The Admirable Crichton cuts back staff to prepare for economic downturn

The Admirable Crichton made seven redundancies within its support staff at the end of last year, in preparation for what could be a period of widespread economic turbulence.

"These are uncertain times and no one has a clue what is going on," said The Admirable Crichton co-owner Johnny Roxburgh.

"We sat down in October and looked ahead to the new year, and decided it was the best time to make cuts and that we did have too many staff. It was the most hideous thing I have had to do and never want to go through that again."

Roxburgh said there are no plans to make any more redundancies. He is currently looking for a new chef because 2009 has been busy, with February set to be busier than last year.

The Admirable Crichton currently has 38 staff within its main office.
