The Wealden Business Group

The Wealden Business Group is a Tenterden-based business networking group, meeting weekly to help members maximise business opportunities, exchange information and arrange social and charity events.

Wealden Business Group announces new programme

Wealden Business Group has announced its programme for the coming 12 months.

New initiatives include staging four WBG Workshops - two hour sessions for members, guests and potential new members, on practical topics. Held quarterly, the first will focus on understanding and managing Excel spreadsheets.

Additional work will go into increasing the group's online profile, while plans are being formulated for at least two major social events in aid of the group's nominated 2016/17 charity, the Motor Neurone Disease Association. In recent years, WBG has raised more than £25,000 for good causes.

Comments recently-elected WBG chairman Justin Nelson: "Our objective is to grow the group both in terms of membership and our reputation as the leading professional networking organisation in the area, generating business referrals and support for our members".

The Wealden Business Group has presented a cheque for £6,570 to the Ashford branch of Parkinson’s UK – a record sum raised in one year for the Group’s nominated charity.

Christine Endersby, vice chair of Parkinson’s UK Ashford branch, thanked WBG members at their weekly breakfast meeting at The Little Silver Hotel, Tenterden, and said the money would be divided between supporting the branch’s activities and research projects into the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

WBG raised the money through a series of events, including a weekly collection, a Race Night, and a black tie dinner at The London Beach Hotel, Tenterden – the hotel contributed more than £2,600 to the overall total.
