As a result of the hard work and support from Buckinghamshire Business First to secure the funding – the Eco Centre opened with much fanfare and we expect between 30,000-50,000 visitors to the Eco Centre and Farm every year.

Buckinghamshire Business First (BBF) provided lots of advice and assistance when Ashridge Security Management Ltd moved the business from Hertfordshire, and they have since always been our "one stop shop" for everything business related in Buckinghamshire. They offer a goldmine of information and assistance for both new and established businesses.

BBF provided introductions to the Growth Accelerator Scheme, and the UKTI's "Passport to Export" scheme which has led to increased growth and opportunity for the business.

The positive conditions for business in the county and the great advice we have received has enabled us to establish two further businesses in Buckinghamshire which both have very positive outlooks.
