Princesses to arrive at Buckatree Hall… Book today!

November 2016

Princess Party Telford

Wow what a response to our Let It Snow – Princess Party! The phones went wild as news on our Facebook page reached more than 22,000 people!

There’s no doubt Frozen is as popular as it was 12 months ago! We don’t blame you – who wouldn’t want to take the chance to dress up as a little princess or prince and hang out with the ‘real princesses’ for a couple of hours!

Lots of people have bought tickets and given them as early Christmas presents off grandparents and aunty and uncles or just bought them to make sure everyone is in the festive mood for the big day.

So what’s happening and when?

Our Princess Party inspired by the hit movie Frozen will be held at the hotel on Wednesday December 21st from 12noon till 2pm.

We are expecting lots of mini princesses to turn up in their beautiful dresses and little boys ready in their party outfits to dance and enjoy the first week of the Christmas holidays.

We’ve had parents wanting to get in early and secure their tickets so they can book that special day off work. Or for those who will be still running around getting the last minute presents it will be a welcome two hours of sitting down and enjoying watching the children be entertained by someone else!

Children’s tickets are just £10.95 to include a sandwich lunch and entertainment (under 2’s are free) and £5.95 for adults to include coffee and a mince pie.

We don’t want your little prince or princess left disappointed so book today by calling 01952 641821.

Hotel bosses taking Pride in the Community by helping out at charity event

May 2016

Bayley Mile Collage

It’s not often you get a big charity event on your doorstep, so when it does happen we feel it’s best to get involved.

And we were delighted to be involved in the Bayley Mile in Wellington yesterday.
Not sure what it is? Let me tell you.

I’m Wayne Jenson, General Manager at Buckatree Hall Hotel, and I first heard about the Bayley Mile when I was looking into events that happen near our hotel. We like to be involved in a number of events nearby and help out whenever we can so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

The Bayley Mile is a historic road race ran by local school children competing to win the fastest linear mile time.

This year it was the 20th anniversary of the event and we were so proud to be there watching these eager students – competitiveness was truly alive!

We pitched our gazebo in the car park by Wellington Civic and Leisure Centre and handed out squash, tea, coffee and biscuits to those who deserved it as well as family and friends who had come along to offer support.

And boy did they deserve it!

We had never been before so we were not sure what to expect but it was just a brilliant community event which celebrated everything about Wellington and the people in it. The children were great, I think many miles had been trodden in preparation and practice for the event and many trainers worn out.

Medals were presented by Paralympian Mickey Bushell MBE, who lives just down the road in Arleston!

It made us very proud to be based in Wellington and very proud to call this our local community. People were certainly thirsty after all this hard work so we were pleased to be able to provide the squash and biscuits to refresh them a little. It was a warm afternoon but thankfully not too sunny and no rain.

There was an open race at the end of the day too, for anyone who wanted to show the kids how it’s done – if only I hadn’t been wearing a suit or due back at the hotel, I definitely would have been able to show them a thing or two!
