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.

The H.A.S.A. board mourn the loss of a dear friend: her legacy and memory will live long in our hearts and in our organisation.
