Another successful 1st Wednesday was held yesterday. Katrina Walker, the new Chair welcomed members and guests to the meeting and highlighted that the Chamber Roadmap for 2021 has been sent out to members and due to some uncertainty remaining for business during the next few month the chamber membership rates will remain the same. The fees will be reviewed in January 2022, and we hope this gives our businesses time to recover and be clearer on their financial path.

David Tottle from Diagonal Design shared the new look branding and website for the Chamber and had the following to say:

“I was delighted to have the chance to give a high-level overview of both our designs and plans for the Chamber brand/site, as well as our business in general. Visit diagonal.design for more.

I would happily extend the conversation wherever of interest and can offer our design and digital services for the next, hopefully exciting and progressive, phase for businesses and the economy at large.

A big thanks to the Chamber team for the slot and the ongoing great relationship we enjoy. More from us, and them, as the build phase progresses and we approach launch for the new brand. 

Best wishes to all and high success for 2021”.
