We are delighted to announce that as of July 6th 2020, Lane End is open for hotel accommodation bookings from key sector workers, business travel, as well as for leisure purposes.
It is important to note that we are being incredibly vigilant and have put in place the necessary measures to ensure the continued health, safety and well-being of our valued customers, staff and suppliers.
As first post-lockdown excursions go, it doesn’t sound like the most exciting day out – yet for 89yr old German-born Mrs Barr it wasn’t just a trip to Lane End Conference Centre, it was a trip down memory lane. For she had last set foot on the site in 1953 – having lived and worked at Wycombe Court Girl’s School (as it was then) for 2 years preparing food and washing up in their kitchens, and preparing and clearing tables in the dining room. She worked 7am to 2pm and 5pm to 8pm every day with two half days per week. As she drove through the village itself she recognised many of the houses and the old hotel, now flats, on the corner of Church Road leading to the venue.

We use five primary senses to learn and gain new knowledge and skills - hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell. These all help us receive and retain information.
The Cambridge dictionary defines training as the process of learning the skills you need to do a particular job or activity. We know that there are different learning styles and that learners absorb information differently, but how does the immediate learning environment affect the way we retain new information?
Given the unprecedented global situation, it seems that as business people we took for granted the ease with which we were able to communicate, meet and engage with our colleagues.
We are working hard to keep you safe; the simple things in life seem more meaningful now.
The health, safety, and welfare of all our clients have always been our greatest focus here at Lane End.
That is true now more than ever before as we move towards re-opening the Centre, hopefully in August, and consider the steps we are taking to ensure that everyone who comes onto our site will remain safe and comfortable.
Lane End welcomes Belinda Gardner to the management team as the new Sales & Marketing Manager. The appointment follows the departure of predecessor Heni Fourie, with a longterm tenure stretching more than a decade.
Mental Health Awareness Week is now underway (13-17 May 2019). It’s a cause close to our hearts here at Lane End Conference Centre, and a priority for many of our customers, too.
In a guest blog to mark the event, one of our current clients - Julie Watts from The Terence Watts BWRT® Institute – explains the importance of the Awareness Week to her organisation.
