Norwich’s most recent business centre: The 17th-century reconditioned steady block whose earnings go to charity


Reconditioned centers in the premises of a 17th-century Norfolk manor home will use companies a brand-new setting for their conferences – and benefit the county’s older people.

The Elms business area consists of meeting and training spaces which can cater for as much as 50 people, and is the creation of Age UK Norfolk.

Money raised from the hire of the previous stables will return to supporting older people residing in the county.

The Elms, previously referred to as the Great House Training Centre, will be re-opened later on this month, at an occasion where Naked Marketing will provide a talk on the significance of branding to organisations. The company has been associated with the rebranding of The Elms.

Business area supervisor Cassandra Andrews stated: “Having owned a small company myself, I know the trouble in sourcing appropriate meeting and training spaces with totally free parking that are competitively priced.

” The Elms business area provides the perfect option for business owners and small companies trying to find business area on the borders of the city. We were lucky to deal with Naked Marketing on this job who accepted our vision for business area.”

Age UK Norfolk invests 73% of its earnings straight on services supporting older people residing in Norfolk, and has a group of 76 full-time quivalent employee, underpinned by a group of almost 280 volunteers.

Ben Handford, handling director of Hingham-based Naked Marketing, stated: “We were delighted to be asked to deal with the branding of the elms business area and eagerly anticipate sharing our know-how on the value of brand name with those who go to the launch.”
