The Kindness Of Strangers

The staff at the South Marston Hotel and Leisure Club have been commended by the couple and organisers for their hard work and kindness, volunteering to work for no pay to save a couple’s wedding from disaster.

Due to take place on a Saturday, newly-wed couple Amanda Mularczyk and Adam Sanders were notified on the Thursday that the venue was closing down. Having booked the party for 200 guests years in advance, spending thousands in the process, the couple were devastated.

However quick-thinking and compassionate hotel staff who had lost their jobs stepped in on the Saturday as planned, to ensure the wedding party went smoothly. In spite of having been told that they would not be paid the month’s wages, as many as a dozen former members of staff decided that the couple’s big day should not suffer and that they would work regardless.

“We have been overwhelmed by the team’s efforts,” the groom Adam Sanders, 35, told a local newspaper. “They bent over backwards for us.”

Unforeseen Circumstances

While the venue had announced in May that it expected to close down in October, the date was abruptly brought forward and could have left the couple bitterly disappointed. In spite of many couples planning their weddings over a year in advance, such events are not uncommon. While regular guests may be somewhat inconvenienced, a wedding party may have taken months or longer to plan, and at considerable expense.

In the Hampshire area alone, a number of other venues recently closed down including Alexandra House in Wroughton, Blunsdon House Hotel, and The Wiltshire Hotel Golf and Leisure Club.

Adam Sanders and Amanda Mularczyk were fortunate enough to be helped by kind and selfless staff, but with additional forward-thinking and preparation, other couples can help to spare themselves from stressful last minute changes. Booking reputable venues and churches such as those approved by the Church Of England, and respected services such as experienced Hampshire wedding photographer http://www.lemontree-photography.co.uk/ can help to avoid disappointment.

The couple’s party organised a small donation to the staff for their efforts and were delighted that the happy day could progress as planned, in spite of unforeseen circumstances.

According to the RSPCA, in 2015 there were 8.5 million dogs in the UK making them the most popular pets, with cats coming a close second. It is no surprise therefore that many of the UK’s dog owners enjoy taking their pooches to dog shows where they can not only show off their physical skills but also the way that they look.

Before the Show

One of the main things to do before the show is pack all of the things you will need for the day, including items such as a show collar and lead, water and a water bowl, poo bags and items for additional grooming before the show. You may also want to visit other shows with your dog so that they can get an idea of what a dog show is all about. Practice is also important, so spend some time teaching your dog how to walk and behave properly.

The best time to bath your dog is the day before the show so that their coat has time to dry properly. You may also want to have booked your dog into a service such as dog grooming in Cheltenham like that offered by http://www.blossoms-pet-care.co.uk/dog-grooming/dog-grooming-cheltenham.aspx the day before the show. This will save you time on the day of the show itself.

On the Day of the Show

On the day of the show itself, it is always a good idea to use a travel crate. This is an ideal way to transport your dog to the show as well as somewhere to keep your dog while waiting until it is time to take part. It is usual to decide which class to enter in a show on the day itself, as you will be able to see which ones would be suitable for your dog. The show itself is supposed to be fun, so wherever your dog finishes, make sure you both enjoy the experience.

Who owns your company

“The purpose of a business is not simply profit; this purpose must be found in its very existence as a community of people who strive to satisfy various forms their basic needs, and who form a particular group at the service of the whole. society profit is a regulator of life as a business, but not the only one; there are other human and moral factors must be considered and that in the long term, are at least as important to the life of a business”.

Even in the economic scenario around us and increasingly consolidated neoliberal currents, although in some countries cunningly camouflaged as progressive theories of center or left, I must admit that meet these quotes in some business management books is like a soft sting that impels to further strengthen the ideas, so often expressed in this column about the need to reorient the management of people (employees and customers) to humanistic models that consider the benefit of the company as more important than a number in the income statement, which only benefit (forgive the redundancy) shareholders or former leaders. » Read more
