    A Fairer Way to do Business

What we do and how we work

What is Fairways?

Fairways is a business group who meet at 6:45am every Friday morning at Milano Express, just off the M80 in Cumbernauld with the intention of helping each other develop and expand their business.

Members of the club are business owners who represent a variety of business sectors and with our policy of “one member per sector”, we ensure that no two members are competing for business.

Each meeting finishes promptly at 8.30am as we believe that Fairways Business Group should help your business – not get in the way of the working day. Fairways Business Group is owned and run by its members.

Our group prospers because it serves the interests of its members not the other way round.

Where We Meet

Milano ExpressMeeting in Milano Express in Cumbernauld, Fairways is a great place to meet in an exciting and vibrant location.

The restaurant is just off the M80, at junction 6, next to Old Inns garage, it’s a perfect venue to meet for businesses in the wide local area.

Each morning, a full cooked breakfast is put on for members, including freshly brewed tea and coffee.

After some quick networking and time to enjoy your breakfast, the meeting starts promptly by the chairperson going through the agenda of the week.

The group also frequently enjoys social evenings away from business. These give members a perfect opportunity to get to know their fellow attendees in a more relaxed environment – increasing trust and confidence in them as a person, and in turn, their business.

Social interaction bolsters relationships, making Fairways a more effective referral organisation.

What our Members Think

For Business

“I have been a member for over two years and received more than £15,000 worth of business through the group. It really is a no-brainer for me to be part of this group as the meeting is finished by 8.30 and I can on with the rest of my day. At only £100 to join and £25 a month for my breakfast, it is something that provides my business with an excellent return on investment.”


“I like to know who I am passing referrals to, especially if it involves my close friends and customers. The social nights are a great way of getting to know your fellow Fairways members. This way you can build a relationship with them and be safe in the knowledge that they will deliver on their promises.”


“I have tried many networking groups and events and never really found that they were for me: too many rules, or it ate too much into my working day. I tried Fairways and I loved it. It was very relaxed, great fun and I gained a number of extra contacts for my business… the only thing I was losing was a couple of extra hours in my bed on a Friday morning!”

Think this could be for you?
