New Co-op launch, opportunity for women in business, mid Devon

Spring sees the public launch of a new Mid Devon based co-operative group for women who have, or are starting up, their own businesses. “Women Forward” has developed from a Community Council project, and on March 13th (6-8pm) current members will be serving wine & canapés at Tiverton Town Hall to any women who would like to register their interest or to find out more about the group.

Membership of the group provides the opportunity for training, mentoring, skill sharing and support from other women, creating joint promotional activities and networking both locally and in the wider field.

Said Joslyn Mottershead, the chair of Women Forward,” Attendance at our monthly meetings shows how vital networking is for our rural business women. In today’s climate we need all the support we can get, especially from those who understand the the live/work balance aspect first-hand! On March 13th we hope to raise our profile in the community and welcome new members on board.”
