Maria Miller MP attended the launch of the Basingstoke Business and Enterprise Forum at Absolutely Offices in Chineham.
Maria met with the Forum’s founders; Beryl Huntingdon, John Jervoise, Andrew Henderson and Pauline Hedges and approximately 20 Basingstoke Businesses.
The Forum is aimed at ensuring there is a regular dialogue between Basingstoke Businesses and Basingstoke’s political representatives. Maria addressed the group and answered questions on a wide range of topics.
Maria commented; “It was very encouraging to see so many Businesses attend the launch and discuss key concerns such as connectivity and sustainability. I am continually meeting local entrepreneurs who have successfully started up and grown their business here in Basingstoke. The Forum aims to meet regularly and welcome Ministers and senior political figures who are keen to engage with businesses.”
