Members of the North Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise held one of their regular ‘Meet the Chamber’ breakfast events at Pinches Medical + Wellbeing in Macclesfield recently.
They were joined by local MP David Rutley, who updated members on the opportunities for companies arising from the ongoing initiatives to regenerate Macclesfield town centre.
Mr Rutley also spoke about the positive role that the local business community can play in taking forward these plans.
David also spoke further with the group on the positive progress that continues to be made in promoting the Cheshire Science Corridor, including the recent £20 million investment at Jodrell Bank to develop its new ‘First Light’ heritage and discovery centre.
Representatives from local businesses then had the opportunity to ask David about a range of local and national issues affecting business.
On the day, David was also pleased to once again meet with the chamber’s chief executive, Sue Bowden, to discuss its ongoing work to attract more local companies to join its network of local businesses.
Mr Rutley said: “It was great to once again have the opportunity to speak to local businesses about the real and positive economic potential in Macclesfield and north east Cheshire, and to see representatives from so many local firms present.
“It is clear that the chamber continues to go from strength to strength, and I hope yet more local businesses will look into the benefits of being part of this exciting and growing organisation.”
The North Cheshire Chamber of Commerce is currently in the process of finalising this year’s North East Cheshire Business Awards, for which the deadline for entries has recently been extended to Monday 8th October.
