The event, held at South Hill Park, Ringmead, Bracknell, was "absolutely buzzing" with at least 155 business men and women - all networking to secure contracts and meet news contacts.

Organiser Sue Reeves said: "There were a lot of people, they were just turning up! It's been fantastic - particularly seeing all different types of people intermingling."

The next Business Biscotti meeting is on Wednesday, December 19, at South Hill Park Arts Centre, from 9.30-11.30am.
