Photo: ALASTAIR PAULIN Staff happy with revamp By ALASTAIR PAULIN Joan Lawrence loves her new kitchen. The new paint job makes it light and airy, she has a whole new pantry to fill with provisions and her new oven is twice the size of her last one and so sophisticated that she has yet to work out all the fancy things it can do. And the renovation only cost $75,000! But the makeover was not just for Joan. Joan is one of the cooks at Motueka s Jack Inglis Friendship Hospital and the refurbished kitchen means a better working environment for her and her three colleague who cook about 200 meals a day for the hospital s residents and the Meals on Wheels programme. Jack Inglis said the renovations were needed to be as efficient as possible with a likely growing need for services and to ensure the staff have a safe and enjoyable environ- ment to operate in. A wall was removed and the new equipment includes a new commercial oven, new dishwasher, upgraded refriger- ation units and new shelving. Jack said throughout the changes the kitchen staff were brilliant as there was quite a bit of upheaval for them. They managed to still prepare meals to the highest quality while the local tradesmen made noise and clutter all around them. Joan said: Somehow it has made it easier to work in. It s brighter and lighter with lots more shelving and much more space. Chas Senior said she wasn t going to miss the old paint job with its institutional pink walls. The kitchen staff make nearly all the food served in the hospital fresh from scratch, with Sunday s roast along with homemade desserts such as cheesecake, pavlova and lemon tart being a favourite for the patients. Although every effort was made to keep the cost to a minimum the refurbishment was an expensive exercise and Jack said the hospital trust would appreciate any dona- tions to help pay for the revamp. Donations can be made at Milnes and Associates in Wallace St, Motu- eka.
