Spring 2018

Posted by Elizabeth Durrant 04/04/2018 0 Comment(s) News,

We’ve been keeping busy over winter creating no less than 5 bespoke Idlers for Mama Shelter, a very eclectic and funky hotel chain, for the very newly opened Belgrade Hotel (https://www.mamashelter.com/en/belgrade). It certainly took some organising but was well worth it as they look beautiful. And now their Prague Hotel would like 5 Idlers too!


We’ve were also busy celebrating my father, Dr Roddy Macaulay’s 90th birthday back in March – he is in fact the original Wilverley Idler. To explain, my parents’ house is called Wilverley and as he more often than not, post retirement of course !, could be found enjoying his G&T in our lovely old swingseat from the 1920s. He was joined by Wilverley’s very first customer, John Bourke, a great friend from Ireland, from his rugby playing days right here in Broadstairs, at Thanet Wanderers RUFC. In fact, John featured in the RFU’s website in March telling them all about a gift he made for my father (http://www.englandrugby.com/news/features/from-rugby-friends-ireland-john-bourke-gift-the-game/)


But I digress…! We’ve also been busy welcoming some new customers to us… As you can see from the photo, here’s an Idler snugly packed away for a very happy birthday girl!


One happy birthday girl!


One of the most wonderful things about this business is when we meet our customers. So much is done over the web or the phone but it is genuinely so much more enjoyable to meet you! So if you’d like to experience what the Idler is all about please do give us a call and arrange a visit!
