On Tuesday the 21st of January, the Well Wessex group of organisations hosted a networking day at the Rural Enterprise Center. Over 90 attendees from the voluntary sector and statutory sectors in Somerset attended.
Throughout the day we had a wide variety of speakers; Annie Maw (Lord Lieutenant of Somerset), Lucy Jones (Medical Herbalist) and Karen Prosser (Director at Somerset Partnership NHS). Finally, Vanessa Gordon reminded us of how we can promote good mental health in the workplace.
A particular highlight for most was hearing from members of groups founded by Creativity Works. The Writing Space and Keynsham Snap n Stroll explained what participating in their groups means for them. They provided fun filled and interesting activities throughout their discussion.
During the breaks, there was plenty of chance to network with members of organisations both large and small in Somerset. All of the Well Wessex organisations were delighted with the outcome of the day and we hope to run a similar day again in the future.
