A coffee shop held a business meeting marathon last month with over 200 get-togethers taking place.

Costa Coffee in Cheam has teamed up with business networking group BNI to welcome members from the Sutton, Epsom and Kingswood, groups who hold meetings there.

Salvatore Notturno, operations manager at Costa in Cheam, said: "The South East is brimming with fantastic business owners, and over the past month, our coffee shop has been too!

"We see a lot of business meetings taking place here, but as soon as we invited BNI members in, we saw how business is really done - relentless networking is obviously the route to success."

Sutton BNI meets every Thursday at 6.30am at Oaks Park Golf Club in Woodmansterne Road, Carshalton, to share business contacts and referrals with each other.
