Room Hire at Discovery Centre

The staff at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre have carried out a review of their room hire offer in light of feedback from visitors. The building has a selection of rooms available to hire for group meetings, parties, conferences or get-togethers. Their facilities offer something a bit different - escape to the countryside to get more out of your meetings, hold your club gathering here and get the benefit of the cafe and meadows instead of just a room. The modern, light and airy rooms can also be complemented by tasty refreshments from the cafe.

The team can also organise work away days and corporate volunteering events with meeting facilities included. The Centre was recently visited by Colas Rail who kindly donated a team of workers to improve the Centre’s car park as well as making the steps down to the river more accessible for the regular dog walkers and community visitors to the meadows. 
The building has two main rooms which can accommodate up to 22 people board room style or 30 theatre style and a smaller, more intimate space for groups of up to 5 people. Their award winning cafe is also available by special arrangement and can accommodate a total of 70 people cafe style. Visitors can also make use of the outside space, the Onny Meadows with marquees for special events.

Grant Wilson, Centre Manager, says “We have been listening to our visitors and they have been feeding back to us that funds for room hire are smaller than ever in our current financial climate. We continually aim to be accessible for everyone and the review of our offer is in light of this.”
