The Grand Hotel, Scarborough 23rd September 2017Brett Rogers
Location: The Grand Hotel, Scarborough
Team Members: Brett, Nicola Martin, Allison and Pam
Time: 8.00pm until 2.00am
We arrived at the hotel and got the impression from the staff at the hotel that they didn’t really want us there. We found that the base room they had allocated to us was locked and that a hotel staff member had taken the key home with them. So we couldn’t get into the base room we had been allocated and we had to take it upon ourselves to find our own room to use as a base room.
During vigils we had members of the public interrupting them. One vigil we had being carried out in the upper ballroom which was not in use, a member of the public walked in and turned the lights on before seeing our group in the middle of the ballroom.
All in all this event was one to forget. The hotel by their own admission messed our event up big time. We will not be returning to this venue.
