A NEW business networking group in Chipping Campden hosted its launch last month.

The Campden Business Forum held the event on Friday, November 16, in the Cotswold House Hotel.

The forum welcomed 90 likeminded individuals and business owners who met to discuss ways they could help promote a vibrant commercial environment in and around the town.

Two presentations were given - one by Sir John Armitt, chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority, and councillor Chris Roberts, co-ordinator of the Fairford and Lechlade Business Club.

Membership of the Campden Business Forum is available to anyone who has a business interest in the town or the surrounding area.

It will be hosting bi-monthly meetings with the next one planned for Tuesday, February 5, at Chipping Campden School..
