SERC and Down Business Centre to Host Enterprise Week Networking Lunch

South Eastern Regional College (SERC) and Down Business Centre will host a networking lunch for local businesses at 12 noon on Wednesday 16 November at the College’s Downpatrick Campus.

The event is part of Newry Mourne and Down District Council’s Enterprise Week 2022.

A week-long programme of events will be available throughout this week to support established businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs across the district.

Cllr Michael Savage is looking forward to NMD Enterprise Week.

Council Chairperson, Councillor Michael Savage, said: “Businesses across the District continue to operate within incredibly challenging and uncertain times.

“This year’s NMD Enterprise Week provides support for local businesses and it couldn’t be timelier.

“The SERC business lunch links in with theme of NMD Enterprise Week 2022 which is ‘Make it Your Business’.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for local business owners and managers to build connections with staff from the SERC College.

“They can learn about the wide range of support and advice services offered at SERC’s Downpatrick Campus.

“Having a strong network of connections and knowing who to contact for support is essential for business growth and development.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest to get in touch with the College directly.”
