We are now taking bookings for the final Friends of City meeting of 2014 which is a lunchtime event on Thursday 18th December.  If you haven’t been before, why not come and see why Friends of City is so popular and join 100 guests meeting new people and developing new business relationships.  The group is flourishing as we welcome new visitors at every meeting from a range of business sectors across Chelmsford, Essex and even into London.

We are looking forward to helping you promote your businesses and join the many attendees who have won new clients and contracts over a cup of tea and a buffet.  And the best bit of all – attending this great event won’t cost you a penny!

What 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 meeting is a lunchtime event on Thursday 18th December from 12pm – 2pm.  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.  The meetings are very popular, 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.

How to book in

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.  Aaron will add contact details of everyone who books in to the attendance list which is available to you if you become a member.

Last but not least, if you know someone you think might be interested then please feel free to send them these details.  The bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.  Please also feel free to share the details to your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and other social media contacts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us!
