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.

SMALL LUNCH MEET UPS IN NOVEMBER, BROOM HALL HOTEL

We hope that you and your family are keeping well. As we’ve not been able to have our lunches this year, we are going to try and do something a little different to enable our ladies to meet on a more informal basis . Our first series of meet ups will be at Broom Hall Country Hotel on Tuesday 3rd, Wednesday 4th, and Thursday 5th at 12.30 and they will be subject to guidelines in place at the time.

We are proposing a series of lunches, just one table per day, with one of us at each lunch. To book simply email us at info@waylandwomeninbusiness.co.uk which day you would like to come. Please note that you will be able to choose to from the venue’s menu on the day and pay on the day. This is on a first come first served basis but we will run a reserve list if needed. NB: any special offers will not be applicable to these bookings.

At the lunches please feel free to bring along any ideas concerning the way forward for WWIB as we all look to support each other over the coming months..
