Tea, Cakes and Business Chat Success

The Team from Boost Lancashire came to Fylde yesterday with their Roadshow; the aim of the afternoon was to highlight the services of business support available, free of charge, to any business, at any stage of development and other services should they require them.  Business consultants, yoga and pilates instructors, retailers and start-ups were among those in attendance.

Boost Lancashire support for businesses, at whatever stage is being funded by Fylde Council’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund, a government-allocated fund which is intended to reduce inequalities between communities, as part of the Government’s wider “levelling up” agenda. 

The afternoon saw business owners view a presentation by Growth Lancashire’s Janet Doolan and Debbie Chinn and heard how Chef Raf Perussi had sought business support in the early stage of his new business after coming out of hospitality as an experienced Pastry and Sous Chef, and the significant benefits and knowledge this had provided him.

Later, over a cup of tea and very special cakes, the delegates were then able to network with each other, the Boost Team, Fylde Councils Business Engagement and Town Centres Officer, and the advisors from the North West Aerospace Alliance and the Chamber Low Carbon teams. Everyone was delighted by the selection of amazing and very delicious cakes and tarts from Beurre Patisserie, all handmade by Raf himself; his new patisserie will be opening in St Annes in early Summer.

The roadshow then led into the St Annes Event Square update, where several more businesses joined the delegates in asking the Fylde Council Project Team about the plans and viewing the latest images, and discussing local hot business topics.

More updates on the Event Square will be held in the coming months, so watch our news section.
