E145 Punchline Talks! with Bishop Rachel, Enzo Mora, Heath Gunter and Ian Eggleton

Each Friday, Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen is joined by leading Gloucestershire business figures from a range of backgrounds to review Friday's national and regional newspapers and discuss what is happening in their own business sector and their own individual businesses.

Finally, they round off by picking the stories that have caught their eye in this week's Punchline-Gloucester.com.

The Business Breakfast Briefer show is sponsored by Hazlewoods Accountants and Business Advisors.

This week's panel of experts were:

The Right Reverend Rachel Treweek - The Bishop of Gloucester - which is like having the CEO of the church on the show, Rachel covers all sections and sectors of society from the cradle to the grave.

We find out the business side of GOD in Gloucestershire.

Enzo Mora - MD of The Mortgage Brain, - The company has 110 staff with a turnover of approx. £6million. We find out the latest on the housing and mortgage market - what is the best deal out there at the moment for a mortgage.

Heath Gunter - CEO of the Cheltenham BID - lots going on in Cheltenham at the moment, firstly with the news on the closure of Cavendish House, the cost of business rates in the town, the latest footfall figures and more news on the giant Observation Wheel arriving today (Friday 9th Feb 24) in the town. So we find out all about that and what it means for the businesses.

Ian Eggleton - Partner at Evans Jones - Property & Planning Consultants - Ian specialises in building access, the equality act across all sectors but mainly in the hotel and education sector.

Today was jam packed as always. Following on from President Biden making the front pages of many of the national titles with his forgetful gaffs in a televised news conference - the panel started the show by asking the question: When is old, too old to run your business or the county?

Also in the mix - the Labour party dumping its green deal, the £28million spending plan to kick start the green economy if it gained power, heat pumps and insulation, the state of our prisons, shop lifting, free delivery and free returns and the uplift to shopping on the high streets, plus is the suit back!? So much to discuss we went over time again.

Plus mentioned in the pick of the Punchlines: Neill Ricketts, The Grace network and Cirencester, Barrett and Redrow homes take over, U-turn on parking charges in the Forest of Dean and Primark.

Do we find out where Enzo gets his jumpers from?
