New Business courses for the Spring and Summer. The courses are being run almost every month.  
Having recently established that while there is lots of great work happening on the skills and employment front here at LBH, there hasn’t been quite so much activity on the letting-people-know-about-it-front. On that basis, we have established a quarterly magazine by way of update.

Streetspace Business Engagement has organised a business engagement event as part of the Hounslow Streetspace programme to understand the impacts of the Council’s Streetspace trial measures on local businesses. The main affected areas will be Turnham Green Terrace, Devonshire Road and Hounslow West where specific trial measures/restrictions have been implemented in response to the pandemic to assist in social distancing and improve provisions for walking and cycling.
There was an initial event just before Christmas, and the next event is this Thursday, 7th January at 7pm. The events are online given the current restrictions but attendees will be able to ask questions and make their views known. A link to the events page and methods for registration below:
