Berkshire firms urged to find Olympic work

Berkshire business owners put off by the red tape of bidding for Olympics contracts can attend a free seminar.

Windsor & Maidenhead Council said local trade should benefit from 30,000 visitors a day at the nearby Dorney Lake Olympic rowing and canoeing venue.

Councillor Simon Dudley said successful bids would be an "economic boost to the whole community".

The seminar takes place at Guild Hall in Windsor on 7 February.

A Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead spokesman said it wanted to encourage local businesses that otherwise might be "put off by worries about potential red tape".

Speakers from the business sector, the council and Visit Britain will attend.

There will also be news on local Olympic-themed events that could provide business opportunities.
