Well it’s been a really busy week here at the hotel with the arrival of our new reception desk. It’s going to be a all singing all dancing one, obviously Geoff was in his element helping Paul from ‘Carl Joseph’ with the installation, we think Geoff really likes the new desk. He couldn’t resist a little pose on the desk…. bless!
We have also ben busy celebrating Roy’s ‘special’ birthday the big 50 (although he doesn’t look a day over 49!) fizz and cake were the order of the day! Half term has been good with lots of lovely visitors to the hotel, only 12 days to go before the Great North Swim. Our swimmers Mike D, Mike H, Jonathan & Hannah D have been getting lots of practice in, Westie our Westmorland Bear isn’t taking part he doesn’t want his fur to shrink! He will be going along to cheer in our swimmers and join in the celebrations afterwards. Jonathan also took part in the Mallastang Yomp a 23 or 12 or 6 mile yomp or run over Wild Boar Fell up to Nine standards and finishing in Kirby Stephen, he chose the 12 mike route with Hannah and her folks opting for the easier 6 mile family yomp!
Westie did go along on the 6 mile yomp he found it hard going for a small bear so this week he has treated him self to a little down time in Oxley’s …. its a hard life being a hotel bear! Weather wise it’s been glorious this week long may it continue it’s the Grasmere Gallop this Sunday the 8th of June so good luck to all the runners in that!
Till next time Regards Westie the Bear xx
