Monkhouse Supports Rugby in Shrewsbury
Monkhouse Granary sponsors the U10 Rugby Team at Shrewsbury Rugby Club. The club were recently selected to play in a tournament at Leicester Tigers, Welford Road Stadium. New tops were produced for the game and it was a great day! For details of training times please visit www.shrewsburyrugbyclub.com/juniors
Peaceful, tranquil place – to meet and stay
Eaton Manor is the perfect place for directors or management teams to escape for a two or three night stay – for meetings, or team building. There are en-suite rooms for 19 guests on the site across a number of properties – a manor house, barn conversions and cottages; all within close proximity. Alternatively, if partners are invited, there is accommodation for up to 34, with additional accommodation nearby.
We felt that by working together, we could showcase what Shropshire has to offer and Eaton Manor is ideal for welcoming people to Shropshire that need accommodation in one place for the duration of a team event. Monkhouse Granary is the choice for day and evening meetings, where you do not need a bed too! They are different locations but with the same first class service and attention to detail – Special Shropshire Spaces.
