DavidThe President's Heartbeat Message

20th November 2015

On 19th November, I was guest speaker at the Celebration of Achievement Evening at Stanchester Academy. I am confident that some of the young people I was proud to meet and present awards to will go on to greater success in their chosen careers, some may even stay in Yeovil, and contribute to our local economy as business people. Stanchester is a Chamber member, and one of the five secondary academies in Yeovil, which, along with Yeovil College, prepare our young people for the world of work. In January, Chamber will introduce the Employer Ambassador scheme to encourage local business to engage with Yeovil College to influence the College curriculum to match the local jobs market, as well as empowering students with life skills.

David Woan - President

Welcome to the Website of Yeovil Chamber of Trade & Commerce

Yeovil Chamber is the BIG voice for business and commerce for local, regional, and national issues; actively promoting new opportunities for our members, and the wider business community.

To keep members informed and empowered, our Executive Committee regularly engage with other stakeholders such as Yeovil Town Council, South Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council, Avon & Somerset Police, the Western Gazette, and our Member of Parliament.  Yeovil Chamber is also a board member of Yeovil Town Team.

We will continue to lobby all the way up to central Government to bring about much-needed change to the unfair and distorted delivery of business rates.  High business rates continue to be a major cause of empty shops in Yeovil town centre.

Despite Government commitment, provision for superfast broadband remains patchy in and around the Yeovil area, and we will continue to fight for full rural and urban coverage in the Yeovil area.  Broadband is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity.

We continue to work with South Somerset District Council, to encourage delivery of a flexible and commercial approach to town centre car parking facilities and rates.

Our ongoing work with Avon & Somerset Police has put more officers on the beat, to reduce crime in Yeovil town centre.

We also offer a variety of regular events to entertain, inform, and promote high-quality, informal networking opportunities, and a variety of discounted rates when engaging the services of other member businesses.

Whether you are a one-person enterprise or a large employer, membership of Yeovil Chamber can make a difference!
