In brief

Sale secured

Nigel Messenger, the former managing director of Securicor Hotels, has bought the 21-bedroom Downfield Hotel in Stroud, Gloucestershire, from owners Duncan and Susan Spandler. It was sold through Christie & Co off a £375,000 asking price. Securicor ran three hotels in London and Coventry before selling them this year.

Island in the sun

The only hotel on the Argyll island of Colonsay has been sold. The 11-bedroom Isle of Colonsay hotel fetched close to the asking price of around £350,000, said agent Robert Barry. New owners are Christine and Claude Reysenn, lately at the Old Hall Hotel in Sandbach, Cheshire.

CCC gets CDCOK

Customised Contract Catering (CCC) has signed a four-year deal with Buckinghamshire's Chiltern District Council to manage the catering at three leisure complexes. The contract will turn over £200,000 a year. CCC was formed last year by the merger of rivals MDA and Aspen.
