Summer Ball - 6th July 2018
Delia discussed the summer ball which is being held in Edinburgh in July, we hope that you have all booked your tickets, if you haven't yet you can do so here.
Delia also raised some interesting points regarding the impact cleaning agents are having on people’s health. We discovered that unbelievably some can be more damaging than smoking 20 cigarettes a day.
Elections were a hot topic with the members. A big thank you to Chris Bick and Viv Gayle for their contribution to the committee. Delia explained that they were standing down and invited anyone that was interested to join the committee. So if you are considering joining, please get in touch.
Braving the Shave!
Sara Kilbey-The Executive Head Housekeeper of The Stratford Hotel and her Head Housekeeper Tania Tilley, shared with the members that a member of their staff, Helen Jaakonari was having her hair shaved on Wednesday 6th June for McMillan ‘Brave the Shave’ and was donating her hair to The Princess Trust - see the gallery below.
