Business Runnymede was established in 1998, to bring together the:
- Local business community
- Three local Chambers of Commerce
- Surrey Police, schools, colleges
- Borough Council
in order to tackle issues affecting business across Runnymede.
Peak hour congestion was straining the local road network, which led to Business Runnymede pioneering a distinctive Yellow Bus Scheme which helped reduce traffic. The scheme now has seven buses serving local secondary schools.
We introduced the Loyalty Card Scheme to encourage local shopping and to keep our high streets busy and vibrant in the changing retail environment.
We hold breakfast forums throughout the year covering a wide range of topics, with the aim of bringing local companies together.
The vast majority of these forums are free, with sponsorship coming from local businesses who wish to make others aware of their activities. If you wish to sponsor a Business Runnymede forum, please contact us here.
Regardless of the size or sector of your business, networking is a valuable and essential tool to support each other and create new contacts.
To find out more about our activities, sign up to our Business Runnymede newsletter here. If you are a business owner or director, you may also like to enter your company in the Business Runnymede directory here.
We do not ask for a membership fee to join. We want your support in making Runnymede an even better location for business and enterprise.
