our CEO Ashley Clarence also introduced the plan across our social media networks, including Facebook, so pop over and take a look and if you haven't already then like our page while you are there.

 A few highlights that Ashley mentions in his video are "The main theme of our plan is to maximise the benefits in our community. Not   just limited to home care services, but what is the most good we can do."

 "We are not about making profits for no reason, every extra dollar we make will be spent improving the lives of country people, by   addressing community challenges in the country."

 We are really excited about the future and direction of Country Home Services and we thank you all for your support.

 

Ashley and LeithOn the weekend Country Home Services attended the Tanunda Show for the first time, and despite the overcast weather and a bit of rain, it was a lovely day that gave us a chance to connect with our local community. In the photo to our left you can see two of our hardest workers on the day - Ashley our CEO and Leith, one of our board members and no stranger to country shows. Leith has been showing his pigeons at shows for most of his life and has been judging at country shows for just as long, so he was very much at home for the day and was a wonderful advocate for us in explaining to people how we can help them with our services.

 There were plenty of postive connections made on the day and even Ashley got into the show spirit and entered into the egg competition and even took out 2nd place. We love getting out and about and meeting you all so in the future we will be looking for more ways to connect with our country communities so watch this space.....
