On Monday some 30 members of staff and friends of Milsom Hotels joined together to support the Hospitality Action Cyclathon. The weather was perfect when the team set off from The Pier at Harwich – slightly overcast with the promise of a spot or two of rain …

The route took them part way along the Harwich to Colchester Cycle route before cutting across to Bradfield, Mistley and back to Dedham. They finished at Maison Talbooth for a well deserved BBQ by the pool. As you can see from the attached photo, we all wore bright pink tee shirts so couldn’t be missed – few negative comments by some of the men for the colour choice!
Milsom Hotels hope to raise over £4,500 for Hospitalty Action, a worthwhile charity which gives active help to members of the industry both past and present.

It’s still not to late to support Paul et al – visit Just Giving for more info or call Bridget on 01206 321101
