Sizzling business breakfast

130 enjoying local Chamber of Commerce business breakfastAround 130 people from the local business community enjoyed sizzling sausage sandwiches and an opportunity to 'grill' the local MP at this morning's Chamber of Commerce breakfast here at the Hastings Centre.

After breakfast, which also included Danish pastries, fruit and Greek yoghurt, Hastings & Rye MP Amber Rudd spoke to the group in a packed Coffee Box, our on-site coffee shop, and was then questioned about the pier, street drinkers, women in business, apprenticeships and infrastructure.

Retired local doctor John Geater then spoke during the community slot about Prime, which seeks to train medical professions around the world in whole-person healthcare.

Jonathan Dolding, head of the Chamber of Commerce, said: "It was great to be in the recently opened Coffee Box at the Hastings Centre, seeing it full of local business people networking over a tasty breakfast, and having the opportunity to question our local MP on a range of business-related subjects."

Hastings Centre manager Stuart Clark said: "It's fantastic to see the local business community here. We're all committed to seeing Hastings and the surrounding areas prosper, and these breakfasts give us a great opportunity to share ideas and gain contacts."
