Ironbridge to host late summer BBQ

The MGMW summer barbecue, a new event on the social calendar, is to be held at the Valley Hotel in the historic Ironbridge Gorge. The relaxed social lunch will take place on Sunday, September 17 and all MGMW members and their immediate family members are invited.

Ian Donaldson, MGMW chairman, said: “Members will be familiar with the Valley Hotel as we have used it on two of our industry days and always received very good service. The hotel is the perfect venue from which to explore the delights of Ironbridge and the River Severn.”

The MGMW has the exclusive use of the hotel for the day with a bar and terrace at our disposal. The plan is to meet for pre-lunch drinks from 12 noon, with lunch served from 1pm and drinks available until 4pm.

The cost of the lunch and arrival drinks will be met by MGMW but alcoholic drinks will need to be paid for separately at the hotel bar.

Members who are interested in attending should let Mark Slack know by September 3, with details of any guests and dietary requirements.
