A NEW Huntingdonshire business club that started life in St Neots is rapidly acquiring members and set to launch in Huntingdon after Easter, its founder said.
The 601 Club - so-called because that is the time members meet for their first beer of the evening - was created by Bryan Moore of Plus Fore Golf and Mark Lane from Mark Lane Mortgages. As local business owners with their own thriving companies, they found that there were no social or business networking opportunities in St Neots.
"From creation the initial numbers where about 20 people, through the relaxed and friendly atmosphere the numbers have been growing steadily to the last meeting where 56 business owners attended," Mr Moore told The Hunts Post.
"The concept seems to be working extremely well, with the emphasis on being welcoming and friendly to new faces and people who have not experienced this type of networking environment before.

"In these difficult times we are all now facing, The 601 Club is trying to help local businesses both thrive by networking, but always supply a social and relaxed platform to let their hair down and have some fun," he added.
The 601 Club appears to be drawing business owners to St Neots from Sleaford, Milton Keynes, Bury St Edmunds and Stevenage, and MP Jonathan Djanogly will perform the official opening of the Huntingdon club at the town's George Hotel at 6.01pm on Thursday April 16.
