Tattenhall Business Alliance enjoy a fiery evening at Bolesworth Castle!

The regular meetings of the Tattenhall Business Alliance group have developed into 'not to be missed' events.
The latest of these was held, courtesy of Diana and Nina Barbour, back in early December, when members were met with a rather unexpected welcome in the form of two fire engines and their crew! One, a very special vintage model, the other its newest and much larger version. This was all part of a very interesting talk from the evening's main speaker, Assistant Chief Fire Officer for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, Richard Ost.

Richard outlined the County's vision and strategic plans, together with details of trials and new developments in their education and preventative work. He also shared a broad range of statistics highlighting the nature and trends of incidents currently being handled by his teams.

Other guest speakers were:
Matthew Morris, (Bolesworth's Estate Manager) who shared the history of the now very impressive 6,000 acre Estate and Alison Sharp (Estate Business Manager) who talked through some of the plans for next year's 'Car Fest'. Members were delighted to hear that Chris Evans is particularly keen to involve local businesses wherever possible. Any businesses wishing to offer their services or market themselves at Car Fest, are urged to make contact with Robert Dancy of the Alliance. More details will follow.

Phillip Illingworth of Illingworth Seddon, then took everyone through a range of important pension matters currently facing businesses, all of which generated a lot of interest and referrals. Philip can be contacted on Phillip.Illingworth@sjpp.co.uk or 01829 771 707.

Bolesworth's warm and very kind hospitality made a particularly fitting location for the event and gave plenty of opportunity for members to meet new people and share details of their businesses.

Prior to this, in September, we enjoyed a fascinating event when members were privileged to have first sight of the new Cheshire Equine Clinic at Chowley Oak. Owner, Matthew O'Donnell, shared his fascinating journey as an equine specialist working with top breeders across the world including tales of his time looking after the horses at the Beijing Olympics. He also shared his inspiring plans for the centre and demonstrated of some of the highly technical instruments he uses, some of which were his own design.

Do come and join us for our next event which will be held at the Barbour Institute on Wednesday 9th March 2016, 6-8pm.

Any members who would like to host an event or have the opportunity to share details of their business please contact Robert Dancy on robert@djmglobal.com or 07789 176 045.
