As part of a series of Silver Bay Meet the Team blogs, we’d like to introduce the wonderful Leah, our manager at The Deck House. Discover a little bit about her and what her role entails at Silver Bay Holiday Village below.
1. Leah, tell us a little about yourself and your experience…
I’ve been here at Silver Bay for 3 years so many already know me here, collectively I have six years’ experience within the industry from managing Cardiff blues box in the Principality stadium to planning weddings! As many already know I’ve recently graduated with a degree in business management and law so I’m now ready for my next challenge here at Silver Bay!
2. What does a day as bar manager at The Deck House entail?
Every day is different! That’s what I love about it, I’m always doing something different. One day I might be planning an event for the Deck House another I might assist Lee in the new menu drafts or more recently I’ve tasted a few wines in preparation for the new wine list. Someone’s got to do it!
3. What attracted you to the role at Silver Bay Holiday Village?
Silver Bay really is a special place, it really has so many amazing qualities! But having seen the amazing transition of the Deck House, which is arguably the most beautiful venue in North Wales, I was really excited to take on the challenge of ensuring its success!
4. What have been your highlights of working at The Deck House so far?
The big highlight for me was the summer party! It was fantastic seeing all of our Silverbayer’s on the dancefloor and enjoying themselves. It really was a fantastic night and there will be many more to come!
5. Do you have any menu recommendations?
Lee really does make a fantastic curry, they’re bursting with flavour! I would also recommend the seabass, it’s so refreshing and lee’s tapenade compliments the fish so well! If you’re lucky enough to catch it on the special, the lamb shank is a must!
6. What’s the best part about being part of the Silver Bay team?
The whole team has such good rapport it really is great to be a part of it! We are all so supportive of one another and that’s really important, knowing that someone is always there to help is brilliant. I love being part of a team where there are so many different characters who all have different skills, it’s really great because the combination of different personalities and skills helps us to keep on generating cool ideas for the park!
7. Any hints on what residents can expect from the Deck House in the upcoming months?
We have a tantalising new menu arriving mid-October with lots of winter treats! We a have the Halloween and the Christmas party to look forward to! This year, the New Year’s Eve party is going to be the best one yet! I’m already planning lots of different things that are going to make the night extra special! The Deck House has just introduced a new wine list with lots of special wines and we will be hosting a wine tasting evening during October week for our Silver Bayers.
