Here for you in Connah’s Quay

Meet Chris and Tracy

At Connah’s Quay Funeralcare we’re passionate about helping the people of Chester to keep loving life. That’s why even after Chris and Tracey have closed up at the end of the working day, they set about helping their local community.

Whether they’re assisting St John’s Cymru to provide free First Aid Awareness Training, collecting Easter Eggs for local charities or supporting their local foodbank by becoming a drop off point, they always strive to do right by the people of Connah’s Quay.

Because they’re not just here to help you through the bad times. They’re here to help you through the good times too.

Read their stories and you’ll see what we mean.

 

“My name is Chris and I joined the company in 2010 as a part time Funeral Service Operative. I thought this profession was for me so much I became full time after just a few months. After gaining experience in funeral arranging, I then progressed to be full time Funeral Director in 2015. I have never looked back.

I love my role as Funeral Director and the responsibility that comes with it, dealing with families ensuring I give them a professional but personal service for their loved ones. I also spend a lot of time in my local community supporting some wonderful causes. In my spare time I support the Royal Air Force Air Cadets as a Civilian Instructor which helps develop the youth for their future.”

“I joined Co-op Funeralcare in 2018 as the Funeral Arranger in Connah’s Quay and instantly felt part of the community. My role as a Funeral Arranger involves supporting Families and doing my upmost to make things that little bit easier for them in a very stressful time. I cannot express how much my job means to me and along with Chris, strive to provide that personal touch.

I have been overwhelmed by what a supportive community this is, so much so that I am now the Co-op Member Pioneer for Connah’s Quay so that I can help connect the community with each other and the local causes that we support.

In my spare time, I am a Cadet Officer for St John Cymru in Deeside where we train 10-18 year olds in Life Saving First Aid. Earlier this year I won the National Cadet Leader Award for the whole of Wales which is still sinking in!”

Connah's Quay Community Award

Chris and Tracy have been searching for a community champion in the Deeside area and a few weeks ago took to social media to find them. We asked the people of Deeside to tell us who they would like to win the award and the nominations came pouring in for individuals, businesses and charities in the area.

There was some tough competition as nominations came flooding in for all sorts of people and charities, but the team ultimately decided that their Community Award was going to Lynne and Lisa - the volunteers who run Loose Ladies at Radio Deeside.

Tracy commented, "We chose the Loose Ladies because of their dedication and support of several local causes in Deeside. As unpaid volunteers, Lynne and Lisa go above and beyond for our community and have pioneered some great initiatives that have helped lots of people."

It was clear from the nominations that the community of Deeside love Lynne and Lisa as much as we do, so the team at Connah's Quay Funeralcare were overjoyed to present them with the award.

Congratulations and very well deserved!
