Business Hubs in the Cheshire area

The next Business Hub will be held in Crewe this month. The event, on Wednesday, August 11, will give local businesses the chance to come face to face with Cheshire East Council and find out how to tender for public service contracts. Officers from the Authority’s procurement team will be on hand to answer a full range of questions relating to publicly-funded business support.

It will be held at Scope House, in Crewe, from 10am. It is a free drop-in event available to small to medium-sized businesses. Representatives from Business Link, Blue Orchid, HM Revenue & Customs, Jobcentre Plus, ACAS, The Reaseheath Enterprise Delivery Hub, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and East Cheshire Chamber will also be on hand on offer advice.

For more information, to book a place at one or more of the workshops or to book an appointment with the Procurement Team (to find out about how to tender for public service contracts) – please email about the Business Hub events.

A further seven Business Hubs are to be held across Cheshire East up until March 2011.

Cheshire East Councillor Diana Thompson, Cabinet support member with responsibility for prosperity said: “The Business Hubs have proved to be popular events so far, providing advice for many businesses across Cheshire East. I would urge any local businesses in Crewe to come along to the event and see what this Authority can offer. Learning how to tender for a public service contract could prove to be a vital stepping stone for your company.
Cheshire East Council is committed to doing all it can to guide local businesses through the current economic climate: These events mark the continuation of these efforts and are a good way to learn how to boost your business.”

Janet Ellison-Jones, from Cheshire East Council’s procurement team, added: “Members of the procurement team are very much looking forward to meeting local business owners. We will be on hand to answer any questions relating to how companies can do business with Cheshire East.”
