Happy birthday this week to former Vieux Port courier Keir Murphy-Anderson, seen here celebrating with a day off and a small beer.
Oh come on, push the boat out – have a large one.
Keir left his west coast colleagues to fend for themselves and joined the Area 3 demo team, a decision he may regret if it gets any colder up here in the hills.
Huge welcome back to the office to the lovely Lois, beavering away in R&W once more after maternity leave following the birth of her second sproglet. Ruan joins big sister Livia and dad Gavin to bring the McPhillips family up to a traditional four.
Lois has already been back in the fray for nearly a month, working with Jim and Alison to recruit new staff, hold the fort on weekends, and answer your many and varied questions regarding the weird and wonderful world of camping.
Missed you, Lois!
Buon compleanno to Italy’s Supreme Over-Generalissimo Richie Devaney, seen here celebrating in the office with ….. something.
Errr …. Yule log? Giant roasted caterpillar?
Whatever it is, it’s not all going to fit in there at once.
Welcome on board this week to Will, newly arrived to join the growing team at Beach Garden.
Oops, best get the man some clothes.
Will brings five years experience of working in a pub and b&b, where he did everything from cleaning toilets to cooking breakfast (with a hand-washing stop on the way, one hopes). Sounds like the ideal courier background.
A warm welcome back to Argeles to former Sirene In2Actioner Kasia, back with Canvas this time, and now at next-door Soleil following a transfer from Spain. A bold move there, swapping pirate parties and water games for scrubbing barbecues and changing light bulbs!
Bonne anniversaire en français today to James at Vieux Port, in recognition of his impressive perseverance in learning French. Has to be the only courier in the programme who finishes a hard day’s cleaning and then settles down for an exciting evening with a few verb tables. Getting plenty of practice in the lingo over there this season with their 50+ Tohapi arrivals every Saturday.
HB this morning to veteran Beach Garden courier Ged Capper, celebrating with a dozen back to back cleans, a raft of noise complaints, a broken fridge freezer and an argument with a Frenchman. On the plus side, surely things can only get better.
Courier at the end of a busy Saturday.
