This month’s B2B meeting was hosted by Eden Healthy Lifestyle Studio, our independent business of the year winners. Once again our members had a really fun night and learnt lots about what the business does and also a bit about our own health/fitness levels. For more information visit their website http://edenhealthylifestylestudio.co.uk/. Thank you Diana for being such a lovely, welcoming host.
I've had a number of members asking us about the changes in respect of business rates so I just wanted to let you know that there will be a new valuations issued in the Autumn and the important thing will be making sure that the valuations are correct. Chamber, in conjunction with Mere Commercials will be in touch nearer the time with further help and advice.
Finally, below is a copy of an e-mail that was sent to Penrith Tourist information a couple of weeks ago:
Yesterday I visited Penrith on a coach trip and just want to say that your town is a credit to those who care about its image I particularly admired the floral displays in the streets, they are just breath-taking, and the whole coach was admiring them. Also, I was fascinated by the pink sandstone pavements and – people were friendly and helpful
The whole town looks cared for, the toilet in the car park was clean, we found a good café and a dress shop in the arcade and despite the rain we had a super day I will certainly come again and spend a bit longer to explore the surrounding area as well as the town itself.
Fantastic, well-deserved feedback.
