BUSINESSES are invited to celebrate the success of the Chesterfield’s inward investment campaign group Destination Chesterfield and hear the latest exciting plans for the next three years at a special breakfast event at Chesterfield FC’s Proact Stadium.

The Celebrate Chesterfield event from 8am to 10.30am, on Thursday, March 28, will outline the achievements of Destination Chesterfield since it was launched at the same venue back in October 2010.

Representatives from two of the area’s more recent success stories Avoca Systems and Shorts Accountants will be speaking at the Celebrate Chesterfield event.

Avoca Systems has recently secured a share of the regional growth fund for Sheffield City Region. At Celebrate Chesterfield, Avoca will be outlining its plans to create and safeguard jobs in the local area following the expansion of the company’s provision of exported products and services to the Middle East healthcare market.

The Destination Chesterfield project recently secured further funding from the European Regional Development Fund to enable it to continue until at least December 2015.

Peter Swallow, Destination Chesterfield chairman, said: “I am very much looking forward to the event. The town has achieved so much since Destination Chesterfield was launched, not least on-going investment and the jobs it has brought with it. We have more than 100 Chesterfield Champions who are businesses committed to making the area a great place to live, work and invest now and beyond 2015.”

Celebrate Chesterfield is free to attend however spaces are limited and places should be confirmed online by Friday 22nd March via the website www.chesterfield.co.uk/celebrate.
