A busy year of achievement

It's been a busy year for Wealden Business Group, with a strong trend of business leads between members, new communications initiatives to reach out to the wider business community, fundraising for charity and forming a closer working relationship with Tenterden & District Chamber of Commerce.

During the year, the group launched a bright new website, the first in a strategy of online communications including a programme of regular postings on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

The Group held its annual charity dinner at the London Beach Hotel which raised £4,000. Topped up by the proceeds of weekly collections at the networking breakfasts, it meant the Group was able to present a record annual charity cheque of £6,570 to Parkinson's UK, Ashford.

In March, lawyer Justin Nelson was elected chairman, succeeding financial controller Dee Bateman. As part of its offering to help members hone their business skills, the Group held courses on Excel spreadsheets and LinkedIn.

Social activity included regular meetings of the Group's Curry Club and an outing to Dungeness Power Station. Plans are in train to organise further fundraising activity for the current Charity of the Year, the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
