London & SE - June meeting review
Over 100 housekeepers and associates gathered at the Army & Navy Club in Pall Mall on June 12th 2018. How fast can one person fill a trolley and race to the bar? And dancing robots....
The London & SE membership enjoyed a fabulous meeting, kindly hosted by Melanie Penn. Thank you too to Ayres De Souza for allowing the UKHA to use the club for the meeting and Emily Moss the events manager at the Army & Navy Club.
Members enjoyed a hot buffet and drinks and an update from Lorraine Dale.
A trolley dash. Laura from Mercura then organised a trolley race down the middle of the room. Five competitors raced to fill one of Mercura's trolleys with toiletries and towels before racing to the bar. The fastest time was Ben Smith from Hypnos Beds who won an ICE watch (see his winning dash below). Holly Ballantyne from Buckingham Palace got 2nd place and a bottle of Champagne, 3rd prize of a box of Belgian chocolates was won by Gary Sayles from the University of Kent. Much whooping and cheering for all!
Laura then let their ZoraBot take over and he entertained us with some radical disco moves! ZoraBot
