We know how important it is for local community-based organisations to be able to meet up with each-other, to share information, ideas, service updates and best practice.  In order to facilitate this, we hold monthly Networking lunches where organisations from the charity, community, public and voluntary sectors can meet. 

We warmly invite you to come along to our upcoming Networking lunch on Monday 30 September, 12:30pm-2pm, and build new or existing links with like-minded people and organisations from around the Thanet community.
