Events hosted by New World Business Centre
We like getting involved at New World Business Centre. Every Friday we bring cakes for everyone to enjoy. And it’s not just the sweet end of the week treat- we make it a little celebration. From a scary Halloween decorative spider to hearts and roses for Valentine’s Day- it’s never boring. We have also arranged small fundraising for charities. Please, take a look below at some of our events.
We are keen to support the local community, too. Sometimes a little gesture can go a long way. So, please do get in touch with us today, if you would like to discuss a potential co-operation with us.
There is cake in our kitchen every Friday and we always find little reasons to celebrate. Today we bring cakes for the Black Friday bargain hunters. The Christmas shopping season is now officially open. Enjoy!
On Armistice Day, we support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. Thank you to anyone who supported this great cause. Today is the last chance to get a poppy (and have a slice of cake at the same time).
Don’t let our Halloween decorations scare you. The little spiders are edible. Enjoy!
