The 2011 Mark Ladies Festival Weekend was held at The Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon from Friday 15 April to Sunday 17 April. The hotel, set in 21 acres of beautiful countryside, proved to be a delightful new venue for us situated just 5 minutes from the centre of historic Stratford-upon-Avon. Many found the leisure centre with pool and fitness facilities the perfect place to relax and unwind after visiting Stratford, Warwick or any one of the wealth of nearby interesting venues in the surrounding area.
The President, VW Bro Richard Turpin, and his wife Doris would like to thank all who attended for their support and for their encouragement in taking the decision to move to a new venue which, by all accounts, was appreciated by all who came along. The standard of the hotel and catering was first class and, thanks to the effort put in by Rick and Gill Bott in taking on most of the administration, were outstanding value for money. It was a pity that some who had hoped to come were unable to be accommodated at the Festival rate but, given the uncertainties of the potential support in the early days, it was difficult to estimate how many rooms we could guarantee taking up.
Watch this space for the announcement of the 2012 event and, to avoid disappointment, get your bookings in early.
