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.


We have set the date for our Christmas lunch! This year it will take place on Thursday 7th December at Broom Hall Hotel from 12.00 until 2.00. As always we will have a special menu which includes a turkey lunch with all the trimmings! You will also have the chance to buy Christmas gifts from some of our lovely members. We are thrilled that our speaker will be local B&B and wedding venue owner Katharine Wolstenholme.
