The beautiful Stanneylands Hotel, between Wilmslow and Styal, was the venue for a Moxie brunch mingle on 20 October. Aside from the undoubtedly beautiful building – with many visibly original features – the surroundings, including 4 acres of mature woods, are absolutely stunning.
The pleasant surroundings continue inside, too. We were warmly greeted and shown to a dazzling array of brunch buffet items – a platter of delectable fresh fruit, delicious pastries, warm bread and mouth-watering hot breakfast items. Fresh coffee and every kind of tea imaginable were also laid on for us.
We sat in the bright and airy dining room, looked after by Mike, the general manager and his team – nothing was too much trouble and many of us are very tempted to return to the Stanneylands at the earliest opportunity. Talking of which, they’re closing after Christmas for what looks to be an incredible £1.2 million makeover – Moxie very much hope to arrange another Mingle in the Spring to see the results!
As always, we were joined by several new faces – almost ALL of whom Wendy managed to name first time – along with the recent and the more established regulars. The relaxed chatter was apparent from the start, and despite sitting for brunch, everyone managed to move happily around the room to make new connections and chat with old friends. If only ALL networking groups were like this!
It’s not too soon for planning festive activities, either. Moxie’s Jingle Mingle is at the Alderley Edge Hotel this year on 24 November 7pm til late – think of it as the works’ Christmas Do for the self-employed!
Starting with Mulled Wine or Hot Cider on arrival with a choice of canapés
& Paul Hazelby from Pink Banana will be DJ for the evening and doing some fabulous magic too!
This is a time to kick back and relax whilst still networking, a fun filled party night! Perfect for those who are self employed with no office Christmas party to look forward to, great for small businesses taking the stress out of organising your party or anyone else that fancies mingling with Moxie. Grab your work colleagues, friends and partners
Tickets are only £15 per person or if you book for 2 people it’s £25
Alderley Edge Hotel are also giving a special room rate for Bed and Breakfast of £75 for a single room or £99 for a double room so you can make a real night of it!
