We already operate a thriving domestic Friends scheme and Wem Town Hall now has one for Business Friends.
Becoming a Business Friend of Wem Town Hall would offer your business the following benefits:
- Promoting the name of your firm within the community
- Your business named on the Wem Town Hall website (with an opportunity to purchase a hyperlink)
- Your business named in the Friends listing in the quarterly brochure
- Two named individuals to receive discounts for selected Wem Town Hall events, a 10% discount off meals at Wem Town Hall Cafe and early invitations to social events
- Discounted room hire rates throughout the year.
- Sponsorship, advertising and client hospitality opportunities
The cost to become a Business Friend is £50 per annum with a Direct Debit in place, or £60 if you prefer an annual invoice.
Why do we want Business Friends?
Wem Town Hall Community Trust was set up in 2006 by local people who sought to re-open this building as a vibrant centre for the benefit of the local community and local economy.
The Trust has worked tirelessly, with the support of volunteers and partnership organisations, and in 2009 we took over the lease and successfully re-opened Wem Town Hall. Today, the lively town centre venue is well used and well regarded by locals and visitors alike, yet still, we need to do more to make sure the venue has a sustainable future.
In 2009 we achieved investment for the refurbishment, and in return we agreed to create local jobs, local services and local training opportunities. Today, the venue hosts a wealth of events and activities, is hired by local people, groups, businesses and organisations, and offers a range of services including visitor information and a café.
The community venue is not run by the local council. Throughout the year, we have to earn enough money to pay the bills. This means that every pound spent in the building helps to keep the doors open!
By becoming a Business Friend your firm would be investing in your local community venue and together we can make sure that Wem Town Hall is a venue that you can be proud of!
