By working together East Grinstead businesses can ensure that they have a voice that will be heard

The EGBA is a non-profit making association whose Honorary Chairman is Mims Davies, our constituency MP.

It is managed by an elected Executive Committee consisting of three or more members and is run by four appointed officers:

Chair: Grahame Russell
Business Manager: Fiona Bewers
Treasurer: Janice Fearn

As the business scene evolves, our businesses are all faced with new and exciting challenges, many of which will bring great opportunities provided they are seized upon.

The aim of the EGBA is to support and represent all trading, service and commercial enterprises within the greater East Grinstead area.

We work closely with Local Government to represent our members’ views and wherever possible, resolve problems.

In today’s world we all need to do some thinking ‘outside the box’ and one way of stimulating this is by talking to others.

We seek to facilitate information and communication flow through our monthly BUSINESS NETWORKING EVENTS held on a member’s premises and of course our regular NEWSLETTER.

What Our Members Say

We are long standing members of the EGBA, which has benefited our business in learning what is happening in the town, networking, visiting other member’s premises and regularly meeting with local councillors.

Roger Martell, Martell's

The Caravan and Motorhome Club is East Grinstead’s largest private sector employer so the attractiveness of the town and the viability of its businesses are very important for our staff members and their families – whether they live here or simply use local services and businesses during their working week. It makes perfect sense to be part of that community through the EGBA and to have a stronger voice where it matters.

EGBA provides businesses with the opportunity to network informally and also is a forum for learning more about the town both from other members and from town and district councillors

“It’s been a funny year, with networking and contacts taking new channels – and challenges of ‘business as usual but business at home’ – words like ‘zoom’ and ‘mental well being’ have come into play every day. People need people, I am one of those. My business needs people too, most definitely…and EGBA has brought that to me every week of covid19, throughout lockdown and tiers. It’s been great to talk and meet new businesses – relax a little and know we are all in this together, and we’ll get through this together. In better times, it’s good to share your success and celebrate with like-minded people “
