Nifty Nicky is the general manager at happy Hanley and that’s who we’re chatting to today.
How long have you worked for us?
Not very long – only 20 months
How long have you been a manager?
25 years (mostly in the casino industry though)
What’s the best thing about your club?
My fabulous team and amazing customers – we’re one BIG family
What’s the most exciting thing that has happened while you’ve been a manager?
Travelling the world whilst working in the casino business and of course, joining Buzz Bingo and coming to Hanley
Why should people come to your club?
To be part of our ever-growing family at Hanley – everyone is special to all of us and we cherish every friendship we make
What are your favourite hobbies?
Art collecting, I love dogs too – Rottweilers and have bred some champions
Hamster sized hippo or hippo sized hamster?
Hamster sized hippo of course! That would be so cute! A hippo sized hamster would just be too frightening!!
What’s your biggest fear?
Injections!!! OMG – I’d rather do anything than have an injection!!
What’s your karaoke song?
Dancing Queen by Abba
What’s your hidden talent?
Cooking and baking – You should see the size of my husband – lol. He is 6 foot seven inches so a big guy anyway but I’m filling him out slowly and he definitely takes some feeding!! Lol
If you could be on any TV show what would it be and why?
‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ because I want to jump out of a plane although I think the camp would go very hungry if I was selected for challenges though as I’m not keen on snakes, spiders, bugs, rats and I definitely wouldn’t do the eating challenge! OMG – I’d always pick the ‘other’ plate!! Lol
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
The Tudors – I love history so it would be a toss-up between the Tudors or ancient Egypt – I’m equally passionate about that era too!
Anything else you’d like to add?
Sending you ALL a virtual hug. Keep safe everyone and look after yourselves – I hope to see you all really soon – my world wouldn’t be the same without each and every one of you!!
Thanks for answering our questions, Nicky. We’ll help taste test those bakes if your husband ever passes on any.
