Welcome to the Sherborne Chamber of Trade and Commerce
The Sherborne Chamber of Trade and Commerce exists to promote its members' businesses and the wider business community and town beyond. It has a membership in excess of 150 and welcomes new members to join.
Benefits to Sherborne
The Chamber is involved in just about every event that take place in the town, supporting the Sherborne community, attracting media interest and making the experience of visitors to the town more memorable.
We are involved with a number of local groups and forums to improve life in Sherborne and to promote business opportunities. We have good links with local schools and charitable organisations and involve them in projects whenever we can. The Chamber also contributes to the town by supporting summer and winter hanging baskets, Christmas trees and of course the town's annual Festive Shopping Day.
Benefits to Members
As well as playing your part in maintaining a thriving town, membership gives your business a voice on local issues as well as the chance to network with other local businesses - especially useful if you are new to the town. The Chamber is a valuable forum, and provides representation for businesses in the town on wider issues, such as car parking, rates and the future development of Sherborne.
We are keen to promote the town and local businesses wherever possible. We have a good relationship with Sherborne Town Council, West Dorset District Council and the local press. We also help produce the annual Sherborne Shopping Guide and distribute a monthly newsletter to over 500 people.
We hold regular meetings and open events and our business breakfasts (with guest key speakers), open to members and non-members, are extremely popular.
Membership of the Chamber costs only £50 (plus VAT) per year, which represents fantastic value for money. Membership renewals are due in January but should you wish to join during the year, a pro-rata fee will apply from after March. To chat to a committee member about membership any Chamber-related issue please complete our contact form and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.
