Suffolk Secrets’ general manager, George Bradley, will be taking over as the new chair of the South & District Chamber of Trade and Commerce. The appointment was held at the annual meeting of the chamber which was held at The Crown in Southwold. There were several guest speakers invited to the event including independent financial advisor, David Bullard, Leiston Press’ Glenn Barnes and My Southwold’s Clair Hart and Sallie Smith. My Southwold is a group that was formed to help promote the independent business within and near Southwold.
Mr Bradley described it as a great privilege to be working in Southwold every day and he’d had the chance to see for himself what the town provided to the businesses, residents and tourists. He also described Southwold as a thriving, close knit community, one that was keen on working together so that those who visited the town could gain even more from the experience. He also stated that he was quite excited to take on the role of chair of the Chamber of Trade and Commerce and he extended his gratitude to Guy Mitchell and the 2014 committee for the work they had done over the past year.
Other people who were elected as members of the committee and officers for 2015 were Angie Brown from Suffolk Secrets who will be taking on the role of secretary and Sallie Ball from Busy B Bookkeeping who is going to serve as the treasurer. Spots & High Tide’s Guy Mitchell, Simply Southwold’s Sue Tayler, Collen & Clare’s Morgan Richards, Clare Hart from My Southwold and Chapman’s, Peter Woodward from Coasters and Beaches and Cream and Café 51’s Sam Wakeman will also be joining the team.
