Hospitality Suite looks back to the Gay Meadow

The Sovereign Suite at Shrewsbury Town's Greenhous Meadow has a fresh new look ahead of the start of the new season with a nod to the club and town of Shrewsbury's past.
A collection of victorian pictures now adorn the suite depicting classic scenes connected to the old Gay Meadow ground.
Four black and white images were commisioned, among them familar views from yesteryear near the Gay Meadow.
There's a picture of Abbey Foregate approaching the Column, a view of the English Bridge with the town centre as a backdrop and the familar view which supporters who used to sit in the centre stand at Gay Meadow would have been used to with of the Royal Salop Infirmary which later became the Parade Shopping Centre.
There is also a map of the immediate area around the Gay Meadow which is sure to become a topic for discussion from people who use the Sovereign Suite in the future.
"It's given the Sovereign Suite a new look," said Andrew Bunton, Shrewsbury Town's hospitality manager. "Whether using the whole room or a divided portion, the pictures add a stylish air without detracting from events, be they conferences, private meetings and gala diners for up to 350 guests."
The Sovereign Suite has become one of the most sought after venues in Shropshire, with Shrewsbury Town developing an impressive reputation for their catering and hospitality.
