An Independently Connected Network of Businesses in Mid Devon

Breakfast is Back!

20/08/2020 - Category: default

I hope that this email finds you and your business in good shape, despite the demands of the pandemic.

In an attempt to reintroduce some normality, I am pleased to advise you that the Hartnoll Hotel are able to host a face-to-face network meeting for us next week on Wednesday 26th August 2020, which will be COVID-19 compliant.

Unsurprisingly, the meetings will be different from those held previously, particularly the booking / payment of £10 per person. Please use the following link on the MDN website:

Your booking will generate an invoice and provide BACS details. Please pay the £10 per person via BACS in advance of the meeting. I will not be collecting cash at the Event.

A full English breakfast will be included and served to you at the table rather than the usual buffet format. Please use the “Comments” box on the booking form to advise of any dietary requirements.
Please note the following points:

  • Numbers will be limited to a maximum of 20, on a first come first served basis.
  • Please do not come to the meeting if you are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • On arrival at the hotel building, please use the sanitizer provided and wear a mask from the Hotel entrance to the dining room.
  • Please go straight to a table and take your place, whereupon the mask can be removed.
  • There will be a maximum of 5 people per table.
  • A member of the hotel staff will serve you with tea / coffee once you are seated and your food will also be delivered to you in a similar manner.
  • There will be the usual opportunity to deliver a 60 second pitch to the other delegates in the room.
  • There will be no paper agenda or attendee list, but it is hoped these will be emailed to you before the meeting.
  • Towards the end of the meeting there will be the opportunity for us to swap with another individual on another table having again used the hand sanitiser first.
  • The meeting should finish at around 9am as is usual.
  • Further details regarding the Hotel’s approach to COVID-19 can be found on this link:

Depending on the success of this meeting, we are hoping to repeat the experience at Downes Crediton Golf Club on 9th September. Thereafter it is hoped that we complete the remainder of the 2020 meeting programme on the fortnightly dates already allotted.

Hope to see you there!
Kind regards, 


MDN Secretary
