Midlands Wales and South West region meeting review
No ordinary meeting, this was a sumptuous medieval banquet at Coombe Abbey. Following the spectacular Summer Ball held at Coombe Abbey in June the G.M. Mr Terry offered to sponsor the October meeting by way of a medieval banquet.
Attendees dressed in keeping with the medieval theme and Nigel Smith of Mattisons Beds and his beautiful wife Serena were appointed Baron and Baroness for the evening.
The evening commenced with drinks on arrival, followed by networking, the amazing banquet, themed entertainment and a raffle. Many stayed overnight and enjoyed the best of historic accommodation at Coombe Abbey and further hospitality.
Built in the 12th century as a monastery Coombe Abbey is as spooky and as haunted as you would expect it to be. The Abbey is set in magnificent grounds and is full of history it boasts wonderful facilities with stunning accommodation. Amazing deals can be secured and for those who enjoy the paranormal packages complete with tours and stories of past inhabitants and their practices are available.
