Our editor became just a little over-excited on hearing that DoubleTree by Hilton were introducing…
We were all delighted to learn that Kerry Adams has been appointed executive head housekeeper at Crieff Hydro in the Perthshire countryside, but it also means this mainstay of the UKHA’s Yorkshire and North-East Region had to give up her role there as chair from the end of December.
Liz Smith-Mills will take on the work of acting chair until elections in April this year. Lisa Williams, executive housekeeper and Catey winner from the Grand, York, has agreed to stand for election as chair.
Kerry Adams would like to thank all her committee members past and present for their hard work and commitment in raising the profile of the profession of housekeeper and will be joining the Scottish Region as a member to continue to fight the cause of our housekeeping profession.
It’s definitely a change of scenery alongside what sounds a busy and fascinating role. Crieff Hydro was established as a hydropathic spa in 1868. As well as the 215-bedroom hotel, seven restaurants, cafes and bars there are 55 self-catering lodges. It’s part of a group of seven noted Scottish hotels led by Stephen Leckie, a fifth-generation member of his family to operate Crieff Hydro.
