Ann Mobbs – head housekeeper at Maison Talbooth retired

Ann Mobbs – head housekeeper at Maison Talbooth retired last week after working at the hotel for more than 16 years. Paul, Geraldine, Maison staff past and present joined Ann and her husband Cefin for a lunchtime send off (with a glass or two of Champagne!) at the hotel last week.

Ann loves her garden and is really looking forward to being able to spend more time there in her retirement. With this in mind the staff at Maison Talbooth clubbed together to buy her some patio roses from Cants plus the pots to put them in.

We wish Ann a long and happy retirement!
