Cameron presents receptionist with holiday prize
10:00pm Thursday 6th February 2014 in News
RECEPTIONIST Vicky Steedman was already the toast of staff and managers at an Oxfordshire hotel after picking up a top award.
But the icing on the cake came when she was presented with her prize — an all expenses paid trip to the Caribbean island of Grenada — by Prime Minister and Witney MP David Cameron.
Ms Steedman, 25, had just been voted Employee of the Year at the Old Swan and Minister Mill hotel in Minster Lovell when the special guest turned up.
She said: “It was a bit of a shock but he was very nice. He had visited Grenada and said it was a beautiful island, and told me to visit the forests and plantations.”
The former pupil of Wood Green School in Witney has only been working at the hotel since last February.
She had previously worked as a beauty therapist for six years but left to have son Harlen, three and when she returned to work, opted for something different.
“I really enjoy it and it is good to be recognised,” she added.
Hotel owner Lana de Savary said: “It’s always good to welcome the Prime Minister.”
