Chamber Summer Lunch

Join us for some gin tasting and lunch in the sun - networking with local businesses

We welcome anyone in business looking to network and make new contacts in a friendly and relaxed environment, so ensure that you bring plenty of business cards.

There will be a short talk from School in a Bag about their successes and for anyone new to the charity, why they do what they do. There will also be the opportunity to pack a bag on the day and help a child gain an education.

We are also drawing on the expertise of Newton House Gin who will be telling us the story of Yeovil's only distillery and will be sharing samples of their award-winning gins with us.

Catering for this event will be created by Chamber members No5 Catering with a delicious ploughman's variation. Please mention any dietry requirements on check-out. There will be plenty of food for vegetarians / Vegans.

This summer event is in association with the local charity 'School in a Bag'. located at the beautiful Home Farm in Chilthorne Domer.
