The Village boasts its very own Mayor who’s also a small business advocate, freshly baked bread daily, a great café, a putting green for business meetings and a Chief Barista Etc. “to ensure collaboration is king”. The Village has been embellished with all the gadgets you’d find in a corporate office.
