Ritchie Visits Heron Publications for Club 66

14 November 2014

Heron Publications in Beauchief received the prize of a player visit after winning the draw at the inaugural Club 66 lunch last month.

The first 66 members who joined Club 66 were put in the hat to receive the money-can't-buy visit - and Ritchie Humphreys also brought the League Two trophy along with him for the visit.

Mike Firth from Heron Publications talked about the day's special visit and his experience being a member of Club 66.

He said: "We're always keen to support anything that brings businesses together in Chesterfield and Club 66 is definitely doing that in the fabulous surroundings of the Proact Stadium.

"We went to the first meeting, a lunch a few weeks ago. There was a great atmosphere, a wonderful speaker and Paul Cook came in to give us a little chat as well - and we won the lucky draw so we're thrilled to bits.

"It's wonderful when local business can talk to each other, it's so often that businesses travel miles and miles to find goods and services when there are other businesses right round the corner that can help them instead.

"For Ritchie to come in and visit us today was great, and to bring this piece of silverware as well. I don't know if the staff wanted to have their picture taken more with Ritchie or the trophy."

Humphreys also enjoyed his time at Heron Publications, being given a tour of the company and being talked through the editing process required for the company's publications.

He said: "We've been down here in Sheffield at Heron Publications, taking a look at the magazines that they distribute around Sheffield and North Derbyshire. We've brought the trophy down, taken some pictures and got to know a bit about the business.

"Club 66 is a great initiative to get businesses talking, playing off ideas with each other and making connections."

The next Club 66 lunch is on Thursday, December 11, when key figures from the management and business sides of Chesterfield FC will be joining the pre-Christmas celebration and interacting with guests.

To book, please email or phone 01246 209765 (ext 4162).
