Casa Hotel hosts recent Derbyshire County Council meeting

Chesterfield’s Casa Hotel played host to the Derbyshire County Council meeting as the authority’s Matlock HQ was not big enough to provide social distancing in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The meeting was the council’s first in-person meeting for a year, with the pandemic pushing meetings on to virtual platforms, such as Microsoft Teams.

Central government opted not to extend emergency legislation allowing councils to hold meetings online during the pandemic on May 7th. The council subsequently required space for the meeting to be held where members could be physically present.

Steve Perez, who owns Casa Hotel, Peak Edge Hotel and Global Brands stated: “It was a pleasure to host the first council meeting post pandemic, we are delighted to have been chosen to host the event. We are especially grateful for the business which successfully enabled further team members to return to work and off the government furlough scheme. We are an idyllic venue for social distanced events, with complimentary parking, capacity of up to 100 with social distancing and a range of function suites to choose from.”

Casa have supported the NHS with complimentary bedrooms, played host to the COVID vaccine centre, offered a complimentary dining service for employees of Chesterfield Royal Hospital enabling workers to enjoy freshly cooked, locally sourced meals and in addition supplied a delivery of Franklin & Sons’, Mango Go Natural Energy Drinks from Global Brands, which is also located within Casa, Chesterfield.

Casa Hotel supports the marketing and economic growth of the town through Chesterfield Champions, a network of over 180 organisations across Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.
