Come and celebrate 100 years of the Yeovil Chamber working with local businesses. There will be a special presentation by Leonardo Helicopters UK and an exclusive guided tour around the aerospace engineering company’s build facility.

This is a very special networking event not to be missed. Yeovil Chamber is one of the oldest local town chambers, having had its first recorded AGM in February 1920.  Join us as we cast our eyes back over a hundred years of Yeovil Chambers influence in the local community.  
Ben McGrail will guide us through a short history of Yeovil business and current affairs. We will also welcome an insight from Leonardo.

David Woan (President of Yeovil Chamber) will talk about how the Chamber was formed, with a sneak peek at the minutes of the first ever AGM. He will highlight some of the successes over the years and present the Chamber vision for the future.

The event will also include the signing ceremony for the Armed Forces Covenant, in the presence of the Royal Navy and Wessex Reserve Forces.
