What We Achieved in 2016

Askew Business Network look back at this year's highlights

Since its formation in 2010 Askew Business Network (ABN) has become a popular and much respected networking group, benefitting a wide range of small and larger businesses in the area as well as the residents who use their services.

During the last year ABN’s activities have included:

A fun speed networking event to introduce local business to each other;
An informative talk by a representative from The Federation of Small Businesses;
An informal networking lunch at a local pub on the last Tuesday of each month;
Supported the May and Christmas community events in Askew Road, organised in conjunction with Hammersmith Community Gardens Association (HCGA);
Raised £165 for HCGA with cake stall at the May event;
Together with HCGA arranged two pub quizzes at the Orchard Tavern;
Held another popular summer party at the Glasshouses in Ravenscourt Park;
Issued a monthly on-line newsletter including local events;
Increased mailing list to nearly 500 recipients;
Published more entries in our business directory on the ABN web site;
Started a local business feature on our website;
Welcomed new committee members.
Thanks to everyone for their support throughout the year.
