Chris McClure at ABC Business Network

Due to the current government advice on public meetings, ABC Business Network meetings will continue to take place online until further notice. This event will be hosted on Zoom and is open to everyone.  The £5 fee for visitors will go towards a charity of our choice in a few month's time.

ABC Business Network has always been an informal place to meet and talk about your business. We continue that tradition online.


Welcome from Chairperson, Turan Mirza

"Working on the frontline" with Chris McClure

Breakout rooms to chat with members and attendees (time permitting)


Chris McClure, JD Hunter & Co

Markethill native, Chris McClure, has recently undertaken the most challenging role in his 20-year career – store manager of an essential retail outlet during a global pandemic.

Chris joined JD Hunter & Co in Markethill in 2020 and threw himself into the running of the store to serve the community through lockdown and beyond. The first to set the standard for safe shopping during lockdown, our local community stores and supermarkets became safe spaces for our communities and Chris led JD Hunter & Co’s team to adapt their way of working to continue to provide for communities and ensure their shelves were filled with essentials – despite rumours to the contrary.

Chris talks about working on the frontline during the COVID crisis, all while ensuring his own family – wife, Rachel of 10 years and their two children, Isaac (6) and Martha (2) – were safe at home.


Spaces are limited by Zoom so arrive early to ensure your place.  You can join the meeting from 08:45am onwards to allow for a prompt start at 9:00am.  

*Note, in the past the full meeting has been recorded, however, going forward, only the speaker presentation will be recorded.
