Wow, what a busy, productive, lovely evening I’ve just had! Not only did I get to eat some very yummy food courtesy of Claire Mackaness of YIAH (still a bit full, must learn to stop), but I also got to meet some inspirational Brentwood business women.

I could get used to this networking lark, especially if there’s good food involved 😉 I found out lots more about the Brentwood Bag Project which is wonderful, eco-friendly, community building enterprise. Seriously can not wait until Chicken and Frog are involved with the project. I also met so many fabulous people, all running independent shops and businesses in the heart of Brentwood, including Mesh, Running Rabbit, Vintage Victory, Cookery Angel, Raquette Boutique and Laurie Edmonds.

So I am now looking forward to meeting up with lots of people next week @Brentwoodtwtup, where I am hoping to ‘meet the faces behind the usernames, make new connections & get the local lowdown’.

I honestly do love Brentwood.


The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
