Rest in peace, dear Jacquie!

We write with sadness to inform friends, customers and colleagues that Jacqueline Fleming – Jacquie to all of us – has passed away after a short illness. She retired from Meikles Hotel in 2016 after 44 years’ service and was one of the most remarkable people in the hotel’s 100-year history. She won the Zimbabwe Council for Tourism’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015, the citation for which commended her for not only being a consummate professional but also for inspiring and mentoring so many newcomers to the hospitality profession over her entire career, especially, of course, in latter years.
Details of the memorial service will be advised in due course. Rest in peace, dear Jacquie!
