Hello, my name is Beth Merriott and I’m the administrator for Roadford Lake Activity Centre which is based between Okehampton and Launceston. I’ve been working for SW Lakes since March 2019.

You’ll mainly find me in the office but I do try to get out and about around site to greet customers and check the facilities. I appreciate a nice steady paddle across the lake with the team on a summers evening to unwind after a busy day and of course to take in the beautiful lake views.

My job includes; managing bookings, answering enquires, planning for the season, updating social media, marketing and promotions

In my spare time, I love spending time with my animals; my dog Rupert and my horses. I enjoy baking which I often bring in for the team to enjoy!
