Approximately 60 businesses attended the event held at the Osborne Hotel. There were presentations about the work of the One Ilfracombe Teams and the Town Council and the opportunities for business to get involved in current projects and future plans. Businesses were able to quiz the panel which included Ron Ley, Paul Spooner, Robert Zarywacz, Dr John Womersley, Inspector Roger Bartlett and John Swan. Tim Jones talked about how the Local Enterprise Partnership was working on behalf of the area and how Ilfracombe’s profile had been raised nationally through Verity and One Ilfracombe! The feedback from businesses was very supportive.
