Bangor Business Forum Open Meeting

Hi everyone,
I received this open letter so that I could post it on the Bangor Blog. So here it is in it's entirety. I hope you will all be able to attend.

Over the next six years the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Union will be making a substantial investment in the economy of Bangor under the Mon Menai Scheme.

The Bangor Business Forum invites all businesses operating in Bangor to send a
senior representative to attend a special meeting where they can learn more about the scheme.

Dafydd Hughes, the Assembly officer leading the Mon Menai scheme will give a presentation on the investment proposals being explored and to listen to suggestion and ideas.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday 14th Aug st at 6.00pm in Penrhyn Hall, Ffordd Gwynedd, Bangor. To enable those attending to come straight from work there will be light refreshments available from 5pm, giving the business community a rare opportunity to network.

It would be helpful to the organisers of this event if you could indicate if you would like to attend, Please send an email to advising of your intention to attend, or if you are unable to attend if you you would like to receive an email with any information coming out of the meeting.

The Bangor Retail forum was formed in 2005 to consider initiatives required to improve the retail business environment. It has functioned as a useful liaison group bringing together business people trading in Bangor with officers from relevant Gwynedd Council departments, community leaders and the police.

Recently in response to the opportunities offered by the Mon Menai Scheme, the Forum has changed its name to the Bangor Business Forum with the intention of becoming a constituted membership organisation. The Forum will be sending out a newsletter and inviting applications for membership in due course.

For further information contact June Marshall (secretary) on 01248 370 955 or email
