Another month down, 1/4 of the year now passed and Easter looming on our doorstep! The clocks went forward this weekend and it will be light after 7pm for the first time since last October!
Link4Growth continues to forge forward in SW Herts. We had two new events in February, matched by two new events in March. Reason cafe & Bookstore played host to a second Coffee this time in the evening 5:30-8pm on the 4th Monday of the month, and the Three Crowns pub a Link4Drinks event on the 4th Thursday of the month; our very first in the Bushey area. Do please check out the full listing of events for April
and invite people you know as we begin to bring Link4Growth to all corners of the District.
#L4GBuyLocalWatford Colateral will be with us shortly too! I mentioned this last month we are having some new post cards printed with all the important local links on and some labels for traders to display in windows to show their support for all local businesses in the area! ...
The Link4Growth SW Herts District website
is growing all the time! New people are joining the town communities and local businesses are joining the free BuyLocal Watford business directory
! The community calendar
is filling up nicely and the TV channel has over 100 videos of local interest, businesses, charities, CIC's (community interest companies), as well as the weekly community TV shows. Do check out the TV channel, some new interesting additions this month and remember... We're looking to feature all local businesses AND charities and if you haven't been 'done' yet do get in touch!
One of the most widely viewed videos this month is a new local coffee chop 'The Kitchen Croxley
'. Over 200 views in 2 days! We're moving our coffee event there from the Rising Sun in April and we're really excited about this new venue. A real local Croxley business.
Many people I meet (and I mean many) are struggling with how to get the most from their online presence. Please do come along to the Link4Coffee events where we can sort out a simple social strategy for you... Take a look at this video
... And then this video
about the power of Social Media and then get onto our Link4Skills ~ people's university workshops
. All delivered online, and recorded, so you watch over and over until you're confident to join in... Visit Link4Skills for all the upcoming trainings... All you need is an Internet connection and a browser... Why wait?
We are busy planning a L4G Fish & Chip BYO night gathering at Reason Cafe for a Friday night... Date to be announced and a few other activities as well. And the Nash Mills Waterways Experiences are hosting a very special Link4Coffee now on the 4th Friday of the month...
Including a Canal Cruise
while we Mingle! ... Lastly don't forget the #L4GMingle 1st Monday of the month 6th April over on Twitter. National networking between 7:30-9:30pm!!
During April we will be busy developing connections with local community centres, the local radio Vibe 107.6 and actively supporting the New Market developments. Catch all the news online and via the TV shows
every Friday at 4pm.
There has never been a better time to join in and become part of community building in SW Herts. Please do support us if you haven't already and become a Link4Growth subscriber
. Link4Growth is not for profit and the small contribution of £3 a month really does help if everyone does their bit!
All our events are free to attend, friendly and welcoming where you can meet other local people and have conversations, remember those? We have events at different times of the day including evenings so there is something for everyone... Our events are informal where we meet, talk, listen, learn, share, connect and inspire... the time is now!
N.B. The Rickmansworth CSR Luncheon has moved to Thursday 2nd April for this month only on account of Easter.
