Girl power is helping to make businesses across East Lindsey great – and this week a group of the district’s movers and shakers enjoyed networking over afternoon tea. More than 20 members of East Lindsey Women in Business gathered for a festive afternoon of finger sandwiches and bite-size homemade cakes at Caxton House B&B – one of the winners at the recent Skegness Business Awards. The afternoon was a special ‘bring your mum’ event and a raffle of donated items raised £70 for Macmillan Cancer Support. East Lindsey Women in Business was formed 15 years ago and meets alternate months in Skegness and Louth.
Jenny Ramsdale, who organised yesterday’s tea hosted by Paul and Wendy Seabrook, said she was delighted with how much was raised for charity. She said: “Women network differently to men who are straight in there at business meetings. It’s surprising how much can be achieved having an afternoon like this.”
