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!

Melanie 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 ten years later @ 35 to 40 local business people attend our meetings.

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

We cover a truly diverse range of businesses e.g. Copy Writers, IT specialists, Accountants, Printers,  Hypnotherapists, Human Resources, Web Designers,  Photographers, Admin Services, Solicitors, Interior Designers, Marketing Agencies, Financial Advisors, Local Magazines etc. 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 areas why not come along and say hello – it would be lovely to meet you.

You don’t need to book but if you give me a ring or send me an e-mail to let me know you are coming along for the first time, then I can look out for you when you arrive.

I look forward to meeting you

Best Wishes

Melanie Wardle
