Yorkshire Summer BBQ Review

    Rudding Park was a fantastic venue for our annual Summer BBQ on 17th July.

    Rudding Park Hotel and Spa was a fantastic venue for our annual Summer BBQ & the sun even stayed out, allowing us to enjoy alfresco dining. Singer Carly Wood, lead vocalist of Carly & the Kicks, provided brilliant entertainment throughout the evening. To hear more of Carly's vocals you can visit www.soundcloud.com/carly-and-the-kicks.

    The BBQ tantalised our taste buds & was served excellently by the team, the kitchen brigade received loud applause from all our members to show our gratitude. Rachael Park, Executive Head Housekeeper, was superb host as usual with her team enabling guests to have an enjoyable show round of the luxurious Spa. Raffle Prizes were in abundance thanks to the generosity of our members. 

    Thank you to Debbie Jones of Girbau, for sponsorship of the wine sand beer & Sophie Price of Unity Group Ltd for sponsorship of the arrival drinks. 

    Welcome to new attendees Diane Whiteside from HC One, Felicity Marsden from Harewood House & Edward Wick of MGI Facilities Management. Grant Clothier attended his first meeting representing Diversey.

    Finally, huge congratulations to Rudding Park for Accessibility Award at the Catey's.
