Successful Spring Lunch at Shaw Country Hotel, Shaw – Saturday 6th April 2019

The WRFA Spring Lunch held on 6th April at the Shaw Country Hotel was much enjoyed by everyone attending.  The dining took place in the Garden Room and the standard of cuisine and service was so good that those attending are urging repeat bookings at the hotel.  In fact, strong representations have been made to switch the WRFA Christmas Lunch from The Bear Hotel to The Shaw Country Hotel.  This is being given serious consideration.
