Join us on #HerefordHour this Monday 1 Oct – 1-2pm!

We are so excited to have been invited, along with Herefordshire Wildlife Trust, to take part in #HerefordHour this Monday 1 Oct from 1 pm!

If you haven’t heard of #HerefordHour you can learn more here. This is Twitter networking for Herefordshire businesses and organisations, with a dedicated theme each week. It has become a popular local tool for publicity and marketing, networking and sharing information.

On Monday the chat will centre around the h.Energy festival, sustainability and wildlife… it would be great to get your feedback during the hour. HGN’s very own Events Co-ordinator, Rebecca, will be joining in with the chat and she’d love to hear from you too!


Our lovely h.Energy posters and leaflets are now with the printers and will be available to collect this Wednesday 19th September at the HGN Members Meeting (5-6.30pm) at Gwynne House, Left Bank or at the HGN Gathering from 7.30pm at Left Bank, Hereford.

They give a full schedule of all the activities taking place around the weekend of 13/14th October. It would be wonderful if you can take a good handful and circulate so look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this Wednesday!

If you’d like to take a sneak preview, the leaflets and poster are being uploaded to the HGN website under Documents, and please feel free to circulate digitally as well!
