AGM weekend, the full details
The weekend begins at mid-day on Saturday 24th and after a quick welcome and lunch, coaches will leave the hotel for selected museums. Since the museums close at 4pm in the winter, and one in particular is weather dependent, we have chosen the following options:
Good weather (i.e. not raining and reasonably bright) – Blists Hill Victorian Village is a must
Poor Weather, (i.e. likelihood of rain and dull) – visit to the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron or a visit to the Coalport China Factory Museum
After each visit, the coach will drive to Ironbridge village where you will alight to view the Bridge and Toll House. A small charge of approx £5 will be collected by the MOA for entry into the museums.
RAF Cosford is also local to the hotel, so if there is sufficient interest a coach will be arranged to transport members for the afternoon. This museum also closes at 4pm in the winter so it will leave the hotel promptly at 12.30. If you are interested in visiting Cosford, please tick the box, but also select an optional museum in case there are insufficient numbers. There is no charge for entrance to RAF Cosford.
On return to the Hotel you will have time to go to your rooms and then join the group for a social evening and dinner. The cost of the dinner is included in the cost of the overnight room, or can be paid separately if you live locally and do not wish to stay at the hotel.
Special rates have been negotiated for the hotel, and this includes an extended stay including the Friday and Sunday nights if you wish to see more of the museums. In which case special reduced price winter tickets are available for all the museums. If you intend to stay at the hotel for longer than the Saturday night, please tick the relevant boxes on the attendance form. Although you will need to book you room directly with the hotel, it is useful to know how many people will be staying so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
The Sunday morning will be a leisurely start with breakfast, and guests will then be asked to gather from 1000 in the Coalport Suite for tea, coffee and biscuits. The MOA Annual General Meeting will begin at 11.00am, followed by the annual Prize Giving and Awards. There will then be a short break and the luncheon will begin at 1pm. Between the main course and desert we have arranged a speaker from the Ironbridge Trust to talk to us on the history and development of the region. After the luncheon, members will be fee to stay and talk to other members and colleagues, or leave for home.
The cost of the luncheon, including all beverages, will be £25 and you will be asked to pay this as you complete the attendance application form. After the AGM and Awards, there will be a break and the cash bar will be open.
The format of the weekend follows that of previous years and has been welcomed by all who attended, so we expect it to be an enjoyable and informative weekend. Please try to come, you will have a lot of fun.
