Wendy’s Blog – Themes R Us!

It’s been all about the theme for us since my last blog – chocolate, Mexican, Halloween and Christmas, you name it and we’ve had it! We hosted a chocolate themed dinner for a local client as part of Chocolate Week – what’s not to love about a week celebrating one of my favourite things?? But this was no ordinary event – the chocolate theme ran through every aspect of the […]

Well that’s exactly what I’ve been doing […]

Well doesn’t time fly? We’re now well into May and that all-important summer holiday is just inches away.

Welcome to the second instalment of my new blog! Spring is definitely in the air – and that can mean only one thing for us here at the Holiday Inn Telford-Ironbridge: Christmas! Yes, that’s right! For most people this time of year is all about daffodils, Easter eggs and Mother’s Day. And of course, both Mother’s Day and Easter will be extremely busy for us too, particularly when it comes […]

Now this is new for me – my first ever blog, so be gentle with me! As general manager of the Holiday Inn Telford-Ironbridge, I know how to lead a team, organise an event and keep our customers happy. But when it comes to technology, I’m not the world’s best, so this is a very new venture. I do have a new laptop though that’s just arrived which hopefully should […]
