Pendley Manor Spa and Conference Centre, in Tring, Hertfordshire – an excellent and highly recommended venue that I’ve visited many times, both as a delegate and as a trainer – has just published the following special offer for weddings there: ‘For every ten guests booked on our Opal Package, one guest goes free!’


Comment: I had no idea that kidnapping formed part of the modern day wedding – but it’s good news that one in ten of those affected will be released. Perhaps it brings a new meaning – and image – to the word ‘wedlock’.
