The Local Community Needs A Thriving Weybridge Town Centre
Weybridge businesses and the local community have a shared interest in ensuring the town centre thrives, so that it is an attractive place to visit and can offer a good range of shops, entertainment and services.
By creating an environment in which local businesses thrive, entrepreneurs are rewarded for their investment, initiatives, risks and work.
This secures the long-term prospects for the town and encourages further investment and jobs instead of a decline and abandoned town centre.
Successful Weybridge businesses will be able to provide local jobs and generate a healthy local economy.
The mutual benefits for the community and businesses will make the town a more pleasant place to live and work.
We would ask all local businesses to take up the opportunities offered by the initiatives of the business group and to enthusiatically join us.

Feedback from Pinch of This (Market Stall)
"I hope you enjoyed the gf quiche and treats and the rest of your day.. I just thought I'd drop you a short note with some thoughts from today.
First of all thank you very much! It was great, in both sales and chatting with the locals. I know how hard putting on an event can be and to be honest from where I was stood it looked pretty effortless. I know of course it was far from effortless so well done to you and the entire "behind-the-scenes" team.
I thought the organisation was good, even with the small hiccup this morning with the pitch
confusion. It's often the case with markets I've attended and it is always something that can
happen regardless the of the processes you put in place. I thought you managed the situation brilliantly.
Finally, I heard a lot of positive feedback about the day and especially about the market. I had a lot of people ask me if the market was going to be a permanent fixture and all were adamant that Weybridge would benefit from one.
Good luck with all your plans and do let me know if you manage to secure a permanent market as we'd love to support it. Looking forward to working together at the next event.
All the best"
Mark Renshaw
Feedback from Glenn Dearlove, Castle Wildish
"Thank you for all your hard work and assistance regarding the queen's crowns.
I felt that the children had a great time and the whole event was a tremendous success.
Once again, best wishes and thank you."

Feedback from All About Weybridge
"Congratulations on putting on a great community event on Saturday, you must be well pleased with the success!
I asked Anna-Marina for some photos of the event which I have added as a gallery to the Party on the Green page, as well as the photos I took.
I am doing some social media publicity for after the event, using the photos to generate further
interest."

Feedback from Anila's Sauces Stall
"The market went well and it worked.
Although some of our stalls were on the pavement and some off and I believe this needs to be co-ordinated so that all the stalls looks evenly set out.
The customers enjoyed the variety. As there was plenty of food to eat sales on our snacks were slow but overall takings were reasonable.
I have booked the other markets as you know so well done to you and your team and look forward to the next one.
Kind regards"
Anila
Feedback from The Vine King Stall
"Just wanted to offer our congratulations and thanks for all the work you guys put in to make
yesterday's Party on the Green such a success.
I certainly got a lot of positive feed back from
customers as well as some of the stallholders.
Some of the public thought that it would be great if you could do this every Saturday !!
Anyway well done."
David & Marta, The Vine King, Weybridge
