To celebrate Mother’s Day, We asked some of our staff to comment on how their mothers have influenced and encouraged them in life, and what they most of all love about them…
Katja Pandza, Assistant Sales & Marketing Manager
My mum is a very strong & hardworking person, one of the best things she has taught me is to fight for what you want and always finish what you started.
Martin Hicks, Managing Director
By instilling in me high levels of resilience & tenacity, that helped her through the hardships experienced in world war two, were she was bombed in her home in East London.
Rebecca Davis, Hospitality Supervisor
My mother & father have five daughters ageing from 22-30, my mother always encouraged us from young ages to take opportunities presented to us and she always instilled that we could achieve whatever we wanted as long as we worked hard and treated other people and ourselves with respect. One of her favourite quotes regarding work and success is: “Always be nice to people on the way up, because you will surely meet them on the way down.”
Chris Platt, Hospitality & Beverage Manager
My mum has always supported me in any decision I have made, whether that be the right one or the wrong one.
Lynn Geldart, Nights Operations
My mum is 81 now and has more energy than a lot of people half her age. About 18 months ago she had a bout of ill health, but once treatment was sorted she was back to playing tennis four times a week and is not satisfied by taking it slowly, but takes pride in her competitive streak! She doesn’t play with any 80+ year olds, but with people in their 50′s and 60′s. She walks the dog twice a day and always keeps the house spotless.
I admire her energy, spirit and positive attitude.
Collette Hurley, Customer Service Manager
My mum has taught me how to make a great Irish Stew!!!
