A meeting was held at the Seven Stars in Totnes on October 18th to combine elements of the AGM with a general information even members wanted the FSB to provide.
Devon Chair Andrew Postlethwaite and South Hams Chair Alison Theaker attended. No members attended, but three non-members came and there was a productive conversation about what small businesses could benefit from. Benefits of FSB membership were discussed.
As a result, Alison Theaker was asked to remain as the South Hams representative to the Devon region, for both regional and policy meetings. If other members come forward to assist, it will be possible to run events in the branch area.
As a member of the FSB national Women's Entrepreneurship Taskforce she is planning to organise events supporting their agenda of helping more women into business.
