New 'Nightwise' Project at LV=Streetwise

Our new mock-up pub has been installed to deliver the ‘NightWise’ safety sessions to groups of young people, with a focus on staying safe on a night out. Topics covered will include strengths of alcohol, units of alcohol, drink spiking, behaviour change after a drink, getting home safely and looking after each other. NightWise, aims to educate young people aged 16 and above about responsible drinking, drug awareness and keeping safe so that they will fully understand the potential dangers and have the knowledge to cope with a situation in a responsible and safe way. In addition the ‘pub’ is available to hire as a meeting room and will help towards the sustainability of the charity.

The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014!

The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014 have been announced!

The finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards in association with Breeze VW Dorset 2014 have been announced! Yesterday afternoon the finalists were announced at the wonderful Norfolk Royal in Bournemouth. With under 6 weeks until the award ceremony, excitement is certainly building!

Tara Howard, founder of the awards which started in Dorset in 2009 explaining her reasons for doing so she said "Being a mother of four and juggling business and family (as so many women have to do) I realised that women are not always on a fair playing field with men when it comes to recognition and awards. That is why I started the Venus Awards. After five years of running the awards, my experience is that the main thing holding most women back is themselves.

A record number of nominations for Venus Awards

The nominations for this year’s Venus Business Women Awards, Dorset 2014 that closed on 8th March broke more records this year.

Now in its fifth successful year and under the umbrella of the Venus Awards, nominations for women across the whole of Dorset hit over 1500. The Venus Awards recognises the efforts and talents of local business women, and are split into fourteen categories covering all aspects of business and personal achievement.

Founded by working mother-of-four and former MD of the Historic Langtry Manor Hotel, Tara Howard, the Venus Awards were created to give due credit to women in business who can sometimes be overlooked and undervalued. “From our small yet successful beginnings here in Dorset my dream of recognising women outside of my home town has become a reality. Venus Awards are now expanding across the country and will become a truly National event where women from all regions can be recognised and rewarded under one umbrella and join the Venus Awards Winners Circle – our family of truly inspirational women.
