Helen wins firm's travel bursary
HELEN Rex from Somerset Care at Home in Taunton has won the company's domiciliary care travel bursary.  
The scheme has been set up along with Helping Hand Aged Care in Adelaide, and allows one member of staff from each company to exchange jobs. Helen will now do a job swap for three weeks in Australia. 
She said: 'I am extremely pleased to have won the 2008 domiciliary care travel bursary. I am very much looking forward to three weeks in Australia, and am keen to see how a similar company operates on the other side of the world.'

Valuables worth £10,000 among belongings
RESIDENTS considering the move into a new retirement village in Guiseley had over £10,000 of antiques in their belongings. BBC antiques valuer Gary Don made a guest appearance at The Laureates, in West Yorkshire, and looked through the belongings of 40 potential residents to give them appraisals on their possessions. 
Gill Bruton, head of new services at Anchor Trust, behind the Laureates development, said: 'A lot of people interested in our apartments are looking to downsize, which means they have a lot of items they no longer want or need. We thought we would give them a chance to find out just how much they are worth by giving them access to an antiques valuer at our launch event.'
