FREE information, support and advice will be offered to businesses throughout the district at a series of special events.

As part of its ‘Open for Business’ initiative, Stratford District Council has teamed up with Warwickshire County Council and other partners to give existing and new businesses the chance to find out more about a host of issues.

Experts at the Business Matters Roadshow will be on hand to talk about subjects such as: access to finance, funding and grants, exporting, skills and training, apprenticeship opportunities, business growth and networking opportunities among others.

The first event will take place on Wednesday, March 11 from 7.30am to 9.30am at Warwick House in Southam with a second being held at Minerva Mill in Alcester from 5pm to 7.30pm on Tuesday, April 21.

District council enterprise spokesman, Maurice Howse, said: “The Business Matters Roadshow is being delivered following feedback from businesses who want us to provide them with more advice and support.

“We have partnered with some excellent business venues in our district, enlisted a team of experts and are pleased to provide this important opportunity to help ensure our local businesses know what is available to them.

“The events will also help support their aspirations and address their concerns.”
