Interested in setting up your own business, or becoming your own boss? A newly formed business group in Weymouth and Portland may be able to help you.

The New In Business club has been set up to offer advice on topics such as employment law, business taxes and costs and personal relationships between small businesses. The group also invites guest speakers to talk about various issues in establishing and promoting your new project.

The club, financed by the EU's European Regional Development Fund, is aimed at those interested in setting up a business for the first time, or those who would like to become self-employed but have little or no experience.

Christine Collins, the group's chief organiser, says she's thrilled that the club can provide so many opportunities for new business owners.

'It's fantastic that for the first time, we have a programme of training and support focused solely on Weymouth and Portland.'

The group, which has been running since May this year, has already led to the creation of several new businesses in the Weymouth area, including Dorset Trade Skills, run by David and Mandy Hunter.

David says that the group's knowledge was 'invaluable' in helping him find his feet in the world of business.

The next meeting of the New In Business Club takes place at Weymouth College on Thursday 11th September at 9.30am, and features an appearance by Andrew Knowles of Writecombination. For more information on attending, contact Christine Collins on 07740 403942.
