Chairperson required for The Street Chamber of Trade

The Street Chamber of Trade and Commerce requires a new chairperson following the departure of the previous person. The role is ideal for someone who is interested in Street and its development and also someone who has business background/experience and wants to help the local businesses and the traders of Street. The right person would need to be able to delegate and also network with all sorts of businesses. The existing committee have exciting plans for forthcomingmonthly events but need someone outgoing to be the face of the chamber. The surrounding towns all have successful chambers and Street should be the same. We want the Street chamber to hold regular fun but useful meetings whereby the local businesses can network together but also the chamber needs to be the focal point for other agencies in Street with issues that affect Street.

In the first instance please contact James Pike from LocalReach Ltd on 01458 555503 or email There is an immediate start for the right person.
