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 Spring lunch will be held at Broom Hall from on Wednesday 7th March from 2.00-2.00pm.  Our guest speaker will be one of our regular attendees, Katharine Wolstenholme from College Farm (talk rescheduled from christmas). College Farm Bed & Breakfast was started in the 1970s by Katharine’s parents, William & Lavender Garnier. When William retired from the army they returned to Norfolk and settled in Thompson, the village next to Merton where Lavender’s family has lived since 1300.

Katharine ran Telford Park B&B in south London for over 20 years. After Lavender's death in 2010 Katharine and her family moved to Thompson and now run College Farm Bed & Breakfast. In 2014 Katharine developed her business at College Farm by diversifying into the weddings market. She now hosts up to 10 weddings a year and College Farm has quickly established a reputation as one of Norfolk's loveliest and relaxed country venues complete with alpacas!
