The BBTA has been responsible for attracting funding into Beccles, such as the recent LEADER funding in partnership with the Beccles Town Council and the Regeneration Company. This funding was used to provide updated new signage in and around the town, a new website for the BBTA and Beccles Town Council and interactive tourist guides. We have regular monthly meetings, business breakfasts with guest speakers, social events and actively support local projects such as The Beccles Lido and The Public Hall. Also the BBTA in conjunction with local community groups stages the annual Beccles Christmas Lights Switch On.

Please use this new website to further your information on what is on offer in Beccles and the surrounding areas in the Waveney Valley and beyond. Make it your destination for this year as it’s a good base to visit the whole of East Anglia.

Our chair is Jon Sexton, owner of Sweet Memories in the town centre and can be contacted on 07977 100963 or

Our current vice chair is Christine Pinsent who has her own independent business in the town: Saxons Alternative Therapy Centre and can be contacted on 01502 715771 or

We are proud that we are an active and welcoming business association and look forward to 2017 as one of local opportunity. The BBTA meet every month on the last Tuesday at 7pm at the Bear and Bells Public House in Old Market.
