The Saffron Walden Town team is launching ‘Talk Business’, a coffee get-together for town centre businesses.

These informal meetings over coffee will provide an opportunity for the team to discuss ways in which they can work together with the business community to help boost town centre trade and increase shopping footfall.

Petra Slack, chairman of the Saffron Walden Town Team, said: “This is the chance for us to discuss what events are coming up and to encourage local businesses to get involved and participate. It’s very much an informal gathering and we would love for as many local businesses to come along.

“We are also hoping that lots of new ideas and initiatives will be put forward which we can help deliver collectively for the greater good of the town and its trade.”

The monthly meeting with take place at various locations in the town centre – the first one is scheduled for Thursday (February 20) from 8-9.30am at the Mocha Cafe on Central Arcade.

The first meeting agenda will cover: hanging baskets; independent retailer competitions; the Shop Watch Scheme; Easter promotions; and town events especially the Market Charter commemoration, the carnival and the Tour de France.

  • it would be so nice if the towns traders heard about the teams plans before the newspapers. maybe the chairwomen could stop freely promoting her business and do something for the greater good of the town. also interesting to see the meeting is held at the other chairwomen's business. More free advertising anyone ??
