Today one of Beaufort Park's longest serving team members, Carol, retires after an incredible 20 years service.
Carol started way back in June 1995, as a housekeeper responsible for the beautifully maintained public areas, such as reception, communal areas and bars.
Over the decades, Carol has become a much-loved member of the team, truly earning a place in the affections of everyone that has worked with her.
Lesley Bewley, who worked with Carol for much of this time, said: "Carol has been such a hardworking and loyal member of staff and will be greatly missed by us all. On behalf of everyone at the hotel, I'd like to say a huge thank you for everything she has done over the years."
So, what will Carol do with her time as a lady of leisure? Well, we hope she'll continue with her Beaufort-renowned baking talents, icing the most beautiful of cakes. But above all, Carol adores spending time with her family, not least her beloved grandchildren.
Here's to you, Carol. Thanks you for 20 wonderful years!
