Winslow news: Town’s new facilities get thumbs-up

WINSLOW’S Chamber of Trade had its first meeting of the year in the newly refurbished St Laurence Room on Monday.

Secretary Helen Knight said: “We were all really impressed with the new facilities. We had the newly created upstairs area (Lowrey suite) and it was really well kitted out and perfect for small to medium meetings.”

The chamber of trade currently has 24 members, and discussed ways of bringing in more.

It also discussed how the chamber can interact with trade organisations in Buckingham. Contact has already been made with the Buckingham Business Club.

A new sub-group was set up to come up with ideas to help increase the number of visitors to Winslow.

Mrs Knight said: “We had a really good attendance with a couple of new faces so hopefully the membership will go up even more.”
