West Oxon Council hosts Big Breakfast Club
This week West Oxfordshire District Council hosted a Witney Big Breakfast Club business meeting at the Council's Elmfield offices. The venue was chosen so that over 40 local businesses could see, and hear about, all the renewable energy saving devices incorporated in the design of this unique 'green' office building, which is one of the first of its kind in the UK. The businesses were encouraged to make use of the public facilities as a place to meet clients in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
The Witney Big Breakfast Club was formed by about a dozen local companies to help each other develop business interests within the community. The Club hosts a monthly “Bigger” Breakfast which is open to all.
Guests are made welcome and are entitled, but not pressured, to participate.
The Council's Economic Development Team works closely with business organisations and clubs such as the Big Breakfast Club. The Team supports the established business community and welcomes new firms into the District. Working with a range of support agencies, they can provide many services to business.
Martyn Stacey from the Witney Big Breakfast Club acknowledged the work done by the Council and recommended that Club members visit www.westoxon.gov.uk/business saying, “The Council website is an excellent resource for business information.”
Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said, “We are fortunate that our economy in West Oxfordshire is so buoyant. There is a lot of good work being done through gatherings such as the Big Breakfast Club meetings. We are delighted to be hosting this meeting and offering our support.”
Martyn Stacey went on to say, “People can just come along, have a good time and meet other business
people. It seems to work as everyone keeps coming back!” The next Big Breakfast Club meeting is on
Wednesday 17th August at 7.15 am at the Masonic Hall on Church Green in Witney. See their website at www.witneybbc.co.uk for booking information.
