The Basepoint operated Newhaven Enterprise Centre recently hosted its monthly business-to-business networking event, ‘The Networking Hub’. The meeting was a great success with local business people taking the opportunity to network, meet new people, generate new business – and also provided a valuable source of research for The University of Chichester’s business project.
Basepoint Eastcote has recently held a joint charity craft event with the Stirling Road Day Centre, which raised approximately £200 for the centre.
Attendees at the Stirling Road Day Centre made a selection of homemade jewellery and Christmas cards to sell at Basepoint Eastcote to raise money to support the services the centre provides.
Centre Manager, Karen Williams and her assistant, Anne Moore (Mrs Claus!) were really pleased with a good turnout for their Licensees' Christmas lunch which was held at the centre recently. Excellent food, washed down by Bucks Fizz was all that was needed to create a warm and seasonal atmosphere. Those that attended said they thoroughly enjoyed the event and the opportunity to meet fellow licensees. It was a fun and noisy event with Christmas music and our very own visit by Mrs Claus who carried out the Secret Santa!”
