The Chamber recently sent a newsletter to advise that the Chamber’s Web site has been set up and will be subject to ongoing development. We are hosting a Sundowner on Wednesday 25th September at the Shire Chamber Office commencing at 5.30pm to highlight how you can help in making site meaningful and interesting to maximise its effectiveness. We have invited Peta Thorniley along to give us an overview of what has happened to date and how we as business owners/managers can update information to use electronic media to promote our businesses and our town etc.

We need input from members to make the web site worthwhile and your attendance at the sundowner is requested. Can you please let me know as soon as possible if you are attending as we need to organise drinks and nibbles for the night.
