Our dearest Hazel Barnard of Hychem passed away suddenly on the morning of Friday the 16th of November 2012. Hazel was a long serving member of the H.A.S.A. board and she lived our mission: To passionately drive the professionalisation of Housekeeping.

Hazel was kind to both humans and animals and constantly strived to find ways to leave a better world for generations to come. She was a champion for the environment always looking at alternatives rather than then the harsh pesticides and chemicals we use in our industry. “No” was not a word often used by Hazel and she went out of her way to assist members of our organisation, always imparting her wealth of knowledge for the betterment of housekeepers.
