We’re pleased to announce that our daughter Chantelle will be joining the business here at Herdwick Croft. We’ve asked her to write a little bit here to introduce herself to you all:
I’m delighted to be joining the Herdwick Croft business after years of watching my parents work so hard to make it into a success. I’ve always had an interest in joining the family business, and enjoy being around the customers on the park so it seems like a natural step to take. I think it’s important to keep the park in the family, but I also want to help develop the holiday park – I’ve got lots of fresh ideas that I want to implement and can’t wait to get started on it.
I’m 20 years old, but I’ve already been working in hospitality for more than 5 years and I plan to use the customer service knowledge and skills that I’ve learned into the caravan park. I love to help charities and plan events, and I can be a little chatter box which I think has come in useful so far when working with customers! I always do my best to help anybody, and if it’s something I’m unable to help with I’ll look for other people who can.
To start with I’ll be helping to set up Herdwick View and run the booking and marketing of the cottage, as well as the day-to-day running, cleaning and care of the park. I’ll also be shadowing my dad in sales of new and used holiday homes and on his other duties in running the park, and hopefully helping to develop some new and exciting ideas! I enjoy bringing new ideas and I’m really looking forward to getting started.
I’m sure I’ll see you around the park soon – just give me a wave, and if there’s anything I can help with please ask!
