Without him there would have been a very different outcome this year and they truly deserve to win this award tonight.
Summarising the evening Sarah House Resort Director commented 'It is so important we recognise the achievements of both individuals, teams and the overall business and have the opportunity to say thank you and well done. Our awards now in their 6th year have grown in popularity and give every person in any role the opportunity to be recognised for their contribution and efforts. Almost every department across the business had someone who achieved great things during 2022, well done to all the nominees and award winners.
We would like to personally thank every single one of our team members for contributing to the business this year. Without them there is no team and there is no business to serve our guests. Another great success of 2022 was meeting our sustainability aim to recycle 30% of our waste, we reached this and recycled 32% of our waste. We recycled 152 tonnes of mixed recycling.This is the weight of 30 elephants or the Statue of Liberty’.
