Radstock and Midsomer Norton Businesses invited to networking event

A special lunch will be held in Midsomer Norton in June to help businesses in the former Somer Valley Chamber of Commerce area connect with businesses both in the immediate locality and those from further afield across Somerset.

It comes after the dedicated Somer Valley Chamber of Commerce was wound-up and its remaining funds given to Somerset Chamber of Commerce to ensure support continues for businesses in the Radstock and Midsomer Norton areas.

As a result, businesses in certain postcode areas will qualify for a 25% discounted ticket price for a dedicated Somer Valley networking lunch at the Best Western Plus Centurion hotel in Midsomer Norton on June 13.

The event will help companies stay in touch with their existing contacts and meet new ones, with discounted tickets available to business in the following postcode areas:

  • BA3 – Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Westfield, Stoke St Michael, Coleford, Oakhill, Chilcompton, Stratton on the Fosse
  • BS39 5, 6, 7 – Clutton, Temple Cloud, Bishop Sutton, High Littleton, Farrington Gurney, Hallatrow and Paulton
  • BA2 0 – Camerton, Timsbury, Farmborough
  • BA2 8 – Peasedown St John, Wellow, Withyditch

Businesses in these areas will also qualify for a special introductory Somerset Chamber membership offer of 20% off the standard price of a year’s membership.

Emma Rawlings (pictured), Chief Executive of Somerset Chamber of Commerce said: “We are sorry Somer Valley Chamber of Commerce has been wound-up, but we would like to reassure businesses in the area that they can still receive help and support through us, the county chamber of commerce.

“We will be using the remaining Somer Valley Chamber of Commerce funds to subsidise Somerset Chamber event tickets and membership specifically for businesses in the Somer Valley area to ensure they continue to receive support from the Chamber network.”

The lunch will take place between 12.30pm and 2.30pm and include informal networking over a welcome drink before guests are seated for a two-course meal.

A designated ‘table head’ will ask everyone to introduce themselves, giving guests the opportunity to hear from others, learn about their businesses, highlight their own companies and organisations and make meaningful connections.

More information about the lunch is available from Somerset Chamber of Commerce on 01823 444924 or via the website
