Hold your Corporate Event at Wollaston Lodge
A TYPICAL EVENT DAY
Wollaston Lodge hosted Midland based MSM for their Management Conference. Delegates were met with bacon rolls before settling in to their morning session held under the bright light of the Orangery. Tea, coffee and biscuits were on tap all morning. The Group was able to split into three sub groups for different discussions using different lounges. We organised an outdoor activity of three legged football to break the day up and provide some fresh air followed by a lunch of homemade soups, Butternut Squash and Peanut Butter, Pea and Mint with lardons and Carrot and Artichoke, all served with rounds of coronation chicken, cheese and pickle and brie, avocado and bacon sandwiches. Meetings continued on throughout the afternoon interspersed with tea, coffee, home made scones and home made Victoria sponge. At the wrapping up drinks were served and an industry related quiz was played.
Everyone got changed and ready for dinner which kicked off with fizz and canapés. Dinner was beetroot and goats cheese risotto followed by a choice of Beef Wellington or salmon en croute with ginger. Desert was a trio of White Chocolate Torte, Raspberry Cheesecake and Chocolate brownies, all home made of course.
Our guests stayed up until the early hours and despite enjoying themselves very much were up bright and breezy for the next day with everyone enjoying a full Shropshire breakfast after a good night's sleep. The meetings wrapped up a little before midday. A productive and enjoyable time was had by all. The feedback we got was very positive. We were told that the whole event was very productive as it took the staff out of their normal environment but that Wollaston was sufficiently relaxed and informal to get the most from everyone. Sandy and I certainly enjoyed the whole event and look forward to more companies coming to enjoy everything that Wollaston has to offer.
DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
Below is a review from the MD of SMS which he kindly placed on Tripadvisor:
We were looking for a suitable venue to host a team of 10 for 'away day' meetings, meals and accommodation and the Wollaston Lodge was just perfect. The Orangery was the main meeting point to both meet and eat changing subtlety throughout the day, as a meeting room it was bright and large enough for 10 people to meet against a backdrop of stunning countryside and in the evening we dined under the stars.
The property has two spacious lounges used for smaller group meetings and as 4 of our group lived locally 6 were accommodated in a range of well equipped and stylish bedrooms throughout the grand House. We were even able to take advantage of the grounds for some healthy 'outdoor team building' due to the weather! Grant and Sandy were excellent hosts assisting us all throughout the business day and our stay with the most amazing food, from a bacon sandwich on arrival to homemade nibbles through the day and an outstanding evening meal just the positive 'experience' you want to provide your team with.
We would certainly recommend Wollaston Lodge for any corporate occasion and would personally like to return for a relaxing break with my wife. Thank you Grant and Sandy.
