A NEWLY taken over resort near Maldon is getting ready to open for all-inclusive guests...and is looking for new team members.

Potters Leisure Ltd announced in October it had bought the Five Lakes Resort in Tolleshunt Knights for an undisclosed sum.

At the time John Potter, owner of Potters Resorts, said: "Five Lakes is a sleeping giant that will become another jewel within Potters Resorts. 

"Its location is perfect for many of our existing guests and also opens up our unique short breaks offering to a wider London and South-East market. 

"I’m excited to welcome the Five Lakes team into the Potters Resorts family, and in turn, see them all welcoming our happy guests to Potters Five Lakes soon. 

"I am very grateful to the Bejerano family for entrusting Potters with the future of this fantastic asset they have created in the beautiful Essex countryside. 

"We are going to have a lot of fun expanding Potters Resorts and continuing to offer the best and only all-inclusive resorts in the UK."

The venue has joined Potters Resorts Hopton-on-Sea as the UK's second all inclusive resort.

Now Potters Five Lakes is ready to welcome guests for the launch of its all inclusive short breaks from May 2.
