Meeting Round-up
Vice-chairman Simon Shaw welcomed more than 70 local businesses and organisations to the August meeting of Newark Business Club, probably partly tempted by the amazing ice cream on offer from Castle Ice Cream, which Buttercross Estates kindly bought for everyone.

A winning meal at Everest Inn
On the subject of food, the sponsor of August’s meeting was the Everest Inn. Based on Castle Gate in Newark and with other restaurants in Grantham, Stamford and Lincoln, Everest serves Nepalese and Indian cuisine.

It prides itself on its quality food, exceptional service and outstanding value in modern, comfortable and relaxed surroundings, and has won a series of awards including Newark Business Award for Excellence in Business (2016), a Good Food Award (2017) and a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. It is also a 2017 British Curry Award Finalist.

An Everest Inn meal for two for the winner of the business card draw went to Alexander Jepson of Southwell Racecourse.

Young, and Not So Young, Professionals
Francesca Tricarico of Duncan & Toplis presented the Newark Young Professionals group to the meeting. Established in 2016, the group focuses on networking but in a more informal, social setting. The group is for young professionals (and those who are young at heart) that want to make business connections and have fun along the way.

The next meeting is on Thursday August 31 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at The Ram on Castle Gate in Newark. Join 40 other professionals and guest speaker Peter Watson of Chatty Imp, for gourmet food, a glass of Pimms and a fun quiz. Cost is £10 per person.

Action Group Highlights
Action Group chairman James Fountain of Bazzoo gave the meeting an update on:

• East Midlands Rail Franchise Consultation The East Midlands has one of the lowest levels, nationally, of investment in its rail infrastructure. It’s vital for local business that Newark gets more frequent rail services and faster journey times and imperative that the group of operators that make up the East Midlands Rail Franchise are made aware of Newark’s strategic importance in any decisions made.
The consultation document has been read and digested and Bob Poynter is preparing a response to it on behalf of the Newark business community.

• Sponsor a Roundabout Any business interested in sponsoring a roundabout in Newark, and the excellent exposure this brings, can contact Lisa Williams by emailing The weekly cost for sponsorship is £70 + VAT upwards.

• Visitor Accommodation Survey It is estimated that 65,000 people are employed within the tourist accommodation sector across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Within Newark, a survey is to be undertaken to establish the potential for developing the self-catering accommodation offer.

Marketing NG – The Place to Be.
The Business Club welcomed Annette Thornley, partnerships manager at Marketing NG, a new organisation established to promote the NG postcode area as a place for investing and visiting.

Marketing NG in part replaces the role of Experience Nottinghamshire and is responsible for promoting Nottinghamshire to an international audience. It has three strands:

• Invest in Nottingham, which promotes the area to potential investors; • Visit Nottinghamshire, which welcomes visitors to explore and enjoy what the area has to offer; and

• Nottingham Partners, a networking group of 580 members with an interest in promoting the potential of the county.

Annette also gave an update about the Newark stage of the Tour of Britain, happening on September 6. Experts are predicting an economic boost of around £500,000 for the county, based on the impact seen in other locations when hosting the start or finish elements of the race in previous years.

Barcode Warehouse is the main sponsor of the Newark stage of the race but there are plenty of other sponsorship opportunities for interested businesses and organisations. Sponsors will be able to use the event logo on their own materials and take advantage of the PR and social media opportunities.

Further information on both sponsorship and VIP hospitality packages can be obtained by contacting Annette on 0115 962 8320 or Julie Reader-Sullivan at Newark & Sherwood District Council on 01623 650000.
Next meeting: September 1, 2017 -  The Everyday Champions Centre, 7am

Focus on - The Everest Inn Newark

 The Everest Inn Newark is a fine dining Nepalese and Indian restaurant located in the Castlegate Centre in Newark. Set in a comfortable and modern interior with soft lighting and warm ambiance, we specialise in serving Nepalese and Indian cuisine combined with heart-warming hospitality and caring customer service. Besides the regular a la carte menu for the evenings, we also serve light lunches from a separate menu for afternoons.

 Our customers are mostly local residents, who are growing in numbers, and the majority of whom are also becoming our regulars. We also have a growing numbers of customers who come regularly from the surrounding villages and hamlets. At the moment we are focusing solely on the dine-in aspect of the business but we have plans to expand to catering and takeaways.

Concept and vision of our restaurant

Nepalese restaurants in the UK are seeing a growing trend over the past decade and it would not be an overstatement to say that Nepalese cuisine is finally being recognised as different and as an alternative variation of the Indian style of cooking. Nepal’s cultural diversity has resulted in a variety of cuisines based upon ethnicity and therefore in Nepalese cooking, we can see an amalgamation of the Tibetan and Chinese influence from the north and the Indian influence from the south. So, apart from the ever-popular and famous Indian dishes, The Everest Inn tries to bring to its customers the best of these Nepalese cuisines in what we call the Chef’s Platters and the Chef’s Recommendations section of the menu. Therefore, although we use almost the same set of spices as in Indian cooking, the difference lies in the style of cooking, which is focusing on simplicity and not overdoing the flavours and oil which people nowadays are noticing and appreciating. So, for people who want a change from their regular choice of curries, we provide the healthier and tastier version.
