Getting down to business

Are you an East Midlands business owner looking to promote what it is you do?

Or perhaps you’re looking for an opportunity to meet up with some of those business owners to find out what they might be able to offer you?

If the answer to either of those questions is yes, this Sunday‘s guest on Girls Around Town has news of an upcoming event you’ll definitely want to hear about.

Taking place on Wednesday 27 April at Arena UK in Allington near Grantham, The Big Business Event is the first joint venture between Hannah Thompson of The Development Partner Network and Queen Bee & Co‘s Deborah Firmstone.

And it’s Hannah who’ll be joining June live in the studio in the second hour of this weekend’s show to share details of the event, which aims to bring businesses together from across the area, providing a forum for excellent networking opportunities.

Passionate about helping local businesses to grow, both Hannah and Debbie run their own individual networking events, seeing them as an extremely powerful marketing tool for building relationships with other businesses and also gaining potential new clients and suppliers.

And they can’t wait to welcome exhibitors and visitors alike to this one!

Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best on 107.8FM, on the apps or online to hear Hannah chatting to June about the event on the show – but if you don’t want to miss the boat when it comes to booking a stand or a visitor ticket, why not get down get to business right away?

Putting health and wellness at the top of the agenda

It’s all about networking again this weekend, when Johanna Thompson and Kayleigh Langley join the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events they organise for people working in the health and wellness industry.

They’ll be sharing details of the Wellness Network‘s regularly monthly meetings, currently held in Lincoln and Grantham, which bring together like-minded professionals to share best practice, make new contacts and create collaborations.

There’ll be news too of their plans to expand the group’s activities to other locations, a look back at some of the special events that have taken place recently and a look ahead to one on the cards for Sunday 8 September.

The Grantham Health & Wellness Show at the Urban Hotel runs from 11am till 3pm and visitors can take their pick from no fewer than 10 short talks on popular topics such as the facts and fiction of the menopause, green beauty, reflexology and how a boudoir shoot can help boost your confidence.

With various demonstrations on the programme, a range of stands to browse around and the opportunity to try different exercise classes, there’s something for everyone at this free event. And there’s even a goody bag for the first 100 people who register!

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all the details from Johanna and Kayleigh. In the meantime, you’ll find more information about the talks here – places are free but they’re limited so you do need to register if you want to secure yours.

And if you’re quick, you just might be going home with one of those goody bags too…

Gardener’s question time

No, that’s not an error in the headline – if there’s one thing June is very picky about, it’s putting her apostrophes in the right place!!

The gardener in question – and being questioned on next Sunday‘s show – is Andy Tudbury, joining the Girls Around Town in the studio with a report on the first Belvoir Flower and Garden Festival last summer.

And, more importantly, with the latest news of this year’s festival in the stunning setting of Belvoir Castle on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July

Landscape gardener Andy will be chatting to June and Rachel about some of the highlights of 2018, sharing some of the feedback from exhibitors and visitors to the show and describing how, with the help of a team of experts, he’s aiming make the next one even better.

Tune in or listen online in the second hour of next week’s show to find out what’s in store for July, how and where to book tickets and how, if you get in quick, you’ll be able to take advantage of an Early Bird offer which will be announced soon.
