Monday evening saw Lea Marston Hotel's annual gala dinner to celebrate employee long service and staff success, hosted by the hotels directors. This year's dinner was attended by approx. 60 people comprising of hotel staff, partners and family.
On the evening guests arrived to a warm welcome and a drinks reception followed by a delicious three course meal designed by our head chef and his team. Celebrating long service is the core of the evening and staff members reaching a significant anniversary of 5,10,15,20 and 25 years’ service received vouchers, certificate and pin badge. We had 3 members celebrating 15 years, 5 members with 10 years and 4 members with 5 years’ service. Four members of our family were given an extra special recognition for being long standing members of the team, so special congratulations to:
Liz Gibbon, Sales Manager - 25 years
