UK: The first management appointments have been announced at the Fleece hotel in Richmond, North Yorkshire

The Fleece hotel in Richmond, North Yorkshire has announced three managerial appointments ahead of its April launch.

Jill Loughborough has been appointed hotel manager, whilst Ayrton Westwood has been named as deputy manager. Thomas Pickard will take on the role of head chef. The new team will begin on Monday 19 February ahead of the Grade II-listed property's reopening as a 10-bedroom luxury hotel.

The hotel has undergone major redevelopment by Richmond-based Within Reach Developments. York-based Great Potential has been appointed to operate the hotel.

The property was built in 1897 as a 22-bedroom hotel. It has operated as a pub and nightclub for the last 30 years. Within Reach acquired the property from Stonegate Pub Company in 2016 off a guide price of £250,000.

Peter Coulson, managing director of Within Reach Developments, said: "Our ambition since acquisition is for the Fleece hotel, as a totally redeveloped Victorian hotel, to deliver the best in comfort, high-spec bedrooms, quality restaurant, café-bar and lounge, in luxuriously furnished surroundings and with top-class personal service."
