A community barbecue was held to celebrate Hertfordshire’s care workforce.

The event was organised by Siouxsie Liddle, a care worker in St Albans, in support of vulnerable people.

Ms Liddle, who works at Grace Muriel House, put on the barbecue in support of Good Care Week, a celebration of Hertfordshire’s care workforce.

She said: “I really love my job. I love the fact that I make a difference to people’s lives and feel that I am making a valuable contribution.”

The county council hope Good Care Week, which runs from Friday, June 16, to Sunday, June 25, will encourage people to consider the profession.
