LPH will continue for 2016!

on Thursday, 03 September 2015. Posted in Blog

We are pleased to announce that LPH will continue to operate into 2016, albeit with a few changes.

As many of you know, John and Gail separated last September, but have still worked together over the 2015 Season. We have also been negotiating with 2 potential purchasers for the past few months but unfortunately they changed their minds about purchasing the whole business and therefore John has decided to continue for at least the next 2 years.

The major change will be that Deb Lyons, a recent guest, will now take over as the main hostess providing the catering and senior housekeeping role. We are also changing our house keeping staff, so you will see a number of new faces around LPH.

Gail will still be the joint director with John, but is moving on to set up Gravett Business Consultancy, providing pre-business start up advice via the Chamber Hub to small businesses, also marketing and business development expertise. She will also continue to be responsible for all guest communications prior to their visit to LPH, ie bookings, confirmations, website and Facebook pages and organising the international trips to Tuscany.
