New face at the County Ground heads up wedding team
Somerset County Cricket Club are delighted to be able to welcome a new face to our Catering Team.
Sophie Cridland has joined as Deputy Catering Manager but is no stranger to the County Ground. “I actually worked as a casual member of the catering team a few years ago,” she said. “I still have fond memories of that time so I’m really happy to be back.”
After completing her initial spell with the Club Sophie secured a full time position as a wedding co-ordinator at a leading wedding venue. Following on from this she worked for a number of years in the hotel industry as an Assistant Manager and a Front of House and Events Manager which she believes will stand her in good stead as she explains: “Since I last worked at the County Ground I have gained a wealth of experience in the Wedding and Conference & Events industries and I’m looking forward to bringing that knowledge to the team.
“I’m really pleased to be back at Somerset County Cricket Club and I look forward to helping to ensure that all of our clients and customers get to experience the outstanding level of service that we have to offer”
Catering General Manager Sam Safe said: “We are always keen to employ staff who can bring experience to our excellent team. As a Club we pride ourselves on the standard of service that we deliver to all of our customers and Sophie’s experience and drive will certainly see her fit in well with what we are looking to achieve.
“With the new Somerset Pavilion set to be officially opened later this month, we are looking to diversify our Conference & Events delivery. With this in mind we are currently focusing on weddings and this is where Sophie comes in. The County Ground is the perfect venue for a wedding reception and we have a large variety of packages available to suit all tastes and budgets.”
