The Red House, Ripon

Who said romance is dead?

On Valentine’s day this year, Keith, The Red House’s 6’2” ex-military handyman, collected all the owners’ rubbish as normal and left a single red rose outside the door of the apartments for all the ladies. He also snuck into the kitchen and left a rose for the Chef and the Duty Manager. Of course, he denied any such activity at all and has kept up the pretence from then onwards.

On the following Friday, after he had done his duties, General Manager Kevan Pick asked him to join the owners for “Fish Fryday” where he was applauded by everyone and served a scrumptious lunch by management. Needless to say, despite his continued denial of responsibility for this romantic act of kindness, he was very touched and enjoyed his unexpected feast.
