Neston Town Council has joined forces with Neston & District Chamber of Trade to invite local business people to a brand new event.

The first Neston Business Matters Forum will take place on Wednesday 4th March 2015, 5.30- 7.30pm at Elephant Coffee in Neston High Street.

The event is free to attend and aims to give local business people the opportunity to talk to one another, as well as representatives from organisations that can help firms in a number of ways.

Town Centre Manager Katy Pierce said, “Neston Town Council is keen to help develop increased communication within the local business community and also to encourage relationships between them and the local authorities and other organisations that can offer support.

“As an example, over the last few months I have been involved in co-ordinating shopping promotions for the town centre, including the upcoming Easter Egg Hunt during the school holidays, and I am also soon to launch a shop local campaign to promote the benefits of shopping locally. The Business Matters Forum is an excellent platform to discuss ideas like this and have the opportunity to talk with a number of people who do business in the area and have experience, opinions and ideas that can help us all move forward positively.”

Carrie Spacey, editor of local website AboutMyArea CH64 and Secretary of Neston & District Chamber of Trade added, “We can achieve much more together than we can apart. It would be great to see a wide variety of business people attending this event, from throughout the area, to exchange ideas, air any concerns they may have and talk about the products and services they offer.

“There will be representatives at the event from Neston Town Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire Police. We are also inviting people along who can talk about apprenticeship schemes, business development initiatives, grants and social media for businesses.”

If you are based in, or do business in, the Neston area, you are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact Katy Pierce on 0151 353 1056 or tcm@nestontowncouncil.org.uk.
