Redditch MP Karen Lumley has called for local businesses to get in touch and join her Business Leaders group.

The MP, keen to support businesses in the region wherever she can, will be touring Redditch and meeting with numerous employers.

The aim of the group is to allow businesses and stakeholders to develop their story together so that there is clarity of vision and goals to help grow the local economy.

The Business Leaders hold quarterly meetings with guest speakers as well as an annual dinner at the House of Commons.

Mrs Lumley said: "In Redditch we have fantastic foundations to build on which is why I set up the Business Leaders Group in 2011.

"Businesses in the West Midlands are feeling more confident than ever before as the economic improvement gains momentum with confidence well above the UK national average.

"I have met many fantastic businesses during my time as MP for Redditch but I’m always looking to meet more.

"I encourage any businesses in my constituency to get in touch and come along to one of the business leaders meetings.
