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 Christmas lunch will be held at Broom Hall Hotel, and is entitled “Paris - Sydney – Watton”

We will welcome Kyla Sørensen who is currently the curate at St. Mary’s Parish Church Watton but has lived in the town for two years now. She has led a varied life - from a young age studying and later working around the world, and living in a multi cultural home. She will recount some of her more interesting stories and reflections (some funny, some not so much) on her journey towards ordination in the church.
