In Memoriam:

February, 2015

John-Christie

Edward Turler

The sad loss has been announced of John Christie and Edward Turler, both of them loyal guests at WLP for many years.

John Christie had been coming to WLP since the late 1940’s and was far more a friend to the staff than a guest.  Andrew, Matthew, Dawn, Sandra and Emma attended his cremation in Cambridge.

Edward Turler was born in Finchley but moved to Switzerland at a very young age, and made annual trips back to WLP with his wife Renée, always staying in Room 7.

Finance News:

January, 2015

Beales Ltd has been banking with Barclays and its predecessor Martin’s Bank for over a century, but after all this time we have decided a change would be good for the company. At the end of March we are refinancing with Handelsbanken in St Albans and we look forward to a relationship as long and as fruitful with them as we have had for all these years with Barclays.

A happy new year to all our guests, staff, management, shareholders and suppliers.
