And so this is Christmas...


... and what have you done?

NOT QUITE! Christmas doesn't really start til you've had the obligatory work Christmas Do, eaten one too many mince pies and probably had one sherry too many as well...

Thankfully running a small business means you can generally get away without too many of those embarassing moments... until now.

Here at VOOT we like our networking events. We over indulge on the company of our networking colleagues throughout the year and give and receive referrals like Xmas presents. What better way to round off another year than by joining with those networking colleagues to round off our run up to Christmas with a slap up meal, a few drinks and some great company?

This year in Rotherham VOOT has networked with the best of em. Rotherham United Business Club, 4N, BNI, Myplace, and last but not least we have been delighted to host the Rotherham Firm once a month at the Sidings in Brinsworth. Now - we'd love to bring you all together at the Sidings for a final knees up - on Thursday 20th December at 1pm. Christmas Lunch will be served, its a great menu (listed below) in fantastic surroundings with lovely people to boot.

Demand is already high. So high in fact that I have had to insist on a £5 deposit for the £20 event. £20 is exactly what we are being charged - no profits here. We'd love to see as many of you there as possible - but please note I want to give the venue final numbers 1 week in advance - ie Thursday 13th December - if you havent booked your space by 5pm on the 13th I'm afraid the book will be closed.

I've even created a Paypal Button to help you. Click below, book your space, pop it in your diary and come and join us for a bit of fun on Thursday 20th December.

Bringing all these networking groups together has never happened before - and the nay-sayers insist it can't be done... Lets prove em wrong shall we? Do They Know Its Christmas??
