Great news for Shaftesbury, as well as the environment, that such a fantastic local business is expanding.So what's going on in the next fortnight?

If you haven't heard we are closed next week until our launch evening at 6pm on Friday (26th July).

Here's a picture showing what we're expanding in to!

Also, the website is having a few updates so last online orders are this Sunday. It will then go live again for our re-launch.

AGM & MONTHLY MEETING 6pm THURSDAY JUNE 13TH
Grosvenor Arms, Assembly Room (First Floor)

Hello Chamber Members and non-Members – in anticipation of our annual AGM on Thursday June 13th, we’d like to invite ALL of you to come and share your thoughts and ideas on things you’d like to see happening in town: festivals, ideas you’ve idly day dreamed about, initiatives you feel passionately about but haven’t quite worked out how to start…..

The small group of volunteers who run the Chamber have lots of ideas too and we’ve realised that this is where the gold is; we don’t want to be bogged down in monthly meetings that cover the same old ground, leaving a few minutes at the end to share ideas. We want to reconfigure how things work. However, one thing that stays the same is that members have the right to see the audited accounts prior to the AGM – if you want to see them, please email us and we’ll get them over to you. Regarding last month's minutes, there's a link at the end of this newsletter.

If you have a great idea that the Chamber thinks is a cracker, we could give you seed funding to get it up and running and put you in touch with all the back up support teams that we work with on other festivals and events: the road closures teams, traffic marshals, Men With Ladders – in short, all the people in town who make these things happen. You won’t be committing yourself to anything by coming, so don’t be scared!!! We’re not going to co-opt you into lots of dull, evening meetings so do come along and join in a bit of BLUE SKY THINKING.

Welcome to the new clean updated Chamber logo.

People flock to Shaftesbury for all sorts of reasons, an ever more popular one seems to be the challenge of climbing Gold Hill on two wheels , this time in aid of Prostate Cancer with the Shaftesbury Rotary Club North Dorset Cycle Ride.

Well done to all the riders and organisers.
