The Old Ship Richmond, 3 King Street, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 1ND 

We welcomed guest speaker Holly Tucker MBE, founder of Holly & Co, and Chief Inspirator and co-founder of notonthehighstreet.com. Her life long passion is to champion creative enterprises and support small businesses.
 
Holly’s dedication and contribution to business has been recognised through a number of awards over the years, most notably by her MBE for services to small businesses and enterprise as part of Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Honours List in June 2013, and her appointment as the UK Ambassador for Creative Small Businesses by the Prime Minister in 2015. 


We also explored and voted on this year's proposed WI Resolutions:

  1. Alleviating Loneliness
  2. Plastic Soup: Keep microplastic fibres out of our oceans
