On Thursday 13th of February, The Rock Garden at the Fermain Valley Hotel played host, to the ever-popular February Drinks and Networking Evening. With an impressive turn-out (considering it was a very windy and rainy evening!) of familiar faces and some new attendees, we enjoyed a selection of canapes and a lethal welcome cocktail!
Current President Liz Hodder addressed the audience and outlined the events of the previous year, before Vice-President Gill Mabbett spoke about the upcoming events, which include the launch of the 2014 Bill Green Award for local companies displaying entrepreneurial spirit and the Annual Summer Ball, which will be held on 20th of June at St Pierre Park Hotel with an “All That Glitters” theme.
A good time was had by all and we even welcomed YBG’s youngest-ever attendee, the lovely two-week old baby daughter of Simon and Melissa Campbell, who was nonplussed by all the activity and spent the evening asleep in the corner!
