The Sevenoaks Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with Swanley Town Council to develop a bi-monthly business networking group. These meetings take place on the 3rd Wednesday (Jan, Mar, May, July, September and November) from 10.30 – 12.00 at different locations in and around Swanley, showcasing some of Swanley’s best business venues. The community is still emerging and growing each month and we organised our first successful business expo in 2018. The diverse range of businesses in the town and rural areas provide an interesting mix of businesses providing lots of opportunity for businesses to connect.
