We are welcoming membership applications from all businesses on and around the High Street, and from residents of Banstead that may have companies located elsewhere but are keen to see the village economy prosper and the High Street continue to improve.
About the Guild
The Banstead Business Guild is a newly formed association of businesses and business people who all have an interest in the ongoing success and improvement of Banstead High Street. We meet bi-monthly at a local venue, with the local councillor as Chair of the group, to discuss issues ranging from how to spend funding and Christmas lights to future improvements and local events. Meetings are friendly and informal with the opportunity for members to network with each other and find out more about other local businesses.
The group is concerned with considering how best to work with stakeholders to develop and deliver a plan both now and in the future, to ensure that the High Street is a place where businesses want to start and grow, individuals want to shop and spend leisure time and residents are proud to have at the heart of their community. Our ethos is very much that members collaborate and have not only a voice, but a real stake in the the delivery of activities that improve the High Street.
Sectors we Cover
We have a membership that covers a wide variety of sectors that all combine to make our High Street a vibrant place. We have supermarkets, clothing retail, delicatessens, accounts, solicitors, creative agencies, jewellers, natural therapies, business efficiency consultants, financial advisers, tradesmen, insurance brokers to name just some of our membership. In addition to this we also have the residents association, local rotary club and local sports clubs represented also. If you have an interest in Banstead and its High Street, we would welcome your input.
