Work starts on conference facility

14th November 2008

<p>The renovation of a conference facility in Frodsham, Cheshire will go ahead despite the continuing economic turmoil, it has been revealed.</p><p>According to the Chester Chronicle, the Church of England has given the go-ahead for work to start at its Foxhill site in Tarvin Road.</p><p>The £1 million project will transform the building into a venue suitable for large-scale conference events complete with technically-advanced audio-visual equipment.</p><p>At present, the meeting room used for conferences is deemed too small by <a href="" target="_self">event organisers</a> to be seen as a practical location, and as such action needed to be taken to ensure the facility remained a worthwhile venture.</p><p>One thing that already works in Foxhill's favour, though, is its location - it lies near the river Mersey in the middle of two hills.</p><p>This, and the hospitality of staff, means that visitors usually leave satisfied, warden Ian Cameron explained.</p><p>"We get comments left in our visitors' book that are wonderful to read and many marvellous letters from visitors saying how much they enjoyed their stay here," he told the newspaper.</p><p>Frodsham is five miles from Runcorn in the borough of Vale Royal and was mentioned in the Domesday Book.<img alt="ADNFCR-1753-ID-18878128-ADNFCR" src="" /></p>
