A huge thank you to all of our very kind supporters who voted for us in the Venus Awards, Employer and Employee categories. The public vote closed at midnight on Monday 23rd and votes have now been counted…. The competition was tough and whilst we did very well, sadly we did not manage to garner quite enough votes to be in the top three, although apparently it was close run.
However, we were inundated with messages of support, lovely comments from people telling us how deserving Pearl was of the Employee of the Year award and just generally telling us how much they love the team and Hotel TerraVina- thus we are not disappointed, how could we be, knowing that there is so much loyalty, enthusiasm and support for us all…. Gerard and I think that Pearl, along with everyone else who works with us are super special and we are very lucky to have them all with us. They make us feel very proud and we don’t need to win an award to know that they are fantastic.
Congratulations to all those who are now through to the final three in the various categories; we wish them all well in the final judging. In the meantime, Pearl and Suzi are looking forward to the awards night, when they will go as guests in posh party frocks.
On a different note, Laura is on a wine trip to Australia and is back next week. We are looking forward to having her “home” as we have missed her, but in her absence, Tanguy, Anna- Maria, Anna and Marcello have been doing a sterling job and they have grown in confidence over the past few weeks- well done to them all for “holding the fort” so well.
‘Till next week and as always thank you for reading the blog and also for casting votes, we greatly appreciate it.
