There has been great support of all events held so far and a schedule of regular networking and invited speaking events is planned for 2022.
Currently there are three coordinators, Shayna Ward, Lara Dunningham and Jayne Shearer. Shayna, and Lara are two of the founders of the HBWIH group and Jayne came on board this year and is a local Hastings Pipfruit grower.
The overwhelming feedback from members is that they really enjoy regular networking and social events to meet and engage with other women.
Our most recent networking event, a tour of Zeffer Cidery was attended by 20 members. We were given a behind the scenes tour from head cider maker Jody Scott followed by networking at the cidery.
