There were another couple of firsts for Wimbledon Women in Business (WWIB) on Wednesday 13 March. Our first Open Networking event of the year, and our first event at Rosie Q’s in West Wimbledon.
We had a great turn out of members and guests who enjoyed milling around Rosie Q’s ‘The Shed’ (more on that later) whilst enjoying a glass of wine and fabulous canapes provided by one of our members, Carol Black of First Serve Catering. Lucky us!!
As well as all of that, it was great to meet Rosie Q’s manager, Rachel, and learn more about the café and the philosophy behind it. It is a “gourmet café” which as well as serving delicious tea, coffee and cake, offers a fantastic homemade Santa Fe inspired lunch menu with specialist wines, beers and cocktails. But not only that, you will find a whole array of unique handmade gifts available to buy, all made and created by a range of local artists. We’re proud to say that one of the local artists selling her creations at the café is WWIB member Peta Cottee from Partners in Time, who also makes unique and bespoke handbags and accessories from beautiful Scottish tweed and the highest quality Italian leather under the brand name Totes and Tassles.
Behind the café and across a decked area, Rosie Q’s also has ‘The Shed’ which is where Rachel hosted us. It’s a light airy space with a real Scandi feel which is available to hire (like we did!) for private events, as well as offering a range of wellbeing classes from yoga and pilates to art and language classes.
Why not check it out for yourself? We are very glad that we did. And we will definitely be back.
