Wayland Women in Business is a networking group for ladies from all walks of life, whether running their own businesses, employed, seeking to find employment or retired. Our aim is to promote the importance of networking and making contacts in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There is no membership fee. We hold quarterly meetings with a guest speaker and a hot lunch and it has become a great social event.

OUR NEXT LUNCH - THURSDAY 30TH MARCH

Lois Gill

Our Spring lunch will be held on Thursday 30 March. We are thrilled that our speaker will be Lois Gill.

Lois is the Artistic Director of Blossom and Yarn who came up with the idea after deciding she wanted to do something a bit different for the church flower festival.  Lois is a keen gardener, florist artist, craftsman and national flower arranging teacher and judge, who’s vision was for the six churches in the Wayland group to collaborate on a creative project, involving others on their journey to make something really special.  This resulted in the first Blossom and Yarn in 2015, and the second event is taking place in July this year.
