Business and pleasure at the club

PLANS are being put in place to promote Amble Business Club – including a social night later this month.

The organisation wants to recruit as many members as possible to help it go from strength to strength.

The group, open to any business in and around the town, aims to promote the area’s businesses, encourage and support the creation and expansion of local businesses and highlight the benefits of businesses in the area to a wider audience.

As part of the promotion plans, it is holding a social night on Friday, May 18, at the town’s Radcliffe Club. It is open to anyone and will feature a buffet and live entertainment. Admission is £5 per person, payable on the door.

Members have also discussed producing a formal introduction pack to be sent to businesses in the area.

Chairman Colin Harris said: “Since reforming last year, Amble Business Club has made great strides in bringing together local businesses in taking action over the challenges we face in our town. We’d like to do more and share with other businesses in the area, particularly with the trades and those off Queen Street.

“We have a range of topics such as funding, guest speakers, the supermarket development and tendering opportunities. I’m sure that the town’s plumbers, electricians and joiners would benefit from getting involved.”

The group’s next meeting is Wednesday, June 13, at 6pm, in the town’s Fourways 2.
