Growth Hub March 2019 News


Listen or talk at the Growth Hub!
Hello from the Cirencester Growth Hub

Supporting local businesses is part of our DNA here at Cirencester Growth Hub – chop us in half, and we have Made in Gloucestershire written through us like a stick of rock.

And actually, that food analogy isn’t a bad one, because one area where we offer support is to Cirencester’s and Gloucestershire’s thriving food and drink sector.

Once a month, among the many events we run at Cirencester Growth Hub – and all free to attend – we hold ‘Let’s Graze’. This is a networking event where one local food producer and one local drink producer get to showcase their products. It gives them the chance to introduce their food/drink to a wider audience, and the attendees get to network with fellow business people and sample the food and drink on offer.

We’ve invited a wide variety of producers: from Severn Snacks, which makes pheasant jerky, to British Polo Gin, whose drink is organic; from Golden Sheep Coffee, to the healthy cake producer Fitbakes.

Michael Rickatson, of Golden Sheep Coffee, said: “Let’s Graze was a great opportunity to present our coffee, and we had some great feedback and advice. Our coffee is now served at Cirencester Growth Hub.”

Organic Gin
Like the sound of Let’s Graze? Why not come along to our next event, from 4-5pm on March 21, where attendees will be able to sample wares from two more fantastic Gloucestershire producers: caterer Relish and wine retailer When in Rome.

We have lots of other free events going on in March, from three-hour workshops to one-hour Spotlight sessions with experts. We also offer free, one-to-one business advice, from our expert business navigators. Use of the coworking space can be on a pay-as-you go or membership basis.

Cirencester Growth Hub, next to the Royal Agricultural University, is part of the wider Gloucestershire Growth Hub network. For more information about Cirencester Growth Hub, visit https://www.thegrowthhub.biz/cirencester-growth-hub, email cirencester@thegrowthhub.biz or call 01285 889850.
