Commencing at 8.30am with a light breakfast the meeting will have a guest speaker Dr Steve Walker, Chief Executive of ART (Aston Reinvestment Trust).

ART is a Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI) owned by its members with a remit to lend in a specific area to help boost the local economy.
Dr Walker will address the meeting on the subject of how finance can be secured for viable projects that have not been supported, either in part or at all, by a bank. Following Dr Walker there will be a presentation by the Parish Council to inform the meeting about the facilities and services which it can provide to local businesses.
