Estates news

…Another lovely bedroom upgraded at WLP. This time it is Bedroom 86 in Chestnut Lodge which has received new Zoffany wallpaper, new lighting, and newly painted woodwork. New wooden headboard to follow [left pic]

…An excellent new building has been built over the winter months at BH, to house the maintenance department and to provide more storage for banqueting chairs and tables [pic right].

And finally…

WLP hosted the Beales Hotels Pensioners lunch this week – a joyful occasion where over 30 former members of staff aged from mid 60’s to 90 came together to celebrate memories of working in this wonderful family firm. The longevity of service was again a feature with over 600 years at Beale’s between all present. Equally the happy times when at work were mentioned time and again, whether in tough physical jobs like housekeeping, kitchen or banqueting, or in more mentally demanding office and management roles. It was a delight to see so many dear colleagues, who have now become dear friends as well.
