As well as a talk from Andrew Taylor, managing director of Mr Fox, on the reasons he chose Croydon to open his latest bar, Link Up also heard from Superintendent Colin Carswell and Marcus Harris, who is heading up Croydon Music City.
Following the brief talks, and equally brief Q&As, the food was brought out for attendees; delicious Rotisserie Chickens, with rosemary fries, and side salads. There was also an open bar, which helped to create a sociable and vibrant atmosphere, and much good-quality networking.
Four lucky attendees won a cocktail making session, behind the bar; and the winner of the best cocktail (as judged by Croydon BID’s chief executive, Matt Sims) was given a bottle of wine as a prize.
This Link-UP was well-attended by Croydon businesses, with approximately 70 engaged people.
Keely Dench, Business Engagement Manager, said,
“Link-UP is a great opportunity to bring businesses together. We were really pleased to see so many faces from our local businesses there, and engaged in the talks and meeting people.”
Keep any eye out for an invitation to the next Link-UP in the new year.
