I just wanted to say a big thank you to Phil (and the team at The Best of Bury - both past and present) for the advice, assistance and continuous work they do to promote our business, Munro-Greenhalgh Ltd, to other members and the whole of the business community of Bury.
Since our MBO in 2016 our business has grown year or year - one of the key factors has been raising our profile and brand awareness. Being members of The Best of Bury was and continues to be important in achieving this.
I look forward to working with you.
We’ve always been happy with the fabulous service and support provided by the bestofbury, but since going into lockdown they have become invaluable to my business. As well as continuing to promote my business as usual, they have regularly kept me informed and signed posted me to the main avenues of support that have been available. The Ask The Experts hours hosted by bestofbury have been excellent, providing opportunities to hear advice and have our questions answered by industry experts, in the key areas that have been relevant to the current Covid situation.
At a time when it would have been easy to sit back and feel sorry for myself, Debi, Phil and Laura have always been upbeat and positive and have truly helped myself and my business during these challenging times. It’s a great comfort to know they are only a phone call away and always willing to help.
Thanks to you all for your efforts, energy and continued support!
Fantastic, ongoing support from all the team at The Best of Bury. Thank you !!
Have found the networking and exhibiting opportunities great and have connected with many other local businesses. Made some great contacts and a few new doors have opened for our business. Would recommend to any business looking to develop and grow.

Dear Debi, Phil and the team at thebestofbury,
This is to thank you for the help and support that you have given to AFG LAW since we opened our office in Bury in March 2013.
Through becoming a member of The Best of Bury we have been able to significantly raise our brand awareness which was vital as we were opening in a new town.
I think that it is fair to say that the brand of AFG LAW is now extremely well known within the Bury area and this is in no small part down to the Best of Bury and the activities that we have engaged in with them.
Through our membership we have been able to develop a number of significant relationships both with new clients and fellow business members. We have also benefited from their other initiatives such as Phil's expert advice on looking at business plans and driving the business forward.
The team is creative and dynamic and always maintains the personal touch. Nothing ever seems too much trouble for them and they have supported us in all events that we have run since opening.
It has been a pleasure being a member and we look forward to the relationship continuing.
From Greg and all at AFG LAW

An excellent expo. We've been exhibiting for 4-5 years now. There was a good mix of businesses, those that have visited previously and new faces too. we will be exhibiting again.
The bestofbury Breakfast club has proved extremely valuable to our business, meeting new local businesses and providing us with the opportunity to promote our services to the group. The structured yet relaxed format of the group is, in my opinion, the best networking group I have experienced. Members work actively to help promote other businesses and pass referrals to relevant members at every meeting. We recently had the opportunity to present to the group which directly lead to 4 new enquiries. I intend to invest more time and effort into the group and look forward to seeing the benefits of this great network.
I joined the breakfast club from the very first meeting, the group interacts with each other well and it is a fantastic way of getting to know more about each others business. I have not only gained additional custom but also helps me when buying things i need and recommending their great products and services to my highly valued client and supplier base. The breakfast club works very well you just need to put the effort in and interact.
I joined the Best of Bury in July and made a point of ensuring that I attended the Best of networking group, which they hold every two weeks. It's a fantastic networking event. Run professionally and with quality businesses passing referrals and genuinely working together. Gill at GEM
