The Mayor, The Menopause and Mentoring

We would like to thank all those business partners who joined us at our ‘Soirée at The Wine Boutique’ on 11th July.

As always, our hosts looked after us very well, with their superb selection of wines and beers, whilst we heard from the new Mayor of Felixstowe, Cllr Seamus Bennett, about his role, his chosen charities – Boost Felixstowe, Felixstowe Coast Patrol & Rescue, Felixstowe NCI and Pushchair Pitstop – and his plans for his Mayorship. 

Bethany Fisher from Suffolk Libraries, in partnership with Suffolk Mind and funded by the Department for Health and Social Care, spoke about how they are delivering the ‘Menopause & Me’ project, which certainly got discussions going in the room!

And Sophie Cotterell from Felixstowe School invited local businesses to get involved with students – such as through mentoring – to help to keep our ‘workforce of the future’ engaged and happy to stay in Felixstowe to grow their careers, or to attract them back to the town after University.

If you would like to attend our next event in September, or to become a Chamber member, get in touch with our Business Officer Amanda Oliver at [email protected].
