Richard Manktelow, who has worked at the Mid Sussex hotel for nearly 8 years, won Ashdown Park’s prestigious ‘Employee of the Year’ award in 2012 after being nominated by his fellow colleagues for his hard work and his high standards.

Richard said: “I’m so honoured to be given the opportunity to prove myself in this challenging role.
