Presidents Blog 21/06/2016
22nd June, 2016
Well, what a busy few months I've had since taking over as president.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported the annual dinner and Stars of Business awards on Friday 10th June. The night was a huge success and not only have I had some really positive feedback but already secured two sponsors for next year’s dinner. If you're reading this and think that your business would like to be involved next year, please let Patricia know on email@example.com Congratulations to the all the winners. Once again some excellent local businesses/business people getting the recognition they deserve. Photos will follow shortly.
The town is looking magnificent at the moment thanks to Penrith BID and their blooming scheme. We have been entered into "Cumbria in Bloom" and the judges are heading to Penrith on Tuesday 12th July. It would be fantastic to put Penrith even firmer on the map by winning this year, so I urge you all to continue to take pride in our town and keep it looking gorgeous for the judging day (and the rest of the summer).
We've had great engagement over the last few months from new members particularly those on the Gilwilly industrial estate & Eden Business Park and we are working hard to assist these members with the issues affecting their businesses. As always if there is anything at all the Chamber can do to help you/your business just get in touch.
Out next meeting is on Tuesday 5th July at Eden Healthy Lifestyle Studio. It should be an excellent night and I do hope plenty of you can join us. Further details to follow shortly.
Happy voting tomorrow folks!
