We can’t wait for October Half-Term here in Cornwall. The spooktacular will include free family activities at The Esplanade - from treasure hunts to magic, quizzes to kitchen creative, Courtney has a whole host of fun times planned.
Here we grill Courtney about herself, her starring role and a few of her favourite things.
Describe your role at The Esplanade
I’m a receptionist at the hotel, so you’ll see me behind the desk taking phone calls and helping guests who are staying in the hotel. I am also the children’s activity leader, so that means I get to play all sorts of games during the holidays, get messy and even get thrown in the pool!
Tell us something not many people know about you!
I am a first dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do, I got it a week before I turned 18 and I took me 5 years to get.
What is your favourite part of your job?
I get to spend every day in the holidays planning activities, playing games and making lots of new friends. I have the best job at The Esplanade!
What’s the wackiest thing that a child has made/done/said during your activities?
I had two girls join in the activities and they showed me how to play the game “Belly Blasters”. I did eventually try and ended up falling over, so I won’t be doing that one again!
What are you most looking forward to about October Half-Term?
All the party games we get to play for the Halloween party! I have all sorts of “tricks” up my sleeves.
What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?
My favourite thing about Halloween is dressing up and seeing what other people have dressed up as. And watching Hocus Pocus.
