Presidents Message July 2022


Awards season is here! We are gearing up to interview our finalists in each category for our Community Business Awards. Our Awards is one of the highlights in the business calendar, recognising and celebrating the best of businesses in the District. We are once again working with Pearldrop on our presentation showcasing the achievements of the finalists for the glittering ceremony which is taking place on Friday 14 October at Sopwell House. Tickets are on sale now.

Our new website launched last month and we are thrilled with the result. A big thank you to Anna Nguyen from Gold Nugget Designs for all her hard work on this project. I am sure you will agree how brilliant it looks. Members can now easily update their membership details and profile in the directory as well as manage their subscription via their account. We are also looking for members who have relevant content they would like to share in our News section. Please contact Emma if you have any news, analysis, insights or commentary on topics which you think may be of interest to our members.

We were deeply saddened at the news that Michael Weaver had passed away. Michael was a massive supporter of the Chamber for over 50 years, a feat unlikely to be repeated. He was the most generous of people with both his time and spirit to help others with his wealth of experience and wisdom. He was passionate about championing local people and local businesses. Personally, I will never forget his huge smile, kindness and positive thinking no matter the circumstances. We thank him and we will miss him.

Best wishes,
Pat Strods
