Daventry Retail Forum members, Cheryl Thallon, Lorna White and Paul Campbell welcomed John Lewis Chairman, Sir Charlie Mayfield, to Daventry on Friday (November 8th).

During his 3-hour visit, he toured the town centre and had a bite of lunch at Bread & Circus artisan bakery.

Sir Charlie said: “It is so impressive what you’re doing in Daventry…Really enjoyed hearing more about the Retail Forum, seeing the town and understanding a bit more about your business(es) and the market.”

Cheryl explains the connection: “I met Sir Charlie at a meeting of the British Independent Retailers Association which was exploring the opportunities and challenges of 21st century retailing. I was describing the newly formed Daventry Retail Forum, and he showed great interest. Within a few days, he had scheduled to visit Daventry.”

Sir Charlie Mayfield is the Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership which includes the Waitrose supermarket chain. He was the Government appointed Chair of the UK Commission for Employment and Skills from 2010 to 2016 and Chair of the British Retail Consortium from 2014 to 2016 and was knighted for services to business in 2013.

The Daventry Retail Forum is a loose alliance of 80+ independent retailers with the ambition to increase footfall in the town centre, by creating and connecting with local events and boosting social media awareness via ‘Discover Daventry’. 

Further collaboration is planned for the Daventry Retail Forum and Sir Charlie Mayfield via his ‘Be the Business’ programme.
