This is the second season I have worked as a Housekeeper here at Condover. I am from a Housekeeping background, having worked in guest houses and originally for The National Trust.
Favourite part of the job
I get a great deal of satisfaction working within the beautiful Elizabethan building that is Condover Hall. It is a really atmospheric place and I enjoy the buzz of activity when the children are around. Camp UK is my favourite time of year. It’s great to see the whole site united with one group: there’s a real family atmopshere and it’s interesting learning about other cultures, faiths and traditions.
Best work memory
We had a large Hindu group come to the site and there was a fabulous procession down the main drive, with drummers, singing and priests in orange robes. Very exciting and uplifting!
