A second free networking event will take place at the Boathouse Business Centre in Wisbech on this month following a successful launch event in November.

The event, on January 20, is primarily aimed at businesses but is open to all members of the local community.

Attendees will be able to discuss any professional or business challenges and opportunities with representatives from Fenland District Council, the Department for Work & Pensions, and The Skills Service – a programme that works with schools and businesses across Fenland to help students develop business skills.

The new series of get-togethers is organised by Fenland District Council and its economic development partner, Opportunity Peterborough, in conjunction with Link4Growth, a not for profit organisation helping to connect people in communities across the country.

Peter Richardson, Fenland District Council’s inward investment manager, said: “We’re pleased the launch of this new series of networking events was so well received – that’s testament to the desire to foster collaboration and the sharing of ideas in Fenland.
