Young Professionals - A Thirsty Thursday in Nuneaton

This month’s TT event was held last night at Saints Bar in Nuneaton. Granted Nuneaton can be a trek, particularly at rush hour, but it was great to try out somewhere new. Saints only opened recently so we thought it would be rude not to try some of their delicious, locally sourced food whilst we were there. I can confirm that their wood fired pizzas are fantastic!

It was great to see representation from a wide range of sectors including banking, legal, finance, insolvency and education. Paige Howitt from Stewart Fletcher & Barrett was the lucky winner of the business card draw (pictured above).

The best news of the evening was that Rebecca Freeman, our YP Chair, has been promoted from Assistant Solicitor to Associate at Lodders Solicitors. I also found out this week that I passed the first module of my Chartered Institute of Marketing qualification.

The other big topic for the evening was that Rebecca has agreed to dress as mascot ‘Patsy the Cow’ for the Myton Hospice Summer Fete on Sunday 19th July. If you’d like to take the opportunity to go along to the fete, support a great local charity, and take a few compromising photos of Rebecca for future use whilst you’re there, I’m sure Myton would love to have you. The event details can be found here. Committee members Paige Howitt and Holly Brain will also be volunteering on the day, and I’ll be going along to take some photographs.

Next month’s Thirsty Thursday event will be replaced by a table football tournament, for which we’re currently finalising the details. Look out for an email invite from us very soon. If you’re not on our mailing list email me at and I’ll add you. All our events are open to young professionals of any age across Coventry and Warwickshire.
