The aims of Surrey Hills Enterprises are:
To build a business community by bringing together independent companies and artisans based within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (“Surrey Hills AONB”) via our membership scheme.
To provide a marketing platform to raise awareness of local businesses wishing to be promoted under the ‘Surrey Hills’ banner.
To provide support and services to our members.
To promote Surrey Hills products both in Surrey and further afield.
To develop the Surrey Hills brand which appeals to discerning customers who are increasingly concerned with the provenance of goods and the authenticity of trades and crafts they buy.
To run annual events such as The National Wood Fuel Conference and the Surrey Hills Wood Fair which attracts increasing visitor numbers each year.
To develop our events programme to provide new opportunities for both local business and the community.
To give back to the community of the Surrey AONB. The profit made by Surrey Hills Enterprises will be put towards projects which support the AONB Management Plan (the statutory delivery vehicle for the AONB) which pledges to enhance, protect and preserve the landscape; promote rural economy; educate visitors, residents and businesses and promote partnership.
