The Smart Alex section of The Alexandra on Wimbledon High Street was the location for yesterday’s networking event. The evening was a relaxed affair with around 30 people in attendance. With the warm weather and it being peak holiday season, it had been a little more difficult to encourage people to attend however a good amount of people turned up for it to be a fun evening, with jugs of Pimms going round and a buffet of cold meats, sausages and breads.
