Firms get chance to come together
The Rutherglen/ Cambuslang Business Network is to hold its second meeting of 2015 next month.
Since being launched in 2013, the organisation has given local firms the chance to come together in a central location, and meet with each other, and in the past, firms have made new business contacts on their own doorsteps, supporting each other.
The next local business network event will take place on Friday, August 28.
Thanks to Clyde Gateway the event is completely free to attend, as they are sponsoring it, allowing for free tea and coffee, as well as sausage and bacon rolls.
The network’s Gary Hosie, from PTS Clean, said: “For those of you who haven’t been along before, the meetings are generally well attended, averaging around 60 delegates, from a wide range of local businesses, local government, organisations and charities.
“The format is relaxed and informal, with focus on local networking and a wealth of local business information and support is also on offer from Clyde Gateway, the Department for Work and Pensions, Business Gateway, South Lanarkshire Council, the local MP and MSP, to name but a few.
“All local businesses are welcome to attend, and no registration is necessary, but please email your name and contact number if you are intending on coming along, primarily to ensure there is a hot roll with your name on it, and so we can let you know of any changes.”
The network held their last meeting in January, when Clyde FC manager Barry Ferguson was in attendance.

Gary added: “January’s business network event was the best we have had yet.
“At the Burnside Hotel we had a fantastic 50 people attend all from varied companies such as Clyde Football Club, PTS Clean, Neil and Co, the Rutherglen Reformer, the Daily Record, WW&J McClures, and many more.”
