SOUTH­PORT net­work­ing ex­pert San­dra Gee will host her next event this evening (Thurs­day) at 5.30pm

The evening, held at John­sons Lexus in Boo­tle, is free to at­tend.

Guests can en­joy wine and canapes at the ‘Con­nect­ing Busi­nesses’ event, which is aimed at match­ing lo­cal busi­nesses with po­ten­tial prospects and part­ners alike.

San­dra has built a vast ar­ray of con­tacts over her years of work­ing in events, and many peo­ple have at­tended and pros­pered from her events over the last year which were held at var­i­ous venues through­out South­port and Sefton.

The ses­sions give busi­nesses of all sizes and stature the chance to meet po­ten­tial new clients plus to get to talk to other peo­ple fac­ing the same is­sues as them­selves.

APOPULAR patis­serie chain looks set to open in South­port. Ac­cord­ing to Patis­serie Va­lerie’s web­site, they are open­ing a branch at 365 Lord Street.

The site was for­merly oc­cu­pied by women’s cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories store Mon­soon/Accessorize, which closed last year. The build­ing, which re­mains on the mar­ket - though ‘un­der of­fer’ - with Ma­son Owen es­tate agents, is listed on Right­move for £3,333 pcm.

The pop­u­lar bak­ery chain bills its eater­ies as ‘havens of self in­dul­gence’, fea­tur­ing qual­ity cakes, patis­serie, con­ti­nen­tal break­fasts, lunches and teas and cof­fees.

If the patis­serie does in­deed open at 365 Lord Street, it’ll be a stone’s throw from the new Bistrot Pierre - set to open on the for­mer Rus­sell and Brom­ley site on Lord Street in the com­ing months.

Town cen­tre coun­cil­lor David Bar­ton said: “Once again it is a true plea­sure to see new in­ward in­vest­ment in the South­port town cen­tre

through the ad­di­tion of an­other long-es­tab­lished high street name.

“I am de­lighted to see an­other unit along Cen­tral Lord Street be­ing re­oc­cu­pied and wel­come the team to our Clas­sic Re­sort town.”

A spokesper­son for Pa­tis­er­rie Va­lerie told the Visiter: “We do not have a state­ment to re­lease yet. The store is not set to open un­til later on in the year.”
