News from Sysonby Knoll

We have the Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray for lunch every Monday. Last week we also had the Rotary Club of Perterborough Wellington and Shepshed rotary who visited us as a half way house to compete against each other in Minor Sports. For those not in the 'know' it is pub games eg Jenga, dominoes, cards (darts not allowed - health & safety). Still believe the Melton Clubs games of conkers and pea shooters was more fun !

Lots happening/ happened this week.

We are just reviewing the A la Carte menu to change for a more summer season menu, so keep on an eye on the web site for the new menu and any offers to promote it.

We had an unannounced day visit from the AA hotel inspector. We showed her round the hotel pointing out the work done since the visit last year. She was impressed with the room upgrades completed and ones planned, and congratulated the housekeepers on the cleanliness standards in all areas - well done to Viv and her team.  We will maintain our 3 stars and 78%.

This weekend we welcome Mr Lowe and the reunion group from the RAMC- Royal Army Medical Core. They have been meeting up every year since the end of the war. Since 1992 they have met at Sysonby Knoll. This means it is there 20th year- there is no better advert for the hotel than that!! Numbers have decreased over the intervening years. In 1992 we must have had about 40 for the dinner on the Sunday evening. This year we have 5 of the original group coming plus their family.
