Thursday evening 23rd June was the celebration of Sevenoaks District Chamber of Commerce’s 110th Anniversary.

The event hosted by Chamber member Knocker & Foskett Solicitors, was held in the garden of their Red House premises and sponsored by Hilden Park Accountants and Handelsbanken Sevenoaks. This was a gathering of Chamber members in celebration of local businesses, both those long-established and those new to the Chamber

Evolving from the Sevenoaks Chamber of Trade and primarily serving the needs of the traders; the focus is now on the wider needs of the general business community where the Chamber serves a network of over 200 member companies ranging in size from start-ups and small businesses to international organisations.

“We have a long and successful tradition to uphold, the Chamber’s role has always been to share good practice, to support one another; to connect, to influence and to grow” said Dawn Blee current CEO of the Chamber.
