Hamwic Speakers held its first Toastmaster meeting on 10th March 2009 and after seven eventful months achieved membership growth to 20+ enthusiastic members. On 9th October 2009 Hamwic received the official chartered club status from Toastmasters International. Thanks to our many very talented members, the Hamwic success story has slowly yet surely unfolded over the past action-packed decade.
