    Wimbledon Business Forum

    Wimbledon has long been in need of a more central information point for visitors to the town centre. The existing information point, at Wimbledon Library, is considered by many to be too far away from the main routes most visitors take when visiting the town centre, and so many don’t know of its existence.

    Through the Going For Gold campaign, Wimbledon Town Centre Management are pleased to announce the plans for a new Information Point to be sited inside Centre Court Shopping Centre later in the year. At the next forum, David Ordman, Centre Director of Centre Court Shopping Centre and Chair of Wimbledon Town Centre Management, will discuss the initial thoughts and development plans for this initiative.

    The forum is for all Wimbledon based businesses and is free to attend. If you would like to attend, please email tracy@wimbledontowncentre.co.uk with the names of those wishing to attend from your company.
