A door from Saudi Arabia – in Chipping Sodbury!
Jimmy Cricket encountered an unusual hotel door during his stay in south Gloucestershire for the 2014 Chipping Sodbury Festival.
The famous entertainer was one of the featured performers for this year’s festival at Chipping Sodbury’s impressive Town Hall.
The organisers of the festival also arranged for Jimmy and his wife, May, to stay overnight at the nearby Moda House Hotel on the High Street in the market town.
Hotel owners Jo and Duncan have a door which is their pride and joy because it has been shipped over from Saudi Arabia. In fact, it cost more for the door to be shipped over to England than for the item itself!
So why the fascination with this attractive feature located within the hotel dining room? Well, Duncan was a hotel manager in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, so the door is a keepsake for both him and his wife to remember their time in the country.
