What happens at a members’ meeting?

Members’ meetings are informal opportunities to find out what is happening at Vision Buxton and to hear reports from our members and associates including High Peak Borough Council, the local police force and the Town Team.

​Guests from local businesses or the community are often invited to give a brief presentation about a project which they are involved in and which may be of interest to Vision Buxton members. Attendees always have opportunity to ask questions or raise issues.

After approximately an hour, attendees can stay and promote their business in the networking meeting and carry on conversations. Tea and coffee is provided free of charge.

If you are interested in joining Vision Buxton and would like to attend one meeting before committing yourself, you are welcome to do so.
