MEMBERSHIP is booming at a local organisation for business women.

Mosaic was founded five years ago with 30 members and there are now more than 200.

The latest meeting featured an image workshop sponsored by Business Link North Manchester.

Compere Chris Barbour of Color Me Beautiful gave advice about improving overall appearance by clearing the mind of clutter, building a fitter and healthier body and dressing to create the right impression for the right occasion.

Mosaic members who contributed to the day included Josephine Cropper of Healthy Horizons, Ruth Beesley of Fit for the Occasion, Debby Mercer of Making Faces, Lyn Gilpin of Delores & Evelyn Lingerie, Sue Mallett of Holistic Therapy and trichologist David Bailey.

The next meeting of Mosaic, which is open to all women in business, will be hosted by Keoghs Solicitors at their Middlebrook head office on Thursday, October 24. It will provide members with the opportunity to network and make a brief presentation on their own businesses. Further details are available from Kay Gregson at Bolton & Bury Chamber on 01204 374668, email
