Couple once again celebrate their Anniversary at The Lindum

Mr & Mrs Webster were with us once again this week to celebrate their anniversary, and left us with their beautiful display of roses. Mr Webster has stuck to the same tradition for what is now 56 years of buying Mrs Webster Roses. And he adds 1 more for every year they celebrate. The roses, supplied by the Lovely Jane of Flower Design look magnificent, and she has supplied them for the past 8 years, and hopefully for many years more to come.
Mr & Mrs Webster who now live abroad always leave the roses with us for the rest of our guests to enjoy, and for us to tell their story

More Christmasssy Decor ! !

You have seen the inside, now we have done the outside. Possibly vi sable from space (however unconfirmed !) the new blue Christmas lights, really give us a status. Simple, but effective. They really stand out, and are a real focal point along the promenade

New Website Gives Hall A Real Boost

There are not many businesses who can claim that they are working partners with one of their area's most Attractive and Idyllic Manor Houses and Tourist Attractions. We at the Lindum and Rowley's Catering can though. And once more we can take this opportunity to promote their newly designed website...

The management at the grade 1 listed manor house have done a fine job assisting the web design company with the new site, which gives them a fresh, inviting look. It is easy to use and certainly boosts the grand image that the hall deserves.

It is a pleasure being the caterers and event coordinators and the hall, every client you meet and event you do has you waiting in anticipation as their is always something different, be it the entertainment, the flower arrangements (usually by the lovely Jane of flower design and of course the fantastic menus themed by ourselves Rowley's Catering.

It always amazes me the amount of people who you speak to about Lytham Hall, and the reply you get is "Lytham Hall....... Where?"

Well this new site will certainly throw some new light on where and what The Hall is all about.

So get visiting the site, and help to make this beautiful building an even bigger tourist attraction

'Tuffers' Pays A Visit

Yesterday, we welcomed Phil Tufnell who arrived for a 1 night stay whilst working on a project for BBC's The One Show

The Former England Spin Bowler was in town for a short stay to record a documentary on a new section for the show called Local Hero's. The organisation featured was The Easterleigh Animal Sanctuary which is a self funded animal rescue centre. Easterleigh relies solely on support from locals and donations to operate and is currently looking after over 100 animals. All their animals no matter how small are looked after until they can be re-homed. None of them are put down, unless a vet has advised to do so. For this great achievement they deserve the recognition.

Phil Tufnell in his cricket career, played 42 test matches and 20 one day internationals for England and over 300 first class matches. Tufnell retired from professional cricket in 2003 and since then has starred on television and radio, including shows like They think its all over, Simply the best and of course The One Show. Phil also appeared in reality television show, I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here !

To sum up, Tufnell and his film crew all enjoyed their stay at the hotel and luckily had fairly good weather for their filming.

Although Minimalistic, The Reception area has a touch of elegance with its fantastic floral displays, and new winter picture boards. The Lighting on the fire surround finishes it well with its warm glow

Hats off to the very creative Louise, who has done a fantastic job decorating the stairs down to the Dining room. Untouched in previous years, they have now been transformed with Holly Wreaths and Classy Golden Bells.
