Borough still means business this year

A BUSINESS networking club run by Eastbourne’s premier football club continues to thrive with more than 60 people attending its January meeting.

Local businessmen and women, representing both small firms and large multinationals, turned out at Priory Lane stadium’s large clubhouse for the Borough Means Business meeting on Wednesday (January 19).

Guest speaker Paul Maynard, from the football club’s solicitors Gaby Hardwicke, gave a fascinating insight into his role.

He also outlined to the membership how to become shareholders in the football club, which continues to ply its trade at the highest level of non-league football, the Blue Square Bet Premier, against the likes of Luton Town, Grimsby Town and Darlington.

Borough Means Business’s 2011 membership is now up to 110, more than 60 of whom regularly attend the informal and value-for-money business lunches.

For more information on the club, please contact Lorna Gosling or James Hopkins on 766265 option 3. The next Borough Means Business event will be held on February 16 at midday.
