Meet our Chef
"Hello my name is Carol Bletcher and I joined Asquith in January 2014. I first worked three days a week and job shared with Janice. I have settled into Asquith very well and everyone in the team has been so kind and helpful.
Previously I worked in a Daycare centre kitchen for seventeen years preparing and cooking meals for the elderly. I can honestly say I prefer my new position and seeing the children’s lovely smiling faces makes for a great start to my day. We have started up a Cookery class on a Saturday afternoon, which the children all seem to be enjoying and showing a keen interest. I believe there may be some budding Chef’s amongst them.
In my spare time when I am not working, I enjoy gardening and having the grandchildren over."
