There'll be a short (20mins) informal Carol Service in St Peter's Church (next to the Town Hall) for everyone who'd like to join us. The Church will be open 6-8pm - all are welcome for refreshments, or just to sit down after all that shopping!

Decor By Georgie will be hosting a little late night shopping party on Salisbury street so be sure to wander down and say hi! #indyshaftesbury

Whoโ€™s turning the lights on

What time are the lights being switched on?

We are almost at the end of our 2018 program of networking events and would love you to join us for our final breakfast, from 7.45am, at High Street Bakery and Cafe on Thursday 29th November.

We won't be meeting in December so, following this month's get together, we won't meet again until Thursday 31st January 2019.

As our last presenter of the year we welcome regular attender at networking meetings, Fran Gillett, who works for Trethowans LLP and is based locally.

Fran is planning to offer us a 'whistle-stop tour of running a personal injury claim' and will be reassuring us that personal injury lawyers are really not 'ambulance chasers'!

Please email networking@shaftesburychamber.co.uk by close of business on Tuesday 27th November to book your place.

Caroline Wilson....can you go to this ?

๐ŸŒŸCan you spare a few hours to make this Christmas really special?๐ŸŒŸ

We often wake up to find flags or decorations throughout the town but seldom stop to wonder how they got there.

The general public assume the council must have done it.

We know, however, that is it is the Chamber of Commerce; or rather, as it is usually, a small handful of the same people from the Chamber plus one or two other stalwarts of the town.

For the last couple of years, however, putting up the Christmas trees has SO much quicker and easier than expected. That is all down to the phenomenal turn out of new faces who've been kind enough to help.

We proved that when we all pull together it can be done in a couple of hours, so we can all get back to the family or pub, rather than the half a day it took sometimes previously.

So lets do even better this year.

If you- and anyone else you want to bring along- fancy helping you will be very welcome. Itโ€™s a very sociable time where you will meet or make friends!

This year we need your help on Sunday 11th November, from 9am, meeting at Gilyard Scarth.

Lots of people are needed to decorate the small trees with our tough LED lights and then put them up throughout the town. After this (and after the Remembrance Sunday parade has taken place) we will move on to the large trees.

Whatever time you can spare - however much or little- will make such a difference to the quality of decoration in your town this year. The more help we have, the more time and care can be taken over wiring the lights to the trees to make our bright bulbs look even more spectacular.

Many hands will make the lights work!
