As it moves into its third year, Helston Business Improvement Partnership has a new town team in place.
The newly-elected chair is Chris Ring, who runs a branch of the Costa Coffee franchise in the town.
Wendy Radford-Gaby of independent software development company, Negys, has been named vice chair, while Andrew Ferrie, of Atkins Ferrie Chartered Accountants, will continue as treasurer and add the responsibility of secretary to his role.
Helston BIP was established in 2012 as a not-for-profit membership organisation set up to represent and provide support to all the town’s businesses.
Ring has been an active member of Helston BIP since its inception and has firm ideas about how the partnership should evolve.
He said: “Helston is a wonderful town full of proactive and passionate business people. As a team, supported by the town council and HBIP Development Officer, Shirley Moralee, we want to carry on with the current projects, spread the word about Helston BIP, work towards wider inclusion and encourage more involvement from all businesses in the town.
“Personally, I want to become more familiar with all business owners in Helston – including those not members of the BIP – to find out exactly what they want.”
