The team of housekeepers at Potters Resort make sure that each room is kept clean and tidy, so Potters celebrated the hardworking team by hosting a special Housekeeping Day on September 26.

The team at Hopton-on-Sea were treated to a cream tea in the morning, before enjoying an It’s a Knockout style game, cheered on by hundreds of Potters Resort guests.

The 40-strong team taking part were split into two, completing jigsaws, skipping, netball and jet ski-style challenges before the winning ‘orange’ team each won a medal and cup.

They then took part in a Treasure Hunt around Resort, a fun bowls tournament and enjoyed a delicious lunch.

They also held a cake sale, raffle and bric-a-brac stall for the Potters team and guests at the Resort, which raised a whopping £1,213.56 for the Potters Friends Foundation, a community interest company set-up in memory of Brian Potter MBE.
