Twice a year the Sunbeam Times is produced. It is a newspaper all about what’s going down in Sunbeam with the service-users and staff and much more besides. There’s a committee who work very hard to gather the information and assemble it all together in time to go to press.
This issue has a great frontpage. It is an interview with our new Managing Director, John Hannigan. Our intrepid reporter, Louisa, grilled him hard during the interview. Take a look at some of the questions below but for the full story find a copy of the Sunbeam Times now.
John Hannigan Interview by Louisa –
SO TELL US WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I am originally from Crumlin in Dublin. I lived there for almost 22 years then moved to Saggart in Co. Wicklow and then to Birmingham in England. I lived in Birmingham for nearly 14 years and returned to Ireland in 2003 and have lived in Dunboyne, Co. Meath since then.
WHY DID YOU APPLY TO WORK IN SHS?
I applied to work in Sunbeam House Services because of its excellent reputation, its staff and the clients that it provides services to. Sunbeam House Services is seen as one of the leading service providers in our sector and I wanted to be part of that and lead an excellent team of managers and staff. I am glad to say that I am very happy to have applied for the job and that I was selected. It has lived up to my expectations, I hope I can live up to its expectations.
WHAT UNIT DO YOU GO TO AT SHS?
I currently have an office in Cedar Estate in Bray and in The Village in Ballyraine. I try to spend at least two days a week in both and the other day in some other unit. This week I have been to Abbey Manor, Hall Lodge, the Training Centre in Bray, Dunavon, ATEC, Arklap, and I hope to finish the week in the our new unit in Bray Suiamhneas.
