University of the Third Age November Meeting

At the November meeting Deborah Preston, once described as “Britain’s top Mrs Mop”, made a welcome return to regale us with some more entertaining “Tales from  the housemaids’ cupboard.” With over 34 years in hotel housekeeping in some of the most prestigious hotels in the country she has a wealth of experience to draw upon, sharing with us some amusing anecdotes of things we did not know about hotel housekeeping and some perhaps we would rather not. Deborah also explained the challenges and responsibilities involved in motivating over 170 staff, speaking 27 languages, to be the unsung, unseen heroes of the hospitality trade, 24 hours a day every day of the year.
