The East Suffolk Partnership’s fifth annual forum at the Trinity Park Conference Centre on November 10 is fully booked to consider the theme “Unlocking the potential of growth in east Suffolk”.

It will concentrate on “inclusive growth” and explore how to deliver economic growth while improving local services, supporting communities and protecting the environment.

key note speaker for this year’s forum is Minnie Moll, Joint Chief Executive of the East of England Co-operative and Prince Charles’ Ambassador for Responsible Business in the East of England.

Ray Herring, Chairman of the East Suffolk Partnership, said: “We’re proud to be seeing growth here in east Suffolk and we are also looking to deliver a lot of changes affecting local government, communities, businesses and the people that live and work here.

“The forum is the perfect platform to bring key people, partners and organisations together to think about how we can prosper in these changing times.

“This includes our young people representing the next generation. They will be playing their part in our forum, to help us shape our discussions about what their future holds in east Suffolk.”
