Newsblog hears that Vendee Area Manager Ben Hugill’s montage team had an interesting time over on the west coast, montaging one of Tohapi’s specialist naturist campsites.
Camping CHM Montalivet in the Gironde offers direct beach access and all the facilities you’d expect of a five star site …. as long as you leave your clothes at home. Tohapi’s website gives no indication of what the staff uniform consists of though, and (more to the point) where you attach your name badge.
The site is using borrowed Canvas tents as (luxury) staff accommodation this summer, hence their need for montage expertise. We believe the team were too shy to enter into the spirit of the thing though – wusses.
Shoes and socks don’t count, clearly.
Last one …………….. now, how many weeks until demo?
Montage officially finished last week with the final peg going in on Gigny at about 15:00 on Friday June 16th. Ridiculously late, you may think, and you wouldn’t be wrong either, but I’m taking the view that it’s an improvement on last season and therefore a good thing. Of course, it would have finished somewhat earlier had my montage team recognised the difference between a roof frame and a gazebo, but there you go, just can’t get the staff these days.
Still, we beat the mobile home installation programme, with the final one of these going in on Baume just the other day, and gas testing scheduled for the middle of the week. Jason’s installation team are still on it, with skirts going onto the new mobiles at Gigny over the next few days. All of which means everything should be up and running for high season. Just. Phew!
