Scottish Mumpreneur Network in Dumfries and Galloway!

It was featured in Dumfries and Galloway Standard, The Galloway Gazette and on West Sound Radio! 
The first meeting of the Dumfries & Galloway group of the SMN met on Tuesday 31 August 2010 between 10 am and noon at Hillcrest House, Station Road, Wigtown. There were eight attending, which was excellent for a first meet.Those attending were:

Deborah Firth of Hillcrest House

Heather Bestel of Magical Meditations 4 Kids

Renita Boyle, storyteller and author

Gina Lawson of Gina Lillycrop Designs

Claire Nash of Cupcakes by Claire

Helen Arnold of Brora Lodge B&B

Fiona Harrison of Galloway Alpacas

Lisa Dunn of HexagonVA (coordinator)

The meeting took the form of introductions, as some had never met before whereas others were old friends. Sitting around the coffee table we introduced ourselves, our businesses and our ideal clients/customers. This threw up some interesting ideas for strategic partnerships and for possible future ventures. Everyone agreed that it had been a great meeting and were keen to meet again, the next meeting being pencilled in for the last week of October, date to be confirmed.

We finished with a cup of tea and some amazing cupcakes!

Lisa thank you so much for all your hard work. Ladies I would love to come and meet up with you some time too. Keep up the good work. Louise x
