We start the New Year with a fabulous new venue - The Elm Tree in Ringwood is a gorgeous thatched country inn with a beautiful Tythe Barn attached where we will be holding our monthly Live Laugh Love events. I am so excited about launching here on the 24th January and welcoming you along to share in a lovely light supper - refreshments and our first speaker of 2018 is the fabulous Kristian Lees-Bell - a Hypnotherapist and Physchoanalyst who helps to treat various conditions, fears and phobias and specialises in sleep patterns and getting a good night's sleep.

Make a beeline to the Elm Tree for this evening where we welcome the very entertaining Totty Cruttenden from Totty's Good Life. Bee's play such an essential part in the world around us, and Totty will be giving us a real insight into Bee-Keeping and all about the Birds and the Bees - the flowers and the trees! Totty rescues Bumblebee nests & Honeybee swarms and re-homes them to a safe place where they can carry on with natures good work.
Honey Goods - When our girls produce enough to honey and wax, we collect and produce hive products. The money generated from sales finances the next generation of rescue bees homes.
Wedding Favours....We also produce special little jars of honey with artisan designed labels as gifts for your guests to take away a little love with them.
Just to reassure you, there won't be any bees with us on the night but you will see a model hive and Totty will also be bringing along with her some of the honeycombs and of course her wonderful and incredibly tasty honey for you to help keep this important chain of nature going.
At this month's evening event we welcome along a fabulous speaker with many talents Susie Mackie who is coming from Cheltenham. Susie is an amazing photographer who produces the most stunning images from Wedding to food to Boudoir but her most recent and incredible achievement is in writing and compiling a wonderful book called 'Women of Spirit' an uplifting and inspirational collection of stories from women who have risen above their challenges to come through stronger and with restored self-esteem. Susie's introduction to her book is :-
'I’ve been there, and I know only too well the consequences low self-worth has on your life.
My path was a hard one but I was lucky enough to have support from some amazing women who shared their experiences with me on the way and made me feel less alone.
I now realise that sharing life experiences can empower others who are struggling with extraordinary personal challenges.
This book was created to give each and every woman a platform not only to be heard but from which she is able to help others through their pain.
My hope is that you will help us build the women of spirit movement into something that will reach women who are in need of love and support.'
Come along and hear Susie's story first hand and see some of her beautiful photography
