84 Squadron Association Centenary Celebration Reunion

29/30 September 2017.

It has been decided to hold the 2017 reunion at The Albrighton Hall Hotel and Spa. The hotel is four miles north of Shrewsbury on the A528. Many of you will know of this hotel because of its proximity to RAF Shawbury.

There is a bus service into Shrewsbury which runs about every hour and a taxi will cost about 5-00p from Shrewsbury railway station at the time of going to press. The bus service in the opposite direction terminates at Ellesmere which is known as Shropshire’s Lake District.

Details of the hotel can be found at http://www.mercure.com/gb/hotel-6629-mercure-shrewsbury-albrighton-hall-hotel-and-spa/index.shtml

The hotel is set in extensive gardens with a lake. It is a four star hotel and a visit there will confirm that the event rooms and accommodation are of a good standard. We will be using the Lakeside Room for the Saturday evening.

The price that has been negotiated is 73-00p per person, per night, DB&B. a modest increase of 5 over last year’s price.

This price also includes use of the spa facilities. There is a very pleasant 10m x 8m swimming pool, Jacuzzi and well equipped gym. Also there are various beauty and therapy treatments available. Should anybody wish to take advantage of these they need to be booked in advance and will attract a 20% discount for our members and guests.

What we would like you to do this year is book as early as possible so that the hotel has confidence that we will turn up in sufficient numbers to warrant our discounted rate.

Please book directly with the hotel (Tel 01939 291000) stating reference 84 Squadron reunion to get the discount. You cannot get the discount by booking online.

When you book please tell the hotel about any dietary requirements. Also please point out to them if you have any mobility problems. Some of the accommodation is a short (less than 100 metres) walk from the hotel entrance.

If you have any questions or suggestions please email derek966@gmail.com or telephone 01902 441153.
