Tollers Kempston Coffee Morning June 2019
Another successful meeting of local business people was held at the King William Pub in Kempston.
It is surprising how many businesses there are in Kempston and the surrounding areas. Through our coffee mornings, which we have been hosting since 2017, we have become acquainted with local business people who have in turn become acquainted with each other. Our group has grown and hopefully will continue to grow as does Kempston. There is so much new development in the area, not only housing development but industry too.
We are fortunate to be supported by the Mayor of Kempston, Carl Meader and Councillor Kay Burley, both of whom are very prominent in Kempston town.
Martin Quince is publisher of the local news magazine “Kempston Calling”. This is a free monthly publication and is an invaluable source of information and news in the area.
Our friends from the Bedford Daycare Hospice are also regular attendees and we continue to support them and have recently raised £1,989 for the charity from a very successful “Make a Will” campaign.
Our very good neighbour Pippa Wilkinson from A.L. & G. Abbott Funeral Directors is always happy to support our events. The firm is possibly one of the oldest businesses in Kempston, having been established in 1870 by the “Abbott” family.
Also attending this event were:-
Leanne Benson from Aston Charles Estate Agents
Mark Ireland of Lyndhurst Financial Management
Paul Kamlesh of CopyBox
Adrian Spurrell of The Red Thread Partnership
Yvonne Prudham from Bedfordshire Registration Service
Ryan and Bim from Shires Funerals
Sue Wilson – Bedford Health
Julia Brightman – Crème Brew Lait
Of course, we would like to thank Jo, Landlady of the King William IV for providing us with a venue and fabulous coffee.
