Weybridge Town Business Group

Local Businesses working together and with local groups and bodies to:

  • Improve the town centre and promote Weybridge as an attractive place to regularly visit for shopping, entertainment and services.
  • Build successful business relationships
  • Encourage key stakeholders to support growth of our businesses

The Local Community Needs A Thriving Weybridge Town Centre

Weybridge businesses and the local community have a shared interest in ensuring the town centre thrives, so that it is an attractive place to visit and can offer a good range of shops, entertainment and services.

By creating an environment in which local businesses thrive, entrepreneurs are rewarded for their investment, initiatives, risks and work. This secures the long-term prospects for the town and encourages further investment and jobs instead of a decline and abandoned town centre.

Successful Weybridge businesses will be able to provide local jobs and generate a healthy local economy. The mutual benefits for the community and businesses will make the town a more pleasant place to live and work. We would ask all local businesses to take up the opportunities offered by the initiatives of the business group and to enthusiatically join us.

“Perfect! You guys are rocking the spirit of what a community craft fair should be like! Too many people have corporate-ised it these days.
Thank you”
