Networking Highlights: A Month of Connections and Celebrations

We've had a busy month of networking, meeting some lovely local like-minded people. The Chamber Connections event at Chilston Park Hotel, sponsored by NFU Mutual, had a great turnout. We also joined the Netwalking event hosted by Sevenoaks District Chamber of Commerce and Thackray Williams Llp Solicitors, taking a stroll through the scenic Shoreham countryside from the Mount vineyard. A big shoutout to the folks at We Do Social Media for their 10-year anniversary celebration at Thai Orchid in Maidstone. Our team also attended the Chamber Connections Networking (Delta Hotels by Marriott Tudor Park Country Club).

Exciting times ahead as we look forward to upcoming networking events, including a cocktail masterclass at Socialite and a netwalking session at Chartwell House. The netwalks are leisurely, lasting about an hour and ending with a delicious lunch, courtesy of Thackray Williams

Here's to more fantastic connections and experiences!

Halloween and Fireworks Events

October was a great month for app and website visitor numbers with thousands searching for local halloween and firework events. We had some great reviews all round and the county was blessed to have some amazing displays!

Leeds Castle put on a spectacular firework display as did The Hook and Hatchet in Hucking.

The Cave Hotel put on a spine-tingling halloween event where guests enjoyed a Halloween cocktail that was as delicious as it was spooky and an amazing Korean Cowgirl inspired infused platter, followed by an evening of halloween party songs by the DJ! Hall Place and Gardens ran a wonderful Halloween garden trail around the grounds for families.

We feel just about warmed up enough to get into the Christmas party season!
