  7. An interesting meeting on Friday at the Federation of Small Businesses event with ten MP's and representatives from the major banks on the regions banking concerns, credit easing and issues that businesses are facing with banks every day. Covered by several TV stations it was a topic with questions from businesses owners that caused some of the banks discomfort to face and sent several MP's away with queries and requests to press the banks further on the unfair nature of many of the banks policies.

  9. Has the Business Forum thought of a Town Loyalty Card Scheme, were customers get a benefit from shopping locally?

  10. Great to see Business Forum members putting up the lights on Sunday ready for this Friday evening. Shame some of the National Retailers in town are not having lights or playing their part?

    Business Forum should be pleased with how well you have done!
