Staff at a hotel on the Worcestershire and Herefordshire border recently planted a tree in honor of their oldest guest.
This Easter, the Colwall Park Hotel in Great Malvern, Worcestershire, planted a flowering tree to celebrate Anne Dunn, the hotel’s oldest guest in nearly 80 years.
Having first visited Colwall Park nearly eight decades ago, Anne has many memories to look back on, with her last visit with her family and her pup, Bronte, this Easter when Anne was given a tree to commemorate her time spent at the hotel.
Managing Director Matt Homans said: “We love to celebrate every guest who stays with us at Colwall Park, but there has always been one special guest who is dear to us – Anne Dunn.
“With our hotel originally built in 1904, it’s amazing to say that we had a guest who witnessed so much of its history over the years.
“From starting her WWII hotel holiday to meeting world famous artist Dame Laura Knight, Anne is definitely part of the Colwall Park family and it was so nice to be able to give something back to show her our immense appreciation for her and her family.
Speaking about the tree donation, Anne Dunn said: “It was such a wonderful surprise and so nice to have a tree planted in my honor. I especially loved the plaque which includes not only my name but also the name of my husband.
“I was joined by my daughter, my son-in-law and their three boys and we had a wonderful weekend together. Everyone was so nice and I can’t wait to come back with more family soon and see what point the tree grows. time.”
In 1945 Anne Dunn, who was only six years old at the time, embarked on her first family holiday in Colwall Park and enjoyed it so much that she continued to visit all these years later.
Anne has enjoyed every trip she has had to the hotel and doesn’t plan on stopping her visits anytime soon.
