GIN for Gosport business

By Chief Correspondent Rob Thomas

GOSPORT businesses facing various current economic challenges are being offered the opportunity to meet and discuss their situations with each other and to find out what support is available.

Now back to face-to-face, the next meeting of the Gosport Informal Network – GIN – is being held on Thursday, May 19, between 10am and 12 noon at Bakers Bar & Kitchen in Royal Clarence Marina.

The network has been operating since 2018 with the aims of providing a forum for local people to meet and discuss their experiences of starting and running their own business, and facilitating business-to-business contacts.

Its meetings are co-hosted by Gosport Borough Council and Enterprise South as part of their partnership to support local start-up and small businesses.

Enterprise South Business Adviser Sue Davitt told The Globe: “GIN is a really friendly (not at all stuffy) free event. Judging by the number of GIN regulars and the lovely feedback we get, we think you will make some good contacts as well as enjoying yourself!”

She added that those attending, “may also like to have a chat with me, your local Business Adviser and Ian Bridges, Principal Business Engagement Officer at Gosport Borough Council.”
