Miserable weather outside, cheerful people inside. Good numbers gave both the pre meeting networking and the meeting itself a buzz.
A new month, a new year and a new positive approach from all of our members as we sat down to our usual high-quality breakfast and then kicked off what was a typically good-humoured and positive meeting.
A summary of our EBF Christmas party where some 27 brave souls turned out in various states of sartorial elegance.
Oh what joy! The EBF Christmas Festivities started from 6am onwards as members started arriving dressed in their fun Christmas wear, be it Pullovers, T Shirts or full blown Suits and Ties. Paul enlisted Jill Willis and one or two others to serenade new arrivals with Christmas Carols. Rob Newson arrived in good time to commence his duties as Magician.
A gloomy and windy morning was turned into a glowing warm and interesting experience simply by being a member of EBF and turning up for our Thursday meeting.
An entertaining and friendly meeting as we settle nicely into our new venue. Plenty of new referral opportunities shared and new member induction next week.
Our first meeting proper at Calcott Hall Farm both from a good layout of tables by them in readiness for us, an excellent breakfast with options and a very successful meeting with 21 members and 2 visitors both Asbestos Consultants from the same company.
Our last meeting at Mary Green Manor was rewarded with 26 bodies present 24 Members and 2 visitors, Alexandra Maher and Anna Cooper. With a full room the meeting positively throbbed, it’s nice to finish on a high note.
A well-attended trial meeting at a possible new venue for EBF – Calcott Hall Farm’s “Barnyard Cafe”. Excellent meeting with plenty of members and lots of business shared. Fabulous breakfast too.
Back at MGM where breakfast was as good as usual and 18 of us were busily networking with each other.
