The Crown in 2006


su 31 Dec

Dancers include Fram's media slutsAgain a fired up No Spring Chicken got everyone dancing and gave Opportunity Knocks to chef Gary and his dad (who looked nothing like The Proclaimers) and housekeeper Hester (Santa baby).  After complimentary Bucks Fizz (May I say your hair is looking particularly lovely this evening) and theChef Gary and his dad obligatory Auld Langs Syne (with some kissing) recently resigned barman Will (he's off to be a ski Housekeeper Hester singing Santa Baby instructor) led a very good natured and longer than last year conga line round The Market Hill.  Ellie Adele was much admired by everyone including Community Police Officer Andrea Honeywood and yet again a thundering good time was universally enjoyed.

Cilla charmed the children as a clown

For the 2006 Street Mandy and Tess Fayre it was a free choice in fancy dress at The Crown.  The pic of Cilla as a clown was Tinkerbell squeezing through so successful that The Community News printed it, Mandy liked her saloon girl costume so much she didn't want to send it back, the cowboy saloon theme continued behind the bar and as in 2004 we had another charming Tinkerbell.

Excitement builds for Friday's bungee jump with an article in yesterday's East African, our Scottish chef jumping in the kilt (possibly in Black Watch mode), four corporate entertainment tables booked (though there are still tables left) and BBC TV's Look East expected to do a live broadcast from the jump.

Free wireless Internet in the lounge 

Buying a hot chocolate or coffee gives you the right to sit in the lounge and drink it and then, like this lad has worked out, you can get free wireless Internet to do your homework!

Kelly Doel in the sunshine and the courtyard of The CrownThe new person in reception and working very closely with Tracy Clifford is Kelly Doel.  If Kelly can put up with Roy (and it's surprising how many people can) then she will be helping to launch the new restaurant in the stables conversion at the back of The Crown later this year.

Malgorzata and her first bouquetMalgorzata (who inevitably we know as Maggie) was 27 today and rather touchingly she said this was the first time she'd ever been given flowers.

A wireless internet repeater was installed Monday in the housekeeper's room and free wireless Internet is now available in the majority of the bedrooms as well as the bar, lounge, etc.

The Gamekeeper in the barHappy New Year and free! (but don't tell Roy) wireless Internet is available in the bar, lounge and dining room.  Just turn up with your wireless enabled laptop and connect to The Fram Crown channel.

Over the next couple of weeks the service will be extended to all the bedrooms.


Two club chairsRoom Three is much liked because the "lobby" is big enough to use as a sitting room and even has its own television.  When you enter Room Three facing you are two club chairs where you can sit to watch the tv to your right.  Also on your right is the door to an immense walk in wardrobe and the steps leading to the bathroom.  The "lobby" can take two cots or a cot and zed-bed.  To your left is the bedroom with a desk and a comfortable double bed.
