On Wednesday 2nd September, 46 members of staff from Ashdown Park Hotel and Elite head office, who had more than five years service, enjoyed canapés and sparkling wine in the sunshine outside the Summer House overlooking the lawns and lake. Elite Hotels’ Managing Director, Graeme Bateman, thanked staff for their continued loyalty and support and gave special recognition and awards to those achieving five, ten, fifteen and twenty years’ service. Accounts Assistant, Julie Urry, was awarded a two night break at any Elite Hotel, along with a £200 shopping voucher in recognition of her incredible 20 years’ service (pictured below receiving her award from Managing Director, Graeme Bateman).
The staff were then treated to a delicious lunch of smoked salmon cannelloni, roast beef and orange crème brûlée in the beautiful Lady Brassey suite.
Ben Booker, General Manager at Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, commented:
“Our staff are at the forefront of our business. We regularly receive very positive feedback from guests about how courteous they are and that nothing is too much trouble. We feel it is important to recognise those loyal and committed staff and this annual presentation and lunch is a highlight in our calendar.”
