Keeping Uckfield connected during the pandemic
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis we have had to take a different approach to meeting and keeping our members connected.
Of course, we have been unable to meet in person, so we have brought networking online with fortnightly Zoom meetings on alternate Wednesdays at 8.30am and every Friday, you’ll find us hosting our own twitter hour at 11am – just use #UCCHour to join in!
Additionally, we will bring our members together online for our traditional bi-monthly evening meetings, again with speakers on current business related topics. Our next meeting is Thursday 21 January when we welcome Wealden MP, Nus Ghani.
We will continue to keep Uckfield organisations appraised of the business advice and support available.
Shop Local, Shop in Uckfield this Christmas
The government’s ‘high risk’ assessment puts East Sussex in the middle of three tiers of alert for coronavirus (Tier 2). It recognises that virus rates are rising here, although still lower than in many parts of England.
From Wednesday 2 December, our shops can reopen and hairdressing and other personal care is allowed. Our pubs and bars may only serve alcohol as part of a substantial meal and they must close by 11pm. And our gyms and leisure centres may reopen too.
As we approach Christmas, please Shop Local where you can and support local independent Uckfield retailers by shopping safely in Uckfield high street. Put simply, our high street needs you!
Welcome to Uckfield Chamber of Commerce
Uckfield Chamber of Commerce is an established independent Chamber providing a united stronger business voice for businesses within the town and surrounding villages. The Chamber provides regular opportunities for members to meet and network at various times of the day, acting as a forum to discuss issues that impact trade and commerce both locally and the wider area across the county.
We boast a diverse range of business members including third generation established companies to brand new start-ups. And our executive committee is similarly comprised of a range of professionals and independent business owners. It makes every sense to be part of your local Chamber of Commerce.
Simmons Gainsford have been a member of the Uckfield Chamber of Commerce since we arrived in Uckfield almost 15 years ago. It is a very well run Chamber which is backed up by the number of members that there are. Members meetings are informative and very well attended which is fantastic for the local Uckfield Business Community.
