Council leader turns spotlight on Gloucester's regeneration at Tayntons Curry Club

The gathering speed of the regeneration of Gloucester was highlighted at the latest successful Tayntons Curry Club.

City council leader Cllr Paul James was guest speaker at the event, attended by 70 business people, and gave an enthusiastic and entertaining talk on the exciting developments now taking place all over Gloucester.

Cllr James (pictured right with Chris Price of Tayntons) said there were no fewer than 18 areas of regeneration within the city with a combined value of £125 million. And he spoke passionately about projects like the Kings Quarter scheme - an important part of the regeneration jigsaw.

"This is the year when it has all come together for Gloucester and we are seeing lots of activity on site," he said. "We have come a long way as a city in our regeneration journey. There is a lot taking place at the moment, but as we all know, a lot still to do."

Hosted by Tayntons Solicitors at the Veranda Restaurant at Gloucester Docks, Tayntons Curry Club provided an opportunity for business people from in and around Gloucester to meet and network over lunch. The Curry Club is now an established and popular gathering of business leaders and takes place about six times a year.

Tayntons Solicitors partner, Chris Price, said: "There really is an exciting feel about the regeneration of Gloucester at the moment. There are people coming from cities far and wide to see what we are doing here.

"It is fantastic to see all the regeneration activity taking place across the city and it really is a good time to do business in Gloucester.

"Cllr Paul James gave a fascinating talk on the city's regeneration and we are grateful for all the work he and his colleagues at the city council are doing to help drive it forward.

"This is the last Tayntons Curry Club of 2017 and it goes from strength to strength. We look forward to welcoming more-like minded business people to our events in 2018.

"We at Tayntons are committed to supporting local businesses and we are proud that the Curry Club has now become an established, regular event in the business calendar.

"It provides a platform for some inspirational speakers and business networking at a time when so much progress is being made in Gloucester."
