Tour, Taste and Network
Come and join your CIPD colleagues for an evening at Kent's Original Vineyard for an evening of a tour, some tasting and a full ploughman's supper.
Biddenden vineyard spans 23 acres of gentle south facing slopes situated in a sheltered valley, just outside the picturesque Wealden village of Biddenden. 11 different grape varieties are grown here to produce our array of award-winning White, Rosé, Red and Sparkling English wines.
We hope that you can join us for the evening and sample some fabulous wines and ciders. There will be a substantial Ploughmans to help soak up the alcohol!
It will also be a great opportunity to meet new contacts in HR and L&D or catch up with old friends.
We may even throw in a little something to take home.....
There are limited spaces available so we are asking that you book your place with a deposit which will be refunded if you attend.
Once you have booked, please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or other requirements we should know to ensure you have an enjoyable evening.
Professional photography and video production will be taking place at the event, and these images may be used on future promotional materials for CIPD. Please note that by attending the event, you are giving your consent for your image to be used on any CIPD promotional materials.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Most Satnavs find the vineyard easily and there is plenty of parking on site. We would always encourage that you do not drink and drive though.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have any questions or queries please email the Kent Event Co-ordinator, Melanie Moore, on 01227 656322 or 07768 294912
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
The deposit will be in your name so if you wish to transfer this to someone else you will need to let us know. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call in 01227 656322 or 07768294912. Deposits will be refunded the day after the event.
When & Where
CIPD Kent Branch
We are the Kent branch of CIPD - the professional body for HR and people development. The not-for-profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
We have a wide range of organisations and CIPD membership and we respond to this with a full selection of CPD and networking opportunities.
Due to the geographical spread of the county we have 3 area groups – Mid Kent, West Kent and East Kent. Between them they regularly hold sessions with guest speakers on subjects requested by the members. Most events are supported by local companies who host the events and provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners.
We also appreciate the specialisms within HR and have Special Interest Groups that meet regularly and occasionally have speakers. These groups include Health and Social Care and Senior Practitioners. Similarly we have smaller bespoke groups, Self Managed Learning Groups that operate throughout the county. These include the Coaching Groups in East Kent and West Kent. We encourage the creation of new groups so if there is not an area covered, why not set one up?
Come along to an event and meet our friendly and welcoming committee members and the wonderful HR community of Kent!
