HOTELS are extending a warm welcome to essential workers over Christmas and the New Year.
Chesford Grange Hotel and Stratford Manor Hotel will be offering free refreshments from 3pm on Christmas Eve, from 9am on December 27, 3pm on New Year’s Eve, and from 9am on January 2.
“This year, more than ever, we have appreciated what all the emergency services have done for us,” said a spokesman for The QHotels Collection, which runs both venues.
“2021 has been a trying year for all of us and, as small thank you, we are throwing open our doors over the festive period to anyone working in t.e police, ambulance or fire-fighting services to pop in at any time for free snacks and bottomless tea or coffee.”
“While most people get time off with their families and friends over Christmas and New Year these are traditionally busy times for anyone employed in the emergency services.
“We wanted to offer them an oasis of hospitality when they have some down time to have a bite and a warm drink and enjoy a chat with our lovely staff. We look forward to welcoming them – the more the merrier.”
