Overton Business Association will hold monthly networking sessions to support small businesses

A BUSINESS association has announced plans for monthly networking meetings for small businesses.

At a workshop in March, the Overton Business Association (OBA) called on representatives from businesses, sports groups and churches to explore opportunities for better networking.

Sponsorship of local events and potential collaborations were also discussed.

OBA committee member Martin Fielder said: “Overton has always had a strong community spirit and the OBA is committed to supporting all efforts to keep it alive.”

The OBA has since discussed other plans at a general meeting held on April 5.

Topics included how to provide work experience for students at Testbourne Community School, with the employment of locals seen as a high priority.

The OBA plans to hold monthly networking meetings: the first will be on May 5 at 7.30pm at the Red Lion Pub, Overton.

All Overton and area businesses, members or not, are welcome.
