Next Meeting:

Wed 3rd Jan 24

Coffee and Connect is an independent networking group for local business people held in Hartley Wintney near Fleet in Hampshire. Our meetings are relaxed and friendly and we are very welcoming towards first time visitors. We have lots of smiles and great conversations at our meetings but don’t be deceived, lots of “proper” business gets done as well!

Mel Wardle

Hello! I’m Mel (Melanie Wardle) and I set up Coffee and Connect in May 2008. Twelve of us met up for a coffee in Fleet at that first meeting and fifteen years later our meetings are thriving.

Our format is very simple – we each have a minute to introduce ourselves and our business and then we stay and chat afterwards. It’s as simple as that!

We cover a truly diverse range of businesses for example: Copy Writers, IT Specialists, Accountants, Printers, Hypnotherapists, Human Resources, Web Designers,  Photographers, Admin Services, Solicitors, Interior Designers, Marketing Agencies, Financial Advisors, Local Magazines and many more and come from Farnham and Camberley in Surrey across to Fleet, Farnborough, Hartley Wintney, Hook and Odiham through to Basingstoke in Hampshire.

If you run or work in a business in these local areas why not come along and say hello – it would be lovely to meet you.

There is no membership or pre-booking required, though if you give me a ring or send me an e-mail to let me know you are coming along for the first time, I can look out for you when you arrive.

I look forward to meeting you.

Best Wishes

Melanie Wardle
