This week I visited Taunton Vale, currently the largest club in the District, that meets at the County Cricket Ground. They have just started a Satellite Breakfast Business Networking club – now there is an idea.
My visit to Wrington Vale coincided with the Presentation Evening for their Young Artist Competition that attracted over eighty entrants. They now meet at Barley Wood which has a superb view from the dining room.
