We are a network of local businesses based in Stansted Mountfitchet and the surrounding area.
Our vision is to promote and showcase local businesses. This is facilitated by regular monthly networking meetings, special events such as Stansted Summer and Christmas Fairs and the development and advertising of the SBF brand.
Central to the theme of business promotion is the idea of each business being a reseller for others. Of course this is based upon trust, reputation and customer service, three essential ingredients for any successful business and the principle of one business being able to recommend another.
We meet at Linden House every first Friday of the month, from 7:00am to 9:00am.
Check our meeting schedule below.
Annual membership is £75 which is due on the 1st June or you will pay a pro rata rate depending on when you join throughout the year.
