What a great event – thank you very much to everyone who attended Friends of City on 26 March.  100 people joined us to network and meet new business contacts over a hot bacon roll and the feedback from the attendees has been extremely positive.

We are really looking forward to the next meeting as250 people have already booked in for the Friends of City Business Expo on Friday 26 April.  This is a chance for both long standing and new members to showcase their businesses and meet new customers and suppliers, and we have 31 stands booked across two floors, inside and outside.

We are expecting even more bookings, so don’t miss out on what will be one of Chelmsford’s biggest networking events of 2013 – book your place today!

So what do you need to know?

We get together once a month at Chelmsford City FC (Melbourne Park, Salerno Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 2EH), alternating between breakfast and lunchtime meetings.  The next event is the Business Expo on Friday 26 April from 12pm-3pm.

The meetings are free to attend – if you like us and you’d like to join up and support the club there is a great membership package which includes advertising space and a copy of the attendance list, but that’s up to you.  There’s plenty of free parking and food, tea and coffee is provided free of charge.  How’s that for great value?

The meetings are very informal – there are no bells or whistles and you don’t need to give a 60 second speech.  We have already taken lots of bookings, so we can guarantee you will meet a real mix of businesses – large and small.  This is a great opportunity to make new contacts and catch up with old friends in a relaxed environment.

If you’d like to come along

Either drop our Business Development Manager Aaron Desmond an email at:

Or give him a call on 01245 893404 or 07802 807197.
To keep things fair, we only allow up to 5 businesses from any trade or profession to attend, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you can’t attend this time

The meeting after next will be a breakfast on on Thursday 23 May from 7am-9am.

If you contact Aaron now, he will make sure you get a reminder.
Last but not least, if you know someone you think might be interested then please feel free to pass on these details.  The bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.
We look forward to seeing you there!
