Farewell

To Julie Kent, General Manager at BH. Julie was taken on by Trevor Beale in 1988 and has worked for seventeen years in the company, an outstanding record. Not only was she promoted to General Manager of Hatfield Lodge Hotel, but she also oversaw the demolition of the old hotel, and the opening of the amazing new hotel we have today. She will be much missed and we wish her and Derek every success in the future.

Farewell too, to Craig Kuklys, Chas Khattran and James Pollard (BH).

Welcome

To Callum Kennedy, incoming General Manager at BH. Callum has proved inspirational at WLP during his 2½ years as Deputy General Manager, successfully helping David Williams in running a very tight operation, while on the side achieving a Masters in Music from the University of Hertfordshire.

Special Events Programmes for 2006

These are now published online for WLP and BB at www.bealeshotels.co.uk, and will be shortly finalised at BH – a fantastic selection of events across the company – we are currently among the best in this respect.

And finally...

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our guests, staff, pensioners, shareholders and management.

 

Andrew Beale
Managing Director
