Networking event shows that town means business
9:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
LOCAL businesses and companies took to Andover High Street on 6 September for another instalment of the town’s business fair.
Building on the popularity of the Retailers’ Out and About days and the runaway success of the first Andover Business Fair in June, this second business fair again brought businesses to the town.
The leader of the council, Cllr Ian Carr, said: “The fair is a great networking opportunity with the aim to encourage people to think about Andover and all it has to offer in a different way, and to show their full support for the wide range of excellent local businesses in the area.”
More than 30 local businesses were in attendance at the fair, which was brought together by the council’s High Street Events working group, which was created as a result of the Andover Summit, and is part of a wider programme designed to breathe new life into the High Street and surrounding areas.
Lisa Adams, of Sassykids, said: “This is normally a really worthwhile day and today has been no different. It’s a long day on the market, it started slowly but certainly picked up as the day went on.”
Doug Gregg, of The Cake Hub, in Ludgershall, said: “It was a great opportunity to expand our identity and presence to Andover, which isn’t always easy being in Ludgershall. We have had a lot of interest and handed out lots of business cards, so we are very happy.”
