Keeping Uckfield businesses connected
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!
And although online meetings have been essential, they won’t necessarily last for ever as restrictions on meeting together are lifted. We have booked our next bi-monthly evening meeting in person, 18 long months after we last met in this way. We are excited to invite members to join us at the Bluebell Vineyard on Thursday 22 July.
We will continue to keep Uckfield organisations appraised of the business advice and support available.
Please continue to ‘Shop Local’
Emerging from lockdown in the South East, it remains essential that we continue to support our local Uckfield businesses. The town offers a wide range and choice of independent stores and eateries; never has it been more important to ‘support local’.
We are delighted to have partnered with our town council, district council and Uckfield FM to promote the ‘shop local’ concept. You can’t fail to have noticed the yellow / blue branding around town!
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.
And if you own or manage an Uckfield business and are not a member, well done for being here on our site! Please do get in touch and we’d be pleased to discuss the wide range of member benefits.
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.
