Chamber of Commerce
|About the Chamber|
Dear Cobham Business Resident
You are probably aware of the Chamber of Commerce generally; but without being a member you may understandably wonder what exactly the Cobham Chamber of Cobham does and what it stands for.
In effect, when someone mentions the Cobham Chamber of Commerce, you may ask 'So What?'
So what .... is the Cobham Chamber of Commerce for?
Like all Chambers of Commerce, we exist to represent the interests of our local business community. But in Cobham we also recognise that the business community is very much part of the wider community as a whole and we liaise closely with other groups to address the commercial and community needs of Cobham and the surrounding area.
Cobham is an individual community with the heritage, heart and character of a village, which we strongly want to protect and preserve. But the Chamber also recognises the needs of a residential base of a large commuter area; international influence of a large American Community School and commercial presence of multi national stores, not to mention the Chelsea FC training ground a mile from the village centre.
So what .... does this mean in reality?
Well, Cobham Chamber of Commerce is an active and growing group of individuals representing local businesses, including larger businesses that have representation locally.
We value input and involvement from all our members and extend that to warmly welcome new members. The issues that face Cobham as a commercial centre affect everyone, large and small business alike. Our approach is that of a TEAM, where Together Everyone Achieves More – for Cobham and us.
Cobham Chamber of Commerce represents its members and -
So what .... does the Cobham Chamber of Commerce do?
We plan and review plans to improve the commercial centre and maintain the viability of the village as a place for businesses to thrive and serve the needs of the community.
Historically, Cobham Chamber of Commerce organises the Christmas Lights and the 'Extravaganza' event each year. This year we are arranging a 'Cobham at Christmas' event to launch Sunday shopping in the run up to Christmas
So What .... does this mean to me?
Well, if you want to thrive in Cobham, we'd like you to join us.
Finally, I hope this letter gives you an introduction to the Cobham Chamber of Commerce, sufficient for you to want to join, or at least come to a meeting. If you would like to discuss this further, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
Best wishes, in business
