Burton-On-Trent WiRE Network

Network Leaders:

WiRE Burton offers a great opportunity to network with women who work and volunteer. We meet on the last Wednesday evening of the month between 7-9pm (except in December). Throughout 2017 we are supporting Burton YMCA as our charity of the year. They will benefit from raffles we will hold at our August and December socials but we also invite members and visitors to bring along to ANY of our 2017 meetings an item or two for the vital foodbank that the YMCA runs for families in our town.A list of the donated food that is needed can be found on the YMCA website here.

Upcoming events are listed on this page. We do encourage you to book a place to let us know you PLAN to attend as this helps us contact you with an agenda and information about which room we’ll be meeting in at our venue.

In August and December we enjoy a social meal in a local restaurant. For the other ten months of the year we meet at the Brewhouse arts centre in Union Street, Burton and offer friendly informal networking for members and visitors.

We always offer the opportunity to introduce yourself and what you do to the room. You are welcome to bring along leaflets, flyers and business cards to distribute. Most months, one WiRE member gives a 10-minute insight into her work.There is usually a guest speaker or workshop and occasionally we run a ‘pure networking’ night when there is chance to have longer 1-2-1 chats with different women at the meeting.

Prices are £5 for WiRE members and £8 for non-members, which includes a hot or cold (non-alcoholic) drink from the Brewhouse Cafe Bar. 

ALL working women (employed and self-employed) and those who volunteer for charities and good causes are welcome. You will pay on arrival. Any questions, please contact one of Burton’s three volunteer network leaders: Elaine, Alison or Lorraine.
