Deciphering June 21st Roadmap and Recruitment

Wedding numbers to increase from the 21st June but will be based on the number each COVID-secure venue can safely accommodate; therefore with the following caveat;

“Some restrictions on these events will remain in place to enable them to take place safely. This includes table service requirements, face coverings, social distancing, and restrictions on dancing and singing, as at present.”.

We discussed the announcement and any confirmed guidance. We were joined by those that have helped to push hard for these changes, campaigning heroes from te UK Wedding Taskforce and from #Whataboutweddings.

We also welcomed David Sheen, Public Affairs Director at  UK Hospitality and Dr Charles Trotman, Senior Economist and Rural Advisor at the Country Land and Business Association.

David helped us to discuss the current challenges the hospitality sector is facing around recruitment, whilst Charles joined with an update on ARG  grants and the available financial support from government and the banking sector.

TESTIMONIALS /

“Hostology brings everything in to one place, increasing the efficiency of our event managers, while at the same time creating a great platform for our customers to use.”

Harry & Georgina Dearden, Pennard House

“We now spend much more time with each client, meaning we can offer an even more personal service. This is what we have been waiting for since we opened in 2010.”

Phil and Susie Godsal, Iscoyd Park

“Hostology has carefully thought through how a tech solution can not only make the event management process smoother, saving in time and admin, but can also provide an enjoyable work flow for the client.”

Joshua Dugdale, Wasing Park

“The systemising, streamlining and efficiencies are a game changer for our business and equally will make planning the wedding logistics less ‘dry’ for our couples and their guests – it is a win, win, win!”

Jane Robinson & Samantha Vaughan, Dewsall Court

“Hostology is a fantastic platform that brings the many elements of organising bespoke events under one roof. It has transformed the organisation of our business, saved many staff hours and made us far more efficient.”

Phil and Susie Godsal, Iscoyd Park

“We extensively researched the market to find a software platform that fulfils all the needs we have when arranging events and liaising with customers. Hostology does and is going to massively streamline our business.”

Harry & Georgina Dearden, Pennard House

“So far, I have found the system overall to be really easy to use from our point of view, particularly when it comes to the itinerary.

I think in the long run this is going to save us so much more time to be able to concentrate on the couples and other areas.”

Natalie, Upton Barn
