Life's Just Networking Photographs, September 2009

Here are some photographs from our first event last night! A big thank you to all those who came along. We were pleased with how it went and it seemed like everyone had a good time, so we've decided to make the evening a regular event, running the first Thursday of every month. Our next event will be on 1st October and we are already open for RSVPs – please see for more details. Hope to see you next month!
