                                              Our 50th birthday is fast approaching!


                                                                                                                                 50
     2011 will be a year of celebration for all at Moor Hall as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of private
     ownership by the Webb family. It was way back in 1961 when Michael Webb bought Moor Hall and made
     the decision to go into the hotel business. At that time there were only 17 bedrooms (just 3 ensuite) and
     over the following 50 years Michael and his family have transformed Moor Hall into the prestigious 4 star
     country house hotel that we all know and love.
                                                                                                                   BEST WESTERN PREMIER
     We have lots of plans for our 50th celebrations which will last throughout 2011, and one of these is to
     create a timeline of Moor Hall over the years, complete with memories and anecdotes from customers.       MOOR HALL HOTEL & SPA
     Maybe you remember coming to Moor Hall’s live music events in the 60s, or to the discos in the 70s,               1961 - 2011
     perhaps you have a copy of an old menu hidden somewhere - whatever it is, we would like to see it! We
     will of course take great care of any photos or documents, and will copy and return them to you quickly.

couple were married in 1966, and 39 years later, in 2005, attended their
daughter’s wedding reception, also at Moor Hall, and another couple who
were married in 1969 have since been back to the hotel to celebrate both
their 30th and 40th wedding anniversaries.
Angela Burns, Chief Executive of Webb Hotels & Travel, said: “We are
delighted that so many local people have such fond memories of their
wedding celebrations at Moor Hall. It was fascinating to hear the couples’
stories and to see their photos, and also lovely to know that their
association with the hotel has continued over the years. We are very proud
of Moor Hall’s long-standing reputation as one of the leading wedding
venues in the area.”                                                                                                                 Moor Hall’s green team

 Teenage Cancer Trust
 Moor Hall’s chosen charity for 2009 was the Teenage Cancer Trust West Midlands Appeal, and in
 November we were delighted to be able to present a cheque for £5,000 to Heather Burns-Mace,
 Regional Fundraising Manager for the charity.
 The Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults
 with cancer by raising funds to build desperately needed teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals which
 combine the best possible care and professional support in an environment tailored to their needs.
 Heather Burns-Mace said: “We are thrilled that Moor Hall has chosen the Teenage Cancer Trust as
 their nominated charity. In the West Midlands we are in a unique position in the country with a unit
 for 18 to 24 year olds at the University Hospital in Birmingham, a unit under development at the Royal
 Orthopaedic for bone cancers and a new unit shortly to open for 13 to 18 year olds at Birmingham’s
 Children’s Hospital. The generous donation from Moor Hall and its guests will go towards
 providing the latest entertainment systems at the Children’s Hospital unit with large plasma TVs,
 computer games and the all important laptops and Wi-Fi connection. This will help us to make sure that    Angela Burns, Chief Executive and Michael Webb,
 young people from the West Midlands can remain teenagers first and cancer patients second.”               Chairman, of Webb Hotels & Travel with Heather

     Our Long Service Award Winners
 In 2009, 23 members of staff at the companies within the Webb Hotels
 & Travel group clocked up a total of 140 years of service between them,
 spanning between 5 and 25 years.
 At a lunch and dinner held at Moor Hall, Michael Webb, Chairman of Webb
 Hotels & Travel, presented the employees who had reached 5, 10,
 15, 20 and 25 years of service with their awards. The long service
 presentation is an annual event, honouring employees who reach the
 different milestones each year, and the 2009 recipients add to the
 hundreds of years of service that have already been achieved by other staff.
