As a valued member, we wanted to share our efforts related to the Coronavirus and to let you know that we’re here to help if you need us.  

We recognise that while the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to develop, there is a huge strain on much of your day-to-day business operations.

In this time of uncertainty, we wanted to let you know that the Chamber team remains fully available.

Global Services Team:

Our export documentation service continues to be fully operational. For any queries relating to this please email or contact 01582 522448.


We have postponed our events for the next four weeks and will continue to monitor the latest Government advice. We will ensure that any changes to our events schedule beyond this timeframe will be communicated at the earliest opportunity. For further information please email or contact us on 01582 522448.   

Raising Your Profile:

All of our communication channels remain open to support members increase their customer reach and raise their profile in the network. For further information in promoting your business please email or call 01582 522312.

Budget Announcements:

We are currently waiting for the detail on how small businesses can access the £3,000 grant announced in the Budget last week. As soon as we hear we will ensure our members are the first to know.


In these difficult times it’s becoming increasingly evident that further support will be needed for local businesses. To build our case it’s incredibly important that we can share your experiences to ensure Government both understands the concerns of, and provides necessary support to, businesses during this period.  To share this information in confidence please contact
