A Hampshire lunchtime networking group for business owners has taken on a new lease of life after moving to Southampton Football Stadium.

The 4N Southampton lunch group is now meeting fortnightly at St Mary’s Stadium. Its August meetings will be held on August 1 and August 15.

Diana Moore, 4N regional leader for Hampshire who runs her own Forever Living business, said: “We thrilled with our new location which is easily accessible with fantastic catering and we’re grateful to Halo Conferences and Events, who manage the stadium, for making us so welcome.”

Jessica Phippard, Halo’s business events manager, said: “We are delighted to be working with 4Networking. It is a unique and fun way to network with local businesses. The lunch has grown from strength to strength and it has created a network of individuals that not only get along socially, but are also creating business links.”

The lunch meetings run from midday to 2pm and follow a 50 per cent social and 50 per cent format.

The cost is £15 per person with refreshments included. Visitors can come along to up to two meetings before making a decision about joining. Anyone interested in attending doesn’t need to be a member but does need to book in advance.

4Networking (4N) supports thousands of business owners across the UK at over 5,000 events a year and has 250 active groups in England, Wales and Scotland. It was established nearly 12 years ago and all members can visit any group at any time.
