What is the Guild and how is it helping to shape Redhill into a better place to live, work and shop See our Members

“Decisions are made by those that turn up – in the case of the Guild, this is not strictly true.  You don’t have to be at the meetings to have your voice heard.”

Established in September 2016 and representing a wide cross-section of businesses the Redhill Business Guild promotes and improves the trading interests of all its members. Through our collective voice, we endeavour to support business, create connections and develop the Redhill community for the benefit of local businesses and residents. We welcome all proactive businesses wishing to join the Guild to help us achieve our objectives and become a part of the Redhill business community.

Our objectives are to:~

  • Create a strong single voice and channel of communication for the Redhill business community.
  • Bring forward community events for the benefit of businesses and residents of Redhill.
  • Promote Redhill as a place to do business, to live and be part of an inclusive community.
  • Facilitate local communication and full contribute to local initiatives and projects

Our fees for annual membership are priced at £50 per organisation. All revenue generated from membership fees is used by the Guild to fund initiatives that deliver our objectives. 

When does the Guild Meet?

Our meetings are usually held on Wednesdays of every other month from 5:30pm until 7:30pm.  Throughout 2022 we are partnering with The Harlequin Theatre to hold all member meetings in their bar and meeting spaces. The format is informal networking for the first hour with the formal meeting proceedings beginning at 6:30pm sharp-ish.  We welcome any of our members to attend the meeting and encourage non-members who are considering joining to come along to see what it is all about and speak to some existing members to get an honest view of the Guild. 

Members are also welcome to book a speaking slot at the meetings by emailing info@redhillbg.org.uk.

Upcoming Meetings

Why come along and who will be there?

If you’re considering joining, you may be thinking right now ‘what’s the benefit to my business?’. Well, at Redhill Business Guild we believe that action begets results. Redhill regeneration schemes are well underway giving the town centre a new lease of life, but regeneration is not enough if this doesn’t translate to more customers walking through your door or contacting you. Collectively our aim is to raise the profile of Redhill as a place to live, work and shop by implementing local schemes that achieve this. In doing so, Guild businesses should; be exposed to more customers, access a greater pool of job seekers and develop local businesses contacts.

The Guild has a wide variety of members from independent traders to community groups to some of Redhill’s largest employers.
Collectively our members share a common goal of supporting and enhancing the town as a place to live, work and shop. We welcome any business or organisation who has a passion to see Redhill prosper and wants to play an active role in bringing this to fruition.
This is your chance to share your ideas for improving Redhill and watch them come to life.

The Guild is driven by a Committee comprising:
Andy Nash: Chairman
Paula Edwards: Vice Chairman & Communications
Phil Jones: Treasurer
Robin Brown: Secretary
Diane Dunkley
