Networking group marks first anniversary

A BUSINESS networking group in Sonning Common has celebrated its first anniversary.

The Sonning Common Business Collaboration marked the occasion with an event at the Butcher’s Arms pub in Blounts Court Road on Monday attended by 25 representatives of businesses in and around the village.

Kathryn Willis, who runs Kathryn Fell Photography and launched the group, said: “This was our biggest turnout. It’s nice to come full circle with the regular faces as well as welcoming some new ones.” The group meets at the pub every six weeks and a guest speaker talks about topics such as social media and websites.

Mrs Willis, of Churchill Crescent, said: “The idea is to promote businesses in Sonning Common and the surrounding villages to pull the local business community together.Next we are hoping to create a website where businesses pay a small fee and work in collaboration to support each other and recommend each other to friends and neighbours.”
