Sheila Mingay-Sales

I am one of Crocus Fields fabulous cooks!


I have worked here since 2001 and loved every minute.


Some of my qualifications include NNEb (Nursery Nurse education Board), NVQ3 Hospitality and Management, NVQ2 Preparation and Production of Food and Nutricion.


I like my job because I enjoy feeding people and seeing how much they enjoy the meals I have created. I like to make them happy and look forward to their meal. I like liaising with the parents and reassuring them theat their child's dietry needs can be met. 

I like Crocus Fields because I have responsibility to esure that the young people are fully catered for. I enjoy the banter between me, the staff and the young people. I feel part of the team and enhoy the general working atmosphere and ethos. I love it when the kids talk to me through the hatch whilst I'm working. 

About me

I am good at creating varied dishes, baking cakes, communicating with staff and young people. I am well organised, and a clean and tidy worker. 

I love a good laugh. I enjoy walking, reading (when I have the time). I make celebration cakes and love making kid's birthday cakes. I love jewellery and nice cloths. I love the independence my car gives me.
