At WINN they are excited about the return of WINN Wednesdays which have had to be put on hold due to Covid although we might not be able to meet face-to-face this doesn’t stop them at WINN. They are relaunching WINN Wednesdays in a new exciting format so keep an eye on their Instagram account (plus all their other social media) for all updates regarding this exciting project. https://www.instagram.com/winnhub/
