May I take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Happy Christmas. The past year has been a very challenging one for businesses in the town and I have no doubt that the next 12 months will be just as difficult but with the second phase of the New Squares due to be completed in October we will at least see the end of the chaos that has been affecting Penrith for the last 7 years and hopefully look forward to a more stable environment in which to go about our business.
The Chamber has changed enormously within the past year and now there are systems in place to be able to communicate with you more effectively and also to get information to all businesses in town when we need to. Can I also thank the members of the Exec.Philip.Richard,Paul,Lisa for their help and support .
Once again have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year .
