Here are the notes from your Committee’s meeting held on Wednesday 4th December.

The President had visited the Fernhurst Centre and had been most impressed with both the Centre and the equipment available. He considered it to be a good outpost for the Chamber.

The next meeting of the BID Team will take place in January when hopefully there will be feedback from the customer survey being undertaken by Millie Jones. The Mosaic Partnership has been approached about providing a cost to make recommendations on options for the structure of the BID organisation. Ian Rawley said that he had re-established contact with Christoph Teller in relation to the Chamber survey which needs some fine tuning before it is sent out to the Committee and BID members.

Chamber membership is currently 120.
