Gaye hangs up her tap shoes

Gaye Hayes, our much loved Reception Manager, retires on October 31st 2008 after 10 years of exceptional service at the Hall. Before joining us at the Hall, she led a colourful life pursuing her passion for dance, in the West End and on screen alongside Household names like Van Johnson, Tommy Steele, Elizabeth Taylor and Dennis Waterman.

Gaye’s mum Molly spotted her passion at the tender age of 4 when she couldn’t stop her dancing and at just 12 years of age she moved from home in Morecambe to attend the Corona Stage Academy in London using the stage name “Gaye Lindsey”. Closer to home she couldn’t stay away from the bright lights and went on to become a Pontins Blue Coat at the Middleton Sands Holiday Camp in Morecambe (Embassy or Castella anyone?).


We can’t believe she’s taking early retirement this year  and would love to give her the best send off possible as a thank-you from the owners.
