Deanna (Dee) Stidiford and Amanda Farah who are both working in Post Care Support Services and are located at Salisbury and City/Marion respectively. Hopefully you will meet them at upcoming social activities and events. Welcome to the team! The end of year is fast approaching us and we will be holding a Christmas/end-of-year lunch at Elm Place in the city on Wednesday, 18 December so save the date! Did you know... Elm Place situated on the corner of Frome and Flinders Streets in the city was named after the avenues of Elm trees which have starting to bud ready for spring.
