TWO local MPs are hoping to give businesses in East Cambridgeshire a timely boost by hosting a joint business forum.

MPs Malcolm Moss and Jim Paice will be hosting the event in Ely on March 19 and are encouraging business from around East Cambridgeshire to sign up.

The forum, set to take place at the Maltings on Ely's Waterside, will provide businesses with the opportunity to share good practice, network and to explore local and national initiatives to help them thrive during difficult times.

Mr Paice said: "Given the current adverse economic climate there is an increased need amongst businesses to share good practice and to improve lines of communication with both local and national government departments.

"This meeting will be an excellent opportunity for businesses in areas such as Littleport, Soham, Ely, Sutton, Burwell, Haddenham and Witchford to network and to access and share information on new local and central government initiatives aimed at helping businesses.

"We welcome all local businesses - regardless of size or sector - to attend this important meeting, and we look forward to seeing you there."
