New Chair for Chamber
The Burnham on Crouch Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce that they now have a new chairman and that the committee structure of the Chamber has changed with new faces taking an active role and experienced members remaining in key positions.
The new chairman is Robin Prior, managing director of Priors Boatyard which is one of the oldest established businesses on the Dengie. Priors Boatyard uses traditional methods and has an unrivalled reputation but has also evolved and progressed with the needs of today's market.
Robin is supported by vice chairman Jim Morton of the Queen's Head, Providence, new treasurer Andrew Courts of Courts Accountants, executive officer Keith Williams of the Burnham & Dengie Hundred Review, social and networking officer Diane Thornton of the Back 2 the Wall art gallery and committee members Robin Bassil of RMB Training Consultants and Chris Fugeman of Mart's Parts. Robin Bassil was previously both chairman and vice chairman of the Chambers' predecessor, the Chamber of Trade and Keith Williams stood down as chairman of the Chamber of Commerce at the AGM held on the 19th September this year.
Immediate past chairman Keith Williams commented.
"I am delighted with the new committee structure and am particularly pleased that our new chairman is such a respected business figure within our community. Since the reforming of the Chamber some two years ago the Chamber has achieved a record membership of 80 and is the largest independent business organisation in the Maldon District."
"Robin has a strong committee who are all enthusiastic and I am confident that the Chamber will become an even greater force in the district and county."
The new chairman Robin Prior commented.
“When my family arrived here six generations ago from Gosport (as grocers) they recognised the business opportunities offered by the charm and tranquillity of this area. Whilst those same opportunities still exist today they are increasingly under threat from outsiders seeking to make short term gain. Whilst I am as enthusiastic as every other local businessman to see Burnham and the Dengie prosper, in my opinion it must be for the long term without damage to our assets. The democratic voice of this independent Chamber is a strength to be reckoned with, that we trust will now be listened to.”
Membership of the Chamber is open to all businesses, organisations and charities conducting business in Burnham or the Dengie Hundred Peninsula and membership rates start from as little as £30 per year. For more information call 01621 784857 or 01621 782160 or speak to any Chamber member.
