From allocating general maintenance tasks amongst the team to making sure the luxurious Y Spa is in tip top condition for our guests, Maintenance Supervisor, Lee Mogridge takes us through a typical day here at Wyboston Lakes.

A Typical day

I usually start work at around 6:30am, the first thing I do is turn on my emails and check our internal communication system to get some idea of how my day will start.

I then programme the day of work for the guys in each of our venues across site and then I head over to the Y Spa plant room, check the temperatures and the chemicals and make sure nothing has failed overnight.

At 7:15am I have a catch up with Mick Sandell, the Facilities Manager and at 8am I have a quick catch up with the rest of the team then it is all hands on deck.

All the team head over to the spa again to check everything is in working order before the spa opens and ensure that everything is perfect for when our spa guests arrive for the day.

At 1:45pm is lunch time and the team all sit together to enjoy lunch in the staff break out room.

In the afternoon we have a team catch up and discuss what has happened that morning, look at what needs to be done in the afternoon and provide a bit of a handover for the team member who starts in the afternoon.Lee Mogridge Maintenance Manager 2

Then I go to each venue and catch up with the team and find out the progress of their work, after that I head back to the office to work on tomorrow’s plans and catch up with emails. At 4:30pm I head home, ready to start another day.
