Festive Greetings avid readers!!
We are once again honouring a team member..the one person that has stood out as contributing that little bit extra, and I am delighted to announce that the winner of this pretegious accolade is once again the lovely Tanisha Williams – Conference & Banqueting Supervisor!
Tanisha is one of our long serving employees and works tirelessly along side the Conference & Banqueting Manager Antonio, making sure that everyone attending functions, be it Birthday party, wedding reception, hen night etc has the very best of service. Her attention to detail is seconf to none! Her favourite time of the year at the hotel is trimming up ready for Christmas and it’s fair to say that there is never a bauble out of place or a piece of tinsel trailing! So once again join me in a celebratory toast to Tanisha…may your Christmas lights glow brightly and your festive functions go with a bang!

We are due to say a temporary farewell to our fantastic Beauty Therapist Michelle, who is going off on Maternity Leave (her bump has officially out grown the treatment room!) She will be missed by us all (her Dermalogica facials are to die for!) We wish her all the very best for the imminent arrival of Baby Domenic (Sparkle as named by the rest of the team) and hope she enjoys her baby holiday!
So with the lovely Michelle out of action, the Beauty treatments will be placed in the very capable hands of Harley, who many of you are familiar with (another facial and massage goddess) and a new Beauty Therapist Karen Young who we offer a very warm Dragon Hotel welcome! So don’t worry girls and boys…our team of pamper experts are here to make you beautiful!
We will keep you updated with all the latest offers and baby news!! Until then – think beautiful thought!
It was a pleasure to see so many enjoying afternoon tea on Monday, 11th April 2011 when The Dragon Memories Exhibition was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Swansea, Councillor Richard Lewis. With a trip down memory lane conducted by historian Professor Peter Stead, memories were flowing as swiftly as the tea and coffee!
With a delightful mixture of those who used to work at the hotel, those who celebrated their weddings here and those who simply came to enjoy the afternoon teas of a Saturday, there were plenty of tales captured live on air as Shanny broadcasted live for The Wave.
The exhibition runs throughout the public areas of the hotel until May 12th 2011 and all are welcome to visit at their leisure to view the memorabilia on display.
It gives us great pleasure to award the prestigious Team Member of the Month award for November to the lovely Tanisha, who has elf-lessly gone above and beyond to ensure that the Hotel was trimmed up to perfection ready for Christmas!
Like a shining star she tirelessly ‘Decked the Halls’ and made sure that every tree was worthy of ‘Rockin’ around’ in preparation for the seasonal festivities and with five trees to trim it was ‘snow’ mean feat!
With all the effort she has put in whilst continuing to deliver excellent customer service and high standards it’s no surprise to learn that this year Tanisha can be found on Santa’s NICE list (and we’ve checked it twice!) and her one Christmas wish this year is to find Taylor Lauter in her stocking!!
Some interesting facts that you never knew about Tanisha:
- Her most favourite food is Chicken Fried Rice (Turkey for Christmas Day!)
- She is a big fan of the TV show Glee!
- Her most embarrassing moment ever was when she went to school and discovered that she was wearing odd shoes!! Talk about having two left feet or the boot being on the other foot!!
- She has worked at the Dragon Hotel for six and a half years and still loves her job.
Well done Tanisha and thank you for all your hard work!
The tag line reads ‘The Best of The Best’ and staff and management at The Dragon Hotel are indeed delighted to be included within this elite group once again. (more…)
I can’t believe that October has arrived so soon as it only seems like yesterday that I ran the Cardiff Half Marathon last year! With the lack of training this year I was dreading the day but on the morning of Sunday 17th October I pulled back the curtains and was met by the glorious sunshine and of course this gave me a huge incentive!
I was running as part of a team which consisted of 25 (mad) people all running and raising money for the ‘James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer’ (JW4KC).We had a team photo first then we made our way to our different time zones at the start line as we all had personal goals. My personal goal was just to complete it! Trying to spot members of the team in our matching white and grey vest tops in amongst the 15,000 other runners was proving difficult so Suz and I ran together for the first 6 miles then separated (of course she was eating my dust)!
Once I got into my stride I found I was quite enjoying the run as the route was particularly scenic and what made the scenery more spectacular was when a guy burned passed me dressed ONLY in Borat’s mankini!!! As you can imagine this was just the motivation I needed when hitting the 9 mile mark – haha.
There were a lot of sites, good & bad, but one thing that stands out in my mind was when I saw a couple doing that ‘fast walking’ and I couldn’t pass them!!!! To top things off I thought I knew where the finishing line was but to my horror they had moved it – BIG mistake when I’d already started my sprint finish and there was no going back then.
It was the last 2 miles that proved difficult for me but being as determined as I am there was no way I was giving up and to my amazement I completed the run in 2.05 which meant I managed to shave 12 minutes off my time compared to 2009 so I am over the moon.
Every member of the JW4KC completed the course despite traveling miles to the start line and experiencing falls, injuries and a torturous finish line. The money raised to date is £2337.56 with more money on the way.
If anyone would like to run with the team next year please contact Joanne Popham on firstname.lastname@example.org it really is a fantastic experience, so I challenge you to join our team next year.
