Market Chamber of Trade
more than 100 years years of service, having recently lost several members of
the executive committee for various personal reasons, we regret to advise you
all that not one of the remaining volunteers is prepared to stand as President
next year, all of them having done so before.
is a general lull in enthusiasm for active participation in the Chamber.
the last year or so, membership has fallen and attendance from members
(including many who were on the Executive Committee at the last AGM) to
meetings, breakfasts etc has gone down.
these facts in mind, it is apparent that the Chamber cannot continue to function
in it's present form.
activities of the Chamber of Trade will therefore be suspended with effect from
the AGM on the 20th February 2013 and the funds will be transferred to the
Christmas Light fund as unanimously agreed at the meeting on 23rd January 2013.
small number of us (Maureen, Margaret, Mike, Gerry, Chris and Jenny) will
concentrate on providing Christmas Lights for the benefit of the Town, in
conjunction with the Town Council, King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council
and Holly Landscapes for as long as funding will allow.
No invoices will be sent out for subscriptions for this year, although we will
be very grateful for any contributions you may feel able to give towards the
Christmas Lights promotions.
would like to thank all members who have given their time to actively support
the Chamber during the last year.
Margaret Key (President), Maureen and Mike
