Cou­ple’s mu­sic firm grouped with 100 club

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

A prom­i­nent Ash­ford busi­ness has been high­lighted as one of the coun­try’s top 100 busi­nesses, with its own­ers about to rub shoul­ders with the Chan­cel­lor of the Ex­che­quer.

Right Track Mu­sic (RTM), based on the town’s Hen­wood in­dus­trial es­tate, was named in The Daily Tele­graph as one of its high­lighted com­pa­nies in the lead-up to Small Busi­ness Satur­day on De­cem­ber 5.

As a fi­nal­ist, RTM will join the Small Busi­ness Satur­day team at a re­cep­tion in Down­ing Street with Ge­orge Os­borne.

The busi­ness is a well­re­spected shop and school for all things mu­si­cal, in­clud­ing mu­sic tu­ition, re­hearsal space and record­ing rooms.

Su Bai­ley, co-owner of RTM with hus­band Chris, said: “We re­cently had the hon­our of the mayor pre­sent­ing Chris with a cer­tifi­cate cel­e­brat­ing 20 years of ser­vice to Ash­ford.

“To be a Small­Biz100 fi­nal­ist in the same year is bril­liant.

“Run­ning a busi­ness can be hard work, but ev­ery once in a while these things come along and make it so re­ward­ing.

“As a small busi­ness we be­lieve it is so im­por­tant to sup­port small, lo­cal busi­nesses.

“Not only does it drive your lo­cal econ­omy, you usu­ally get bet­ter cus­tomer ser­vice, re­ceive face-to-face ser­vice and we en­joy vis­it­ing other small shops.”

RTM is hold­ing an open day and fundraiser on Satur­day as part of the Royal Mars­den Hos­pi­tal Can­cer Char­ity’s The Big C Chal­lenge.
