The winner of November’s Winchester Royal Hotel Employee of the Month has been named as Richard Banks.

Richard is the Linen Porter at the hotel and has gone over and above his usual workload in recent weeks dealing with the large volume of linen at this busy time of the year. He also assisted room attendants by staying late and carrying out additional cleaning duties during the month.

Louis Rigney, General Manager at the Winchester Royal Hotel, was delighted to see another new face being handed the award. He said: “We always give this award out on merit and while nobody will win it two months in a row, somebody may win it twice in relatively quick succession if it’s deserved.

“Richard hasn’t won this award before and it’s been a pleasure to watch him working hard and helping out his work colleagues for the benefit of the hotel. I’d like to congratulate him on behalf of myself and the rest of the hotel for his efforts.”

Each winner of the hotel’s monthly award receives a £30 Love2Shop voucher. Richard is seen here receiving his from Louis.
