Business on the breakfast agenda

Steve Brine met with members of the local business community on Friday 5th April as he continues to take the temperature of the city’s trading environment.

The Winchester MP works hard to stay in close contact with businesses across Winchester & Chandler’s Ford, and he held a special breakfast briefing event at The Ivy to discuss a range of issues.

Steve said: “I was very grateful to everyone who came along and helped me to formulate my thinking about how the national situation is affecting local commerce.

“To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised at how robust our community clearly appears to be, and while there are local challenges and opportunities which the local council and Winchester BID are working hard on, this was a robust, honest and positive session.”
