Tuesday, 18 April, 2006

David Ruffley is the guest speaker at a meeting of the Stowmarket Chamber of Commerce on Friday, 21 April at 12.30 p.m. at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket.

David will speak to Chamber members about his vision for the future of Stowmarket and the local and national economy, including the effect of Gordon Brown's recent Budget on local businesses.

In turn, David will receive an update from the Chamber on the progress being made to regenerate Stowmarket.

David said: 'Stowmarket has great economic potential. I am doing all I can to encourage the redevelopment of brownfield sites in the town so that valuable space can be brought back into profitable use. The expansion of Stowmarket Chamber of Commerce since my last visit is testimony to the faith local business people have in Stowmarket as an area in which to do business. We have a valuable resource in local people. We need to do all we can to nurture new businesses.'
