Green Champion of The Year

Carl Mullen, a member of our Maintenance team, was shortlisted for the national Considerate Hoteliers Green Champion of the Year award which recognises the dedication and determination of staff who inspire others and lead the way with green initiatives in their hotel. Carl was highly commended for the work he has put into restoring the woods around Moor Hall - in his own time, with help from a colleague, Ray Lamb, he has cleared away several tons of decomposed leaves and over seventy laurel bushes to reveal a beautiful serpentine pathway, stone arches and what was once a shrubbery garden. The area was officially opened by Andrew Mitchell MP on Friday 17th June 2011 as part of the hotel’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
