A tidy win for Estates Operative Steve

Estates Operative, Steven Bell wins a Bernicia Way staff award for doing a great job.

A valued member of the Estates Services team, Steven Bell has worked for Bernicia for eight years. He does a fantastic job keeping our homes and schemes in Wallsend, the east end of Newcastle and Hexham clean and tidy.

In his job as an Estates Operative, Steven is the public face of Bernicia every day, meeting tenants, helping out where they can and reporting bigger property issues back to the central Bernicia team or relevant local authority to tackle.

He is always happy to help and nothing is too much trouble. Staff and tenants at Bowmont House would like to say a big thank you for a job well done! A very deserving Bernicia Way Award Winner.

George Reed, Head of Cyclical and Estates, said: “Steven’s a loyal and valued member of staff who’s very committed to his job. “He takes great pride in his work and takes the time to build relationships with residents and other members of staff.”

Steven Bell, Estates Operative, said: “I do general maintenance and handy man type of work, clearing rubbish off estates, doing little repairs to help tenants out.

“I was a bit taken aback to win an award, it was quite a surprise. “I haven’t really done anything different this year to any other year really. It’s great that our team has been recognised.

“The people that I help out in my job are great. Just by going in to change a light bulb or hang a picture for an elderly person goes a long way.”
