MORE than 50 local business people recently enjoyed a Wexford Chamber Business After Hours meeting at the Natural Health Store.

Starting up four years ago in the height of the recession, the Meehan family have proven that hard work and persistence pays off. The event, which took place downstairs in their store on Wexford's main street, was packed full with guests who were given the opportunity to speak with several of the store's trained Nutritional Therapists and Health Coaches. Both Christine Meehan and Claire Whitty spoke.

Christine told of how the Natural Health Store came to be and how each member of the Meehan family plays a close and vital role in the date-to-day running of the store.

Claire spoke on the different treatments and services available varying from coffee information mornings and free talks to holistic therapists and angel card readings. She also spoke of her blog and the work they do to support the local charities around town.

Michelle O'Neill, World Cup FIFA Assistant Referee, was the special guest speaker and told about her journey in a mainly a male-dominated industry, which showed that once again hard work and dedication pays off. Niall Reck, Vice President Wexford Chamber, said, 'We were delighted to work with the Meehan family. An inspiration to all retailers on the art of what is possible through hard work and self-belief. With Wexford Chamber's focus on health and wellbeing in the workplace, this BAH was timely and welcomed by all.' The evening ended with a business card draw. Maurice McGee, ESB, won a Massage Voucher from Slaney Health & Beauty valued at €100. Second prize was a Natural Health Store hamper and was won by June O'Hanlon and first prize, an even bigger hamper from the Natural Health Store was taken home by a very happy Shana Balducci, of Gabriel Pianos.
