More than 200 guests had a “high old time” as they attended Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s biggest annual networking event on the rooftop of the Willis Towers Watson building in Ipswich.

Fine weather meant guests were able to enjoy far-reaching views across the town as far as the Orwell Bridge and the roof garden was also used to provide a range of games including archery and a rowing challenge, which were sponsored by Abbeycroft Leisure.

Inside, there was plenty of opportunity to socialise and network, with the event including short speeches from Graham Abbey, president of Suffolk Chamber, Richard Brame, director of accounting and settlement at Willis Towers Watson, and Ian Fitch, a partner at Larking Gowen which sponsored the drinks.

Rebecca Pascoe, events manager at Suffolk Chamber, said: “Our event at Willis Towers Watson, now in its ninth year, is literally and metaphorically the high point of Suffolk Chamber’s networking programme.

“It was great to see so many companies, from across the county’s diverse business base, having a high old time by both joining in the games and by networking.”
