Eastern Shires WiRE Network

Network Leaders:


Thank you for your interest in the WiRE Network for the Eastern Shires. Our region is newly expanded to cover Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire. We also regularly welcome members from neighbouring areas including Stamford and Peterborough.

Our meetings usually take place on the second Thursday of the month from 10.30am to 12pm, at a variety of rural businesses in our region; this means there is always something new to experience and we support our local economy too.

In 2020, we introduced a new workshop format via Zoom and plan to continue this as part of our regular meeting series throughout the coming year, extending a warm welcome to anyone who wants to join us – wherever you are! Please make sure we have your email address.

We have planned our meetings to feature really inspirational speakers and themes, and we will also be holding them in various interesting places throughout our area. Everyone is welcome and we are really looking forward to meeting with you, specifically with the following in mind:

  • To meet in an interesting place or space where women business owners can share expertise and knowledge
  • Each meeting will be an opportunity to build and try out new skills with others who are also passionate about getting ‘creative’ with business ideas
  • Providing a safe and supportive environment to discuss and find solutions to your business challenges – or maybe even if you want ideas for starting a business
  • Mutual minds with which to develop ideas to help you build sustainable business – a problem shared is a problem halved after all!

Do keep an eye on this page for more information or contact Network Leaders Rebecca Harvey or Mandy Anderson and they will add you to the mailing list.
