Despite national Brexit uncertainty local business is stronger than ever as it has been announced that over £1.3 million pounds of business has been passed between members of the town’s Business Growth Group (BGG) in the last 12 months.
BGG, which meets every Friday morning in Melksham, has been established for six years and the latest figures are a strong sign of its continued growth. Members range from businesses such as Priority IT, Office Evolution and Embroidery UK, to local trade firms CK Painting and decorating, Renew Flooring and JP Building Contractors. Other industries represented include Human Resources, web design and branding as well as the care sector.
Newly elected chair, Helen Llewellyn of The House Keeping Company, said “Our networking group continues to provide a valuable source of work for each other. Not only do we refer business to trusted members that we see week in week out, but we also provide an environment for personal and professional development. We’re currently looking for new members to join us so I would encourage anyone who may be interested to take a look at our website and get in touch if they would like to visit.”
There are currently 34 members of BGG each representing one industry or business type. Openings exist for a number of industries not currently represented in the group, these include: an architect, bookkeeper, caterer, estate agent, events organiser, marketing agency, interior designer and a recruitment consultant.
