What a delightful early morning business networking event we had today. Even though the children were on school holidays our event was well attended and we were very pleased to see some new businesses attending.
Melanie Morgan from HWGTA was our business speaker of the month and gave us an insight into her journey from a teenager to her job at HWGTA. Melanie also shared with us her passion for making cakes and much to everyone's delight we were invited to give them a try. There was also a selection of gluten free mince pies to hand.
At our last networking event Melanie had offered to donate a Christmas cake for us to raffle at today's event in support of Megan Baker House. We are very pleased to say we raised a total of £103.00. We will present MBH with a cheque at a later date.
We then invited Michael to pull out the winning raffle ticket for the Christmas cake and the very lucky winner was Liz Hill from Rural Concierge Herefordshire
Melanie then pulled out the business card from the pot and announced who would be in the spotlight at our next networking event. This will be Zoe Ferriday from HFT Forklifts who supply businesses with handling solutions 24 hours a day.
Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who attended today and it was lovely to see some new businesses. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Thursday 27th November. This will be our last event of 2014.
We will resume our networking events in January - watch this space.
