Town Mayor, Cllr Matthew Street presenting Jeremy Woolger with Civic Award

The Chamber AGM held on 7th March at Crowborough Community Centre was opened by the current President, Louise Harrington, who welcomed Matthew Street, the Town Mayor.  Matthew was delighted to present Jeremy Woolger with a prestigious Civic Award in recognition for his 12 years of dedicated service as Chamber President.  The Civic Awards are held in high esteem and only awarded when a person has made a significant effort and contribution to the residents of Crowborough.  Jeremy was awarded a framed certificate and medal, and his name will be engraved on the Honors Board at the Crowborough Council Offices at Pine Grove.

The AGM also featured a presentation by Crowborough First Responders, a volunteer group providing emergency support.  They offered an informative demonstration on defibrillators and emergency procedures. Crowborough Community First Responders are a team of specially trained volunteers responding to emergency 999 calls in partnership with NHS Foundation Trust and as a charity they rely entirely on donations. In addition to providing frontline response 999 calls, they also fund Public Access Defibrillators and run awareness sessions for the public in life.

The Chamber hold a range of regular networking events and meetings, including regular breakfast networking meetings.  The Chamber’s events are relaxed, no pressure events designed to allow businesses the chance to promote themselves and services to other companies as well as socialise with others in an informal atmosphere.  If you are interested in attending these and any of our other events or would like more information regarding joining the Chamber please contact Sue Todd,
