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 There is no charge for entrance.

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.

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.

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.
