Review - London & SE May 2017 meeting at The Conrad
A big thank you to all our members who joined us at The Conrad St James on 9th May. As always our thanks go to Margaret McPherson and her team for ensuring that we had a very successful and beautifully organised housekeeping event.
Our special thanks to the chefs at The Conrad St. James for the superb canapes " the Choriso balls and mini Quiche were outstanding " and to all the service staff who kept our glasses full.
SPONSORED BY: The evening was generously and very kindly sponsored by Berendsen. We sadly said a big thank you and farewell to Mr Chris Hancock after many years of being a great friend and supporter of the association we wish him well on his retirement and look forward to sharing a glass or two with him in the future.
SPEAKERS: Our guest speaker was Rachel Nash from Buckingham Palace talking about Housekeeping procedures at Royal properties. She was joined by Lorraine Dale who gave us more special insights into the trials and tribulations of the role of the housekeeper in a royal household, sharing a few tips and interesting tales!
NEXT MEETING: We look forward to seeing you all at our June meeting which will be held on Monday 12th June at The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel please note the change of day from Tuesday to a Monday.
Thank you to everyone who brought along a raffle prize, which included lots of lovely wine, gift sets, a hairdryer and a mirror!
Bye for now, Lorraine & committee!
PS: Due to unforeseen circumstances we may be looking for a new location for our Summer BBQ, if anyone knows of a centrally located, affordable venue to host this year's event please email firstname.lastname@example.org
