Witham businesses can get free help to grow with a new business club.
The service, run by Witham Chamber of Commerce and Ignite Business Enterprise, will help start up businesses and those that are already established.
It will be launched in late September and be based at The Hub in Newlands Shopping Centre.
Chamber chairman, Corrine Thompson, said: “We have identified there are lot of micro businesses trying to get started that would benefit from this service being in the town and also established businesses that may want to get extra help or advice too.
“The chamber members are offering their time initially on a free of charge basis in order to support growth in the town.”
