I can't believe it is already Easter! Hope you are all having a lovely day and enjoying a nice Bank Holiday break.
March was a busy month for us and a very successful one as we were both surprised and delighted to win the Pride In Thanet Tourism Award for best serviced accommodation in Thanet! With over 80 hotels and B&Bs in Thanet, I can't tell you how thrilled we were that our guests had given us the best write ups last year. Some of the comments made were read out on the night and they were so lovely. A big THANK YOU to all of you that took the trouble to fill out a card last year and endorse what we try to do here at Glendevon Guest House.
Yesterday, with my Ramsgate Town Team colleagues, we hosted a children's Easter Event which was a great success. The children were treated to an Easter Egg Hunt, face painting, bonnet making and a clown who made balloon models. In the afternoon, we also had an egg & spoon race with 27 children taking part and winning vouchers which was sponsored by Ramsgate's wonderful new Little Waves Toy Shop.
As the event took place on Ramsgate's petanque court, Sally Rosebourne organised a petanque competition for the children which they all loved. Twenty kids got to play petanque for the first time and prizes were donated by Sally and our fabulous Harbour Chocolate Lounge who now make Easter chocolate cabins as well as cute little ducks.
We are very lucky here in Ramsgate and lots of our local businesses donated eggs for the hunt and by the end of the day, over 200 eggs had been devoured by our youngest residents! Personally, I am happy to wait ayear before I see another Easter Egg!
