LEDBURY Rugby Club is the venue of an event featuring small businesses run by women where there will be an array of stands selling products and services from hand-made goods, such as fleece blankets, chocolates, teddies and china, to accessories and business solutions.

Gina Hastings, the organiser spent her formative years in Bromyard and then travelled widely.

In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, she started her own plaque-making business for children's rooms. On returning to Bromyard, she became an events organiser.

This year she has been organising the Business Start-up Directions event and Ladies in Business events which have been focused on promoting small businesses run by women in the Hereford and Worcester area.

There is an open invitation to come along to the Pavilion Rooms in the Ledbury Rugby Club on Wednesday, November 1, starting at 6.30pm.
