President's Message - Coronavirus/ Covid-19

Posted: 20th March 2020, 10:54am

Dear Members

The wellbeing of our members and employees is at the forefront of everything we do. The UK situation is changing daily: we will continue to adhere strictly to Government, NHS and Public Health England advice, whilst remaining fully committed to providing an ongoing service to you, our members.


You can continue to contact us by phone and email: we remain operational, albeit the Chamber office is now closed to visitors. Anna and Emma are able to work remotely as the need arises. All of our planned events between now and the end of August are, regrettably, being cancelled or deferred: Anna and Emma will be in touch with all sponsors and attendees early next week with additional information. However, we plan to provide information and activities online over the coming weeks so we can all keep in touch with each other. We will continue to help you where we can, with practical advice and support, as we all rise to the challenges that Coronavirus presents.


We are monitoring the situation closely and we will keep you updated if there are any further changes. In the meantime, here are some links to third party websites that you may find useful:

On behalf of the Chamber directors and staff I wish you all good health. 


Alastair Woodgate


St Albans District Chamber of Commerce
