There was a chance for members and visitors at Bingham Business Club’s latest meeting to do some networking before breakfast.
The club is a support, social network and forum for businesses in and around the Bingham area. It offers members and other attendees the chance to meet and constructively work together to generate revenue and help address the issues that face local businesses.
Whether you are a new business starting out or a long-established part of the landscape, the club welcomes your input and looks forward to seeing you at one of its future meetings.
The Bingham Business Club meets monthly at Yeung Sing on the corner of Market Street and Long Acre, Bingham, at 8am, except for the summer barbecue and Christmas lunch.
Meetings usually take the form of introductions, followed by a speaker, and then breakfast. But the September meeting was a networking session, giving existing and new members the opportunity to meet one another and learn about their businesses.
Meetings also regularly include 30-second slots, in which members or visitors can tell the meeting about services, events or news that may be of interest. At the latest meeting, club chairman Jonathan Hammond introduced Jessica Cash, chairman of governors at Bingham Robert Miles Infant School, who said the school was looking to recruit governors for the community, and encouraged members to consider joining; Tyrel Yglesias-Brown of Rushcliffe Borough Council, who invited members to a Rushcliffe Business Partnership networking event at the British Geological Survey on November 1, with a discount for BBC members; Emma Davis of the Rosie May Foundation, who invited members to a celebration pie night at The Wheatsheaf in Bingham on November 9; and Jan Parnham of Long Acre Studios, who spoke about an artisan Christmas fair taking place at the gallery on November 18.
Jonathan Hammond told members about a sea shanty evening taking place at the Thomas Cranmer Centre, Aslockton, on October 28 to raise money for Bingham and District Audio Magazine, and he also launched his annual cryptic quiz, which each year raises money for ChildLine. Last year’s quiz had more than 1,600 entries and raised more than £2,200. Copies of the quiz are available online at www.hammondpropertyservices.com
The club’s next meeting is on Tuesday October 17.
