Ontario Hotel, The Farrier in Cayton, Apologize Over Easter-Themed Hamper Gift


Ahead of the Easter celebrations, a hotel in Ontario, The Farrier in Cayton, made a hamper they described as the 'Holy Grail of Hampers'. The hotel which won Channel 4's Four in A Bed is owned by a mother and her daughter, Suzie and Danie Bushby. The hamper had an Easter-theme which had features such as ‘Passion of the Christ Cheesecake’, ‘The Breaking of the Bread’, and ‘Twice Resurrected Souffle Tart’. 

However, Rev Andrew Moreland, who is a vicar, was displeased with the actions of the hotel for using themes such as 'Passion of the Christ Cheesecake' for its food offers this period. 

According to the vicar, some of the words in the offer were offensive. He sent message to Suzie and Dani Bushby who apologized for their actions.

The family hotel released a statement on Facebook, informing its followers that its decision to 'be an asset' to the local village had been misunderstood. Below is an excerpt of the statement.

‘'We would like to apologise unreservedly if we have inadvertently offended anyone. We would like to state that any reference to Easter, in religious terms, was intended in an honourable sense and not to disrespect any event, belief or faith.

'’We are saddened that despite our best efforts to be an asset to our village in a respectful and meaningful way, that our attempts have been misconstrued. We are now working with The Reverend to 're-word' our offering. Please be assured that the 'food element' of the hamper will remain unchanged. We would like to thank all our customers for their support during this very challenging time for us all.'’
