Business Club Dinner a great success.

We recently held our annual Business Club End of Season Dinner in the stunning 1875 Club.

Over 60 Members of the local business community were on hand to enjoy a networking session followed by an excellent two-course dinner.

After dessert, those present were treated to a humorous and informative question and answer session with Club Captain Tom Abell and all-rounder Peter Trego.


Following the event, which was held in in conjunction with Clarke Willmott, PKF Francis Clark and Somerset Life, SCCC Head of Commercial Sales Sam McIntyre said: “It has been another excellent year for our Business Club and I would like to thank all those who have supported the initiative. It was great to see so many people come together this year and make connections.

“The Business Club was introduced in order to help bring the local business community together and according to the feedback that we have received it is clear that it has done just that.”

Tansy Maggs, Marketing & Media Manager for One Step Recruitment, was at the event and said: “The Business Club dinner was the first for One Step Recruitment since becoming the Official Recruitment Partner for SCCC.  We had a really enjoyable, relaxed evening with interesting company, excellent food & service and an engaging host in Spencer Bishop.

“The Q&A with Tom and Peter flew by and we were impressed by how articulate, engaging, humorous and relevant these two were. Having the delegate list in advance meant we were able to connect with local contacts on other tables during the networking times of the evening without feeling forced to do so by an event agenda.”
