A Yatton business network, which enables firms from across the South West to connect and share ideas with one another, is celebrating after choosing a new leadership team.

BNI Horizon is part of a national referrals network which passes business from person-to-person, and connects companies in various areas of expertise across Bristol and Somerset.

The group will now be led by Vanessa Webb, from Wrington Vale Lettings in Langford, Peter De Halle, who runs PDH Photography in Shipham, Jonathan Thompson of Aspray Claims Management and Howard Golding from Rebellion Solutions.

Horizon meets every Thursday for breakfast at The Bridge Inn, in North End Road, and is hoping to attract £700,000 of business during the next financial year.

Mr Thompson said: “Our chapter is buzzing at the moment.
