Nurture the Network March 15th

March 15, 2013

After the cakes I went to a meeting organised by Tri-Synergy Marketing where I was joined by Elaine.

This was a chance for company directors or spokespeople to get together and exchange views and ideas.

About 30 senior people were there for the introduction by Tina Webb, the Managing director of Tri-Synergy, after which I gave a short welcomig talk, before all of those present introduced themselves and indicated who they were representing.

After a break for lunch we retook our seats to hear a short presentation on local firm Dunham-Bush given by the UK Managing Director, Mike Holding.

After Tina’s closing address, I thanked everyone for coming and invited them to consider joining the Civic Day planned for April 16th.

Red Nose Day March 15th

Ready to Judge.

At lunchtime today I was asked to judge a bake-off in aid of this year’s Children in Need appeal.

As can be seen in the accompanying photos, there was a wide range of very artistic cakes and biscuits which made it very difficult to pick the winner. After a great deal of consideration, and having to choose between a giant cup cake and a teapot, I decided on the cup cake, as it followed the theme of Red Nose day.

The cakes were then auctioned, with the money raised going to the charity.

I then went downstairs where members of the Adult Services team were having a sale of cakes, brownies and my favourite, bread pudding. Guess which I bought!

One of the male (?) team members was dressed as a lady. It was only the hairy arms which gave the game away!!
