Added to which, their appointed caterers and also bestofnewbury business member, Rosemary and Thyme Catering, provided some exceptionally delicious canapes.
The combination of freeform networking, words of wisdom from some interesting and informative guest speakers (and bestofnewbury business members), Nigel Morgan (Morgan PR) and Miriam McCallum (McCallum Associates) plus terrific light entertainment from Jan Jack (Laughterhouse), proved to be an effective, fun and popular format. Needless to say, a glass of wine or two after a hard day of work was a welcome addition!
