Hailsham & District Chamber of Commerce was formed in 1984 and exists to support and encourage growth and prosperity within the business community of Hailsham and its environs.

Membership of the Chamber gives you opportunities to network with local organisations and other Chamber members. Out of this networking grow contacts and friendships from which we can all draw benefit.

Through our regular meetings we are able to discuss key issues and concerns which members may have and decide on supportive action. We occasionally have guest speakers in attendance and also maintain strong links with Wealden District Council, Hailsham Town Council, Hailsham Forward, Hailsham Community Safety Action Group and the Hailsham Town Council Youth Project.

As a Chamber we believe it is our responsibility to do everything we can to support our members and to encourage and help local businesses to the best of our ability.

Please sign our petition to lobby Government to allow Councils across the country to release the £2.5bn they already have in their coffers allocated to supporting local businesses.

Dear Chamber members and associates

Please sign our petition to lobby Government to allow Councils across the country to release the £2.5bn they already have in their coffers allocated to supporting local businesses.

Our Chamber is working hard to have the recently announced Covid-19 business discretionary grant fund increased and made available to a wider variety of small businesses.

Our councils already have this money in their bank accounts as surplus from the previous Business rates Grant scheme, however Government is restricting how much of this surplus can be spent supporting other small businesses. We want this restriction lifted and the criteria of business eligibility substantially broadened away from being property based – 44% of businesses across our region work from home. We estimate that East Sussex could release (at least) another £10m above what they have already allowed.

Full details of our proposal are on the petition: http://chng.it/fcqsfxyHZg

THESE PETITIONS WORK – the last petition that was supported attracted 45,000 signatures and was instrumental in getting this initial scheme set up – we now need the remit of the scheme broadened to help more businesses.

Please forward this email and petition link to all your business colleagues, friends and associates – THIS PETITION COULD SAVE YOUR BUSINESS AND THOUSANDS OF JOBS LOCALLY.

Please sign: http://chng.it/fcqsfxyHZg
