I'm very proud to live in a town like Marple where businesses with character compete effectively against out of town superstores, malls, and seem to do well in attracting shoppers back into the town.
There's an event soon where local business people are looking to pool resources and share knowledge and information. I hope it's a great success. It's being held on Wednesday, October 17 from 6 pm to 9 pm at Marple Golf Club, where 16 business suppliers will be on hand to give business improvement advice to members. Exhibitors will be from the fields of marketing, professional services, IT and business services.
There's a link to their website here.
