“This month I have two nuggets of wisdom to share with you.  An End of Season Review should be one of the most important dates in your diary. Setting aside a specific time with your Management and Estates team to review how your venue performed over the summer is an excellent way to understand ‘what went well’ for example the furniture you placed in the hot spots around your property was well used and well received by visitors. Verses  ‘what could have been better’ perhaps, you didnt have enough parasols during the summer heatwave and as a result were unable to offer the level of sun shelter required by your visitors. A thorough review of your summer season will ensure that any little errors made are not made again.  I would be delighted to attend your review, either via phone or in person. If you give me a call on 0800 6888 983 I can book it in for you.

Now is the perfect time to be thinking about family food for the Half Term Holidays. By the end of October the weather will be colder and visitors will be seeking something hot and satisfying to eat. Street style Cabins and wagons serving jacket potatoes, hot dogs and mini fish and chips will be sure winners and ensure customers are spending money at your venue. Steet food is also a great way to take the pressure off of your cafes and restaurants during busy periods”
