Hi! My name is Izzy Grey and I love experiencing anything related to Lifestyle in and around my lovely home of Chester and Cheshire. I have been working in the hospitality industry for 20 years (I know, I don’t look it – it should be much longer!) and spent 10 of those years in London having an amazing time.
I have launched 20 venues in my career and now specialise in Venue launches – but will probably need to consider hanging up my clogs quite soon as launching Venues is an exhausting business and I would now much prefer to enjoy eating, drinking, staying and ‘experiencing’ – rather than working those gruelling 16 hour days …
Needless to say however that I have enjoyed an incredible career (so far) and have now decided to document my experiences in this Lifestyle blog. I will be writing about all that is great in Chester and Cheshire (I’ll never publish anything if it’s not positive – I just won’t write about it) including health, beauty, food, drink, bedrooms and even clothes and jewellery – so if you’re interested in good times and nice things, please keep reading.
I currently head up the Commercial, Events and Marketing side of The Chester Fields Country Pub & Restaurant in Mickle Trafford (just outside Chester city centre) which launched end November 2011 … so I will write about this from time to time, simply because I’m totally in love with it ! The food is delicious and the ambience is so cosy and unique. And I do love to visit other places with family and friends, so please feel free to make any suggestions.
I also do quite a bit of work for Chester.com and if you haven’t visited this site then please do, it’s a very useful portal into how diverse our city is and how much creativity and effort goes into making Chester the fabulous city it is – a celebration to the independents !
I’m really looking forward to hearing from you and thanks for listening, Izzy x
