What's Handpicked been up to this Summer?
I thought I'd let you know about some of the new developments and exciting things that are happening with Handpicked for Dorking.
Back in June I was invited to present at the Dorking Business Breakfast Group.
This was a great opportunity for me to meet a variety of established businesses in Dorking, some of them who follow us on social media, and tell them more about the Handpicked past, present and future journey.
At the event I met Simon from Clandon Wood who I'm pleased to say recognised
the importance of community in the heart of what Handpicked for Dorking is trying to achieve and put me through a referral to the Surrey Hills Enterprise Group.
In a lunch break from the day job, I got to meet Wendy from the Group and explain to her what Handpicked was about.
She loved what we are about, and asked me to become part of the Surrey Hills Enterprise group to help support and promote Handpicked...
How could I possibly say no?!
So the great news is that our application has been approved!
We can now use the Surrey Hills logo branding, be part of their e-newsletter, social media and join networking events. We've already included the logo as part of our next event posters and flyers and can't wait to be involved in more opportunities to shout about Handpicked for Dorking and its family of creative gurus.
What's coming up?
We're back at Crossways for the rest of this year
And we're very excited to be hosting the creative gurus at Pippfest this year!

Lastly I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has given me and Handpicked the support and belief in myself to make this happen.
