    Hi Deborah

    Thanks for your enquiry and interest.

    The Board is in the process of a review of membership and partnership structures and for the Chamber and will likely have it finalised in the next few months. This follows on from the review earlier this year of our agenda.

    At the moment, therefore, we are not taking memberships per se. However, you can subscribe to our newsletter through the subscription panel at the bottom of our home page. You can also follow us on LinkedIn and/or Facebook where we post the same updates as on this webpage.

    Cheers
    Elizabeth Henderson
    (Director & Company Secretary)
