Chamber sends out invites to "critical" meeting

Llangollen Chamber of Trade and Tourism is to hold a critical meeting next month to discuss its future membership.

Numbers attending the chamber meetings have dwindled in recent years and it is felt that a new focus and direction is required to reinvigorate the organisation. 

The chamber says this comes as Llangollen undergoes a number of changes and begins to attract significant new businesses and development to the town. 

Llangollen's thriving tourism sector also makes an important contribution to the town’s success and the chamber is keen to attract more tourism and service businesses to complement the retail and food representatives.

The chamber is invting more new business representatives from the following areas to attend the next meeting at The Three Eagles, Bridge Street, Llangollen on Tuesday, October 8, at 5.30pm.

·       Tourism
·       Food
·       Hospitality
·       Retail
·       Leisure
·       Business
·       Entertainment
·       Creative/Arts/
·       Health & Well-being/Lifestyle

Existing members of the chamber are also encouraged to attend where positive ideas and contributions will be welcomed.

Chamber chair David Davies said: “Llangollen is in a unique position to elevate its position as a ‘must see’ destination when visiting North Wales. 

"We are included in the eleven mile corridor of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct’s World Heritage site and with our beautiful valley landscapes, the River Dee, Dinas Bran Castle and Steam Railway, not to mention excellent eateries and high quality accommodation attracting visitors, it is right that as a chamber we should push our town to the forefront of the minds of potential visitors and the media. 

"It is also important that our town benefits local residents from providing quality employment opportunities and an eclectic mix of shops to bolster the ‘shop local’ movement.  

“We want to attract new businesses to the Chamber and to Llangollen that complement our existing infrastructure. We are looking to work with entrepreneurs, schools and key stakeholders to support the town’s development in order to boost visitor footfall all year round, not just from Easter to October half-term.

“We look forward to getting stuck in and reinvigorating the Chamber with gusto and enthusiasm and encourage as many people as possible to come and join us at this exciting time.”
