Happy Christmas to our HHBA Community

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for all you have done to contribute to the HHBA over this past year. The HHBA is never without support which includes attending meetings, recommendations to other businesses and sponsorship. You are all very wonderful.

Year on year we seem to strengthen and grow and continue to support one another. Our aim is to be accessible to all local businesses and to remain that for as long as I’m chair.

I’m sure there is barely one member who hasn’t at some point reached out to Sue or I to enquire/ask for help/offer help. Hopefully we have been there to help you or at the very least point you in the direction of where to seek support.

Next year’s event calendar is already packed with great speakers, new venues and sponsors. Do pop onto the website https://hhba.co.uk/event-directory/ and check and get those dates in the diary.

I’d also like to announce some changes we’ve recently had within the committee.

Gary Smith and Mark Elwell have decided to step down from their roles as Treasurer and Vice Chair. Both Gary and Mark were instrumental during the covid days, and they really helped in getting the HHBA back on track and supported. I wish them both well and look forward to seeing them at meetings.

Taking over as Treasurer is the familiar face of Robert Carpenter from Management Inspirations and ultra organised Verity Eunson-Hickey from Tisshaws Solicitors as Vice Chair. I really am looking forward to working with these guys in 2024.

Thank you so very much to all the HHBA committee that do so much behind the scenes and a final thank you to Sue our Business Manager to whom we are indebted to for giving everything to the HHBA that she does. Sue –you are marvellous!!!

Finally, I would like to wish everyone a restful Christmas and New Year.

Sue and I look forward to greeting you at a meeting in 2024.

Kind regards

Clare Jones

HHBA Chair
