Our Deputy Head Housekeeper, Jo, is soon to be married to her sweetheart here at the Buckatree Hall Hotel.  It’s a day that we have all been looking forward to and many of us will be at the night do so apologies in advance if service is a little slower than usual the following morning!

I’m Wayne Jenson, General Manager of the Buckatree Hall Hotel.
Jo has worked here for four years and met Phil, her husband-to-be after winning the prizes on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.  No, Phil was not a model in a shampoo commercial – they met when Jo spent some of the winnings on a holiday to Greece in 2006.

I asked Jo during a very formal ‘interview’ with tea and cake why she chose the Buckatree for her big day.

She said: “I know from working at The Buckatree that the venue is fantastic, the scenery is great for photographs and all the staff are great, it is a family-run business and a great company to work for.
“I will be working up until Thursday so I will have to trust my colleagues that everything will be set for Saturday, but I am sure it will.”

Jo is a bit OCD when it comes down to detail (it’s why she makes such a great housekeeper!) so I really hope, no, I pray we get it right!
We will be pulling out all the stops for them, I know it will be an enjoyable day.
