Free business breakfast and tea for local firms next Thursday

Businesses in Hastings can enjoy a taste of things to come at two free events on Thursday (November 6).

The Own Grown project, in partnership with Hastings Borough Council and Sussex Coast College, will be hosting a free business breakfast at 8–9.45am at Webbe’s Restaurant at Rock-a-Nore and a business tea 5-7pm at The Love Café in Norman Road.

Cllr Peter Chowney, the council’s lead member for regeneration and deputy leader, said: “These two events will provide information on a wide range of fantastic opportunities that are currently available to businesses. Hastings businesses cater for a huge number of tourists each year, and now with tailored funding and training to support them the sky can truly be the limit. The events are free to attend and include a social media masterclass from Talkativeonline, information on funding opportunities to grow your business, a chance to pledge to Own Grown and help better prepare young people for work.” Businesses interested in attending should email or call 451795 by today (Friday, October 31).
