Inspiring Surrey Hills Businesses are Showcased in Enterprising ‘Power of Place’ Event.

The High Sheriff attended the Surrey Hills Enterprises “Power of Place” event at Wotton House this week. Tim said “It was inspiring to meet such a range of small businesses and larger businesses based in the beautiful Surrey Hills. Businesses ranged from sparkling wine, to chocolates, to hotels, to mountain bikes, gin and much more. There was a great energy in the room and it is clear that Surrey Hills Enterprises are making a real positive difference and are now a force to be reckoned with.”

Organised by Surrey Hills Enterprises, the Community Interest Company that works with local businesses to support the rural economy and promote, protect and enhance the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), ‘The Power of Place’ trade show is the ideal platform to help businesses meet the demand to ‘support local’ and increase the supply of local, quality and sustainable products.
