The August Committee meeting was the last for Chamber stalwart Eddie Paterson, as he stepped down from his role as Membership Secretary. Eddie has played a pivotal role within the Chamber over the last few years, driving a host of initiatives including: our affiliation with the Surrey Chambers, the Business Improvement District (BID) work, the Big Awards – a cross-Waverley event with the borough council and neighbouring chambers – and masterminding the Chamber’s web presence.
At the meeting, Eddie was presented with a selection of wines from some of his favourite travel destination as a ‘thank you’ for his years of service to the local business community.
Craig McGowan, Chamber President, said: “We’re going to miss Eddie a great deal. On behalf of everyone involved with the Chamber, we’d like to thank him for his energy, enthusiasm, wisdom and not least his sense of humour! We wish him all the very best for the future.
