The Chairman’s journey through the Chamber:
“I started regularly attending the executive meetings in December 2012 looking for business support, I received a lot of support and sign posting. In April 2014 I was voted onto the Executive committee at the time the only one person business on the committee and continued an active member. I find it incredible the amount I have learnt about business through the many brief conversations with other more experienced members of the chamber, which you only get by getting involved and committing to supporting the chamber, the more you put in the more get out!”Peter Newbery-Thornton
