An event inspired by the need to keep business local saw more than twenty five companies attend last night (10 October).
Organised by the Facebook group ‘Hailsham Shop Local’, the business networking group was hosted by Bucklers Cafe in St. Mary’s Walk, and heard from a number of guest speakers including Haulaway and Hailsham Card.
The aim of the networking event is to give local small businesses the opportunity to meet likeminded people in a social environment, allowing them to offer their services at the same time.
Viktoria Cowley from Hailsham Shop Local said; “It was an amazing evening and we were proud to see so many business owners attend. The feedback has been incredible and already, many have reported finding new customers during the evening,”
It’s hoped the evening paved the way for extra networking events in the near future to be held at various venues across the town.
