Clarys courier Amber Wing was looking forward to celebrating her 21st birthday by cleaning a few mobiles, followed by greeting the odd arrival in the afternoon.
But the family had other ideas, and booked a sneaky surprise weekend on site, getting in under the radar by going with Eurocamp.
Mum, Dad, Nan and sisters all rolled up first thing in the morning having driven overnight from home in the south of England – far too early to get into their mobile, but does this really matter when the bar’s open?
Hmmm …. can this be called correct uniform?
Looks like Interlaken courier Tony Burchill’s patent pest control methods have caught on if this sign spotted in lodge reception at Berny is anything to go by.
Have to hope the Interlaken infestation has run its course though – your Newsblog reporter had the definite impression that a certain sense of humour failure was setting in after the 300th ex-rodent.
Spies in the office tell Newsblog that today is maintenance manager James Gibson’s birthday. We have to hope he’s finding time to enjoy it in amongst the logistical challenge of overseeing all the programme’s mobile home and deck installations.
HB James! Not to mention bon courage.
Staff live accommodation continues to move on from the old school tent behind the rubbish bins experience we were all used to in the olden days.
Here we have the new and improved pad at La Baume on the Cote d’Azur, complete with private deck, fencing and ensuite gazebo. Ritzy.
Newsblog hears as yet unconfirmed rumours that Sirene’s infamous gravel pit has received a facelift over the winter as well, but photographic evidence has not as yet been forthcoming – watch this space!
It seems certain members of the team on Océano d’Or are not really pulling their weight whe it comes to montage cleaning.
Looks like the mutts feel that enjoying the first sunny day since what feels like Christmas is a whole lot more of a priority than cleaning mould off bathroom walls, and Loraine is having no luck convincing them otherwise.
Not sure what the montage ream in Normandy is doing which requires a full on hazmat suit, but it’s good to see team leaders looking out for the health and safety of their minions.
In theory that ought to be Grande Metairie courier Cat Sydenham under all that gear, but if you ask me it could be anyone.
As a new season gets under way with frankly far too much rain so far, there are always a few snags to pick up.
Mobile home installers at Vieux Port clearly didn’t try opening the door before they blocked this mobile and plumbed it in. Skinny customers only please!
Also on VP, the new gas delivery driver got a bit confused and left the gas bottles in entirely the wrong place – just as well the team’s trusty buggy had been delivered on time.
Senior courier James Kerr’s verdict on all of this …..
