THREE generations of one family have shown their caring side by collectively clocking up 72 years with the South Central Ambulance Service.

Glyn Davies, 84, his 55-year-old son Gary and granddaughter Megan, 22, all live in Bletchley and have all enjoyed their respective careers in the service, despite Glyn retiring in 1990 after 35 years.

Speaking about his experiences, Glyn said: “Only one incident in my career really worried me. I’d gone home for lunch, parked the ambulance outside my bungalow and gone inside to put the kettle on. Glancing back at the window, I noticed the vehicle was gone.

“I dashed outside to find it had come to rest against the kerb across the road. I always checked the handbrake was properly applied after that.”

South Central Ambulance Service is working towards becoming a Foundation Trust and is looking to recruit 4,500 members. For more details email getinvolved@scas.nhs.uk.
