Find out more about the Haverhill Research Park

The theme of "Wanting the best for Haverhill" continues at the monthly meeting of thebestofhaverhill on Thursday 15th March at The Days Inn, Haverhill, from 10am to 11.30am.  Guest speaker Nic Rumsey, director of Carisbrooke Investments and owner of the Days Inn Haverhill, will talk about how the plans for the £100 million Haverhill Research Park are developing.

Nic will present a review of what has happened over the last year, the current situation, the major milestones over the next twelve months and the type of companies and strategic partners that Haverhill Research Park is hoping to attract.  There are many challenges involved in bringing a £100 million project off the drawing board and into reality and Nic will give an insight into some the day to day issues that have to be resolved in order to turn the vision into a reality.

Elaine Carr, owner of thebestofhaverhill comments, “It’s been a year since Nic spoke at one of our events and it will be interesting to see how the project has moved forward in that time.  The Haverhill Research Park is already starting to put Haverhill in the spotlight with positive publicity, including a recent radio interview with Nic on the BBC.

It would be fantastic for Haverhill to have a science park and for the town to capitalise on our proximity to Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster. With reports of an increase in demand for business space in Cambridge in 2011 and demand forecast to remain buoyant this year, let’s hope the ripple spreads to Haverhill!  The Haverhill Research Park is expected to create around 1000 jobs which will give a welcome boost to employment prospects in the area.

I hope local businesses will join us for the event and support Carisbrooke Investments in what they are aspiring to achieve for Haverhill. This project has the potential to bring opportunities for many of our businesses as well as providing an impressive gateway into the town.”

If you would like to attend this free event at The Days Inn Haverhill please call Elaine Carr on 01440 710 158 or email by Monday 12th March.
