Emma takes charge of hotel events

A NEW manager with links to the town is joining one of its premier hotels.

Emma Wood has been appointed weddings and events operations manager at The Crown in Bawtry and will also be making the busy market town her home. She replaces Tom Norton who held the post for seven years.

Emma studied event management at Derby University and decided to pursue a career in hospitality after helping to organise events for the Aurora Centre cancer charity after her mum was diagnosed with the disease more than five years ago.

“Of the many events we organised for the charity, it included the Cusworth music festival which was a huge success. I just love the hospitality Industry and really enjoy dealing with customers,” said Emma.
