DavidThe President's Heartbeat Message

21st October 2016

All tuxed up, I attended the Somerset Business Awards Dinner at Wellsprings Leisure Centre, Taunton as a guest of Yeovil College this evening.  The lovely Alex Lovell of BBC Points West was the (literally) glittering compere for this fabulous annual event, delivered by Somerset Chamber since 2004, celebrating the efforts and achievements of business people in Somerset.  Yeovil College crowned the evening for Yeovil, by deservedly scooping Business of the Year With 51+ Employees.  Their award emphatically endorses the great things happening at Yeovil College, now widely regarded as an integral part of the Yeovil business community.  As well as Yeovil College, Yeovil was represented among the thirty-eight finalists by Rebecca Bevins HR (Business with 11-25 Employees), and Charlotte Atkinson of the Quedam (Young Business Person) - all of whom are members of Yeovil Chamber.  Judging by the diversity, innovation, quality and passion on display, Somerset is clearly a good place to do business, and I felt immense pride by being able to fly the flag for Yeovil.

Welcome to the Yeovil Chamber of Trade & Commerce website

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 meets monthly, and regularly engages with Stakeholders such as Yeovil Town Council, South Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council, Avon & Somerset Police, the Western Gazette, and our Member of Parliament.  Through these relationships, we are able lobby and fight for the business community, all the way up to Westminster, on hot issues such as business rates, and broadband provision.

Our work with Yeovil College on the Employer Ambassador initiative, encourages business people to mentor students and assist with aligning the curriculum to match local employment needs, and has brought patronage from Yeovil College.

Chamber now has a direct influence on the delivery of the economic regeneration budget, through our work with South Somerset District Council, and our board membership of the Yeovil Vision group.

Our membership of the Yeovil One Crime & Safety Team sees Chamber working with the PCC, senior police officers, and town centre security officers, to keep crime rates low, and keep anti-social behaviour out of Yeovil town centre.

We also offer a variety of regular, high-quality, and informal networking events to entertain, inform, and promote networking opportunities between business people.

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