Supporter

Our towns benefit hugely from the support offered by organisations that are located outside of our geographical area. These stakeholders make a valuable contribution to the success of our businesses and the local community. The Business Chamber recognises their assistance through our Supporter role.

Businesses located outside of our catchment area can now become Supporters and receive relevant updates from the Chamber. These special edition bulletins cover news, developments and opportunities to become more involved with our communities.
