I am privileged to represent Wayland businesses in the role of Chairman of our Chamber of Commerce.
We have both a proud heritage and a thriving business community in Wayland built around precision engineering and construction industries; food production, processing, packaging and distribution, and more traditional metal, stone and woodcraft skills. This is underpinned by professional and technical services and a vibrant retail sector that supports and serves the needs of our Wayland community in Watton and surrounding villages.
We all know that being in business is only partly about our products and services – business is about people – our colleagues, our employees, our suppliers and our customers and clients. We all live and work in our Wayland community, and if we are successful in growing our businesses then we can grow our local economy for the benefit of everyone.
I believe that the Wayland Chamber of Commerce has a vital role to play in improving and securing the trading, commercial and other business interests of Watton and its neighbourhood. In doing so we aim to provide you with a dynamic forum for discussion and networking, a centre for collating and disseminating relevant information and to assist in meeting your training needs.
Collectively we have something very special both to give and to receive from our unique community of business men and women in Wayland. I look forward to welcoming you personally to our membership, to our meetings and to our future events.
