Group launched for small businesses

An informal group aimed at owners of small businesses in Cramlington is being launched.

Paul Reynolds, owner of Renown Estate Agents, is starting the group in the town to provide a forum to discuss issues of mutual interest and provide a much needed opportunity to network and promote each particular enterprise in the town.

Mr Reynolds launched the idea on the Facebook page of Renow.

He said there was a great response from local enterprises including carpet cleaners, electrical contractors, builders, shop owners and all varities of trades based within the town to the proposal.

Mr Reynolds said he now intends to arrange a venue in Cramlington, probably one weekday evening during August to get the ball rolling on the new forum.

“The idea is to keep things very informal and relaxed,” he said.

“We think that small businesses may benefit from a regular opportunity to network and share ideas with each other.”

Anyone who is interested in coming along can email Mr Reynolds on or call (01670) 730073 for more information.
