Chamber at end of line

I am writing to inform the good people of Bedlington that through a lack of support the chamber of trade is terminating activities.

We have struggled to attract new membership and after a concerted effort last year have decided that time has come to call it a day.

We live in ndifferent times where technology and social media have resulted in an even faster lifestyle, and like many other local organisations, simply gathering in groups to exchange points of view is old hat.

Our funds are being distributed to other organisations who have Bedlington at heart in an effort to help them to continue with better financial assistance.

Our last gathering was on Friday, June 20, where we arranged a small presentation for the recipients of these donations.

We have organised several activities over the past few years, the most popular and well attended being the annual Christmas Carol Concert, and we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the people of Bedlington for thier generous support.
