MOVING FORWARD: Chamber members at their annual meeting
Axminster Chamber of Commerce has held an upbeat and well-attended annual general meeting. About 30 people attended, which is the best AGM attendance for several years, reflecting a surge in membership. Chairman Lisa Lyman reported that membership had increased by about 50 per cent compared to last year, now standing at 47 with more to come. Since taking charge less than a year ago, Mrs Lyman has changed the structure of the chamber, severed its ties with the tourist information centre but also opened up the chamber to non-business people provided they are “passionate” about the town. New initiatives have been announced, including a forthcoming seasonal artisan market. The first one will be held in Trinity Square on Saturday, June 28th and local food producers, craftspersons and artisans looking for an outlet to sell your goods are asked to contact the chamber. The AGM was held at Cloakham Lawn Sports Centre and the agenda was concluded by Pulman’s View editor Philip Evans, who gave a short presentation of the forthcoming Showcasing Axminster & Food Festival. The two-day event will be staged in and outside Axminster Guildhall on Thursday September 18th and Friday September 18th. The Vew From also sponsored a barbecue for members after the meeting. uFor details, or to book a pitch at the artisan market, em ail email@example.com or call 07772 194421. A pitch costs £15, and all profit will be given to local charities
