    Remember that heartwarming story from West Tower in Aughton and its wonderful hospitality for local NHS staff working on the frontline at the height of Covid 19?

    Our thanks to general manager Stephanie Beqo for these reflections on how - and why - it all happened:

    'I decided to open the bedroom for NHS staff because I have a lot of friends who work for the NHS and was very aware of the additional hours, longer shifts, etc. they were all working.

    'I had also read various posts on social media with how NHS staff were conflicted: they wanted to go to work but were then worried about coming home to their family especially if that included someone in the high risk category.

    'I knew I could help by offering a place for them to rest in between shifts or as a base for those leaving their family home to continue working, and thought if they can do it so can I!

    'I too left my family home and moved into the site in order to manage the bedrooms for the NHS staff: we had doctors and nurses from Ormskirk, Southport and Aintree stay with us throughout the 12 week period who have left lovely messages on both FB and Instagram.


    'I knew back in March that this pandemic would bring out the best and the worst in both people and businesses and was determined it would bring out everything positive that we stand for at West Tower!'

    Stephanie of Aughton is pictured with husband Emilio and family taking time out on Windermere and with staff at the award winning hotel who are all looking forward to getting back to normal.
