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 during alternate weeks for breakfast meetings and then, a fortnight later a lunchtime meeting! 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 27 May at 6.00pm, after which we hope we can meet in person although watch this space!
We will continue to keep Uckfield organisations appraised of the business advice and support available.
Please ‘Shop Local’ where you can
Notwithstanding the tough start to 2021, we are encouraged by the Roadmap out of lockdown for England, with a focus on the reopening of doors for non-essential retail and the hospitality sector, which will be a great boost to local independent traders here in Uckfield.
There has been a good deal of resilience out there amongst Uckfield businesses with local eateries offering take away and delivery services; independent stores offering click & collect services plus of course, some shops classed as ‘essential’ who’ve remained fully open and others on reduced hours. Please do continue to support our local, Uckfield businesses where you can.
Here at Uckfield Chamber, we are proud to boast a strong membership of more than 200 local businesses; please check out our business directory where you’re sure to find a local solution to any business need.
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.
