With the festive season in full swing, it is time to reflect on our second year at Spot in the Woods with our final Blog of 2019.
During the year, the hard work has continued thanks to my fantastic team, headed up by Rowena, Ana and Gavin. They have taken on the day to day management and built up a very loyal customer base who love Spot. We have partnered with even more talented and inspiring local suppliers, artisans and crafts people. And it has been wonderful to watch the changing of the seasons here in the beautiful New Forest.
Now would seem to be the perfect time to say a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to so many people, without whom this journey would not be possible.
Firstly can I thank our amazing staff, who work so hard and with such passion and enthusiasm, in a very busy and bustling Spot. The kitchen team, our porters, housekeeping and our front of house teams – who many of you know whether eating, drinking or staying with us.
Secondly to our many of hundreds of new and often returning guests, who the team love to see and serve. Especially in December with so many families, friends and relatives from distant shores. We are open right up until Christmas Eve in the Kitchen Café, Meet Up Spot for all your festive events, and the Shop for gift and present ideas. And we are available to book up to 23rd December for our cozy Bed & Breakfast.
Finally, as I reflect on this very challenging and desperately sad year for Romy and I and our close knit family, may I thank ASI for recently producing such a wonderful video in tribute to Gerard – it is very special. Romane and I are very touched by the warmth and generosity of those who so fondly remember Gerard. He may no longer be with us but he is certainly remembered by many with ongoing love and affection. We are truly grateful for the continued kind and generous sentiments that so many send us. We shared him with so many during his life and continue to do so with his tremendous legacy.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
With my warmest wishes, Nina and all the team at Spot in the Woods x
