IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT BUSINESS VILLAGE
With great reluctance, we have decided to mothball Business Village from October 2020.
Attendance has been disappointing in recent weeks, particularly since September when we introduced the small £5 booking fee – a move we had to make, to ensure BV covers its costs.
If there seems to be enough genuine interest, we will consider reviving Business Village in the New Year. So if you’d like to see BV resurrected, please let us know, and subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates.
Over and out for now.
Hew, Jo and Martin
