May was a busy and buzzing month for never@home with many refurbishments and exciting changes taking place at the hostel and as a result the hostel looks vibrant, new and sparkly. It also saw the first batch of iXperience students move and settle into their never@home rooms.

Firstly we would like to thank everyone for their hard work over the last few weeks, we wouldn’t have been able to have the successful month we did with out you! But without further ado it is time for us to announce our crew member of the month (da da dah), ASA!!!!! Congratulations Asa for winning this worthy title for May 2016!

Asa is a loyal, hardworking member of the housekeeping team and is the longest standing employee at the property – having worked at both never@home and the Hotel Graeme for over seventeen years!

This month Asa took on the task of deep cleaning room curtains (in over 40 rooms we might add) and they look amazing! Asa has also gone above and beyond assisting with tasks outside her usual duties.

Thank you Asa – you rock!
