The Old Courthouse in Grays set to celebrate first anniversary

Nwes celebrates first anniversary at The Old Courthouse

Enterprise agency, Nwes, is celebrating a successful first year at The Old Courthouse in the heart of Grays.

In partnership with Thurrock Council and the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, The Old Courthouse was officially opened in early 2016. Standing proud at the top of Grays High Street, the last twelve months have seen it develop into a lively and vibrant business centre, and welcome many individuals and businesses through the doors.

Offering exceptional and inspiring workspace with ‘easy in, easy out’ tenancies, The Old Courthouse is ideal for both start-up and growing businesses in the Thurrock area.

Refurbished in an urban-chic style, The Old Courthouse also offers a high-specification break out space, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and an executive boardroom available for hire. With the recent addition of a coworking area, virtual office solutions and business advice and support, there is plenty on offer to give local businesses a boost and a platform for success.

One such business to take advantage of the workspace and support offered by the centre is Dotty Hippo Design. Director, Louise Ince, was the very first tenant to move into the building, and her graphic design business has embraced all that The Old Courthouse offers.

“We have been in The Old Courthouse for a year now and were excited to be the first tenants to move in.” Louise explains.

“It’s great to have a well maintained office and premises, with helpful and friendly Nwes staff, which allows me to concentrate on my business and clients. It’s a unique building and is a great talking point for visitors who come to see us. We hold regular meetings every month in the meeting room, and it has provided an opportunity to meet with a wider range of businesses.

Louise continues, “All in all, it’s been a positive move for us and we look forward to plenty more successful years.”

Centre Coordinator at The Old Courthouse, Charlotte Williams explains.

“I’m so pleased The Old Courthouse has been a great success during its first year.  We have welcomed 24 new tenants into the building and continue to welcome more visitors.”

“We’ve also hosted a wide range of networking events, courses and seminars.  It has brought a real positive vibe to the building, making it a great place to work and visit.  We are looking forward to continuing to support local businesses in the coming year.”

Charlotte also encourages new visitors to the centre.

“If you have never visited The Old Courthouse, now is a great time to see what it offers. We warmly welcome visitors old and new to the centre to celebrate business in Thurrock.”
