Welcome to the Downend Business Community

The Chamber was set up in early 2010 by a number of businesses in the area, with two key aims:

  1. To promote the economic, retail, cultural and environmental development of the Downend area by working hand in hand with the Parish Council, South Gloucs Council, local businesses and the community at large, and;
  2. To help create a vibrant, sustainable business community that both serves the residents of the area and brings in visitors, shoppers and trade from further afield.

To succeed in our aims we need the support of both local businesses and residents. So if there’s anything you’d like to say please do contact us; we look forward to hearing from you.

A note from Nick Gazzard following last night's talk from him:-

"Can you please send my thanks to all who attended and for your kind hospitality and donation. It was great to have such positive feedback afterwards".

I'm sure all who attended agree that it was an emotional evening but we all came away better equipped to recognise the signs of domestic abuse and stalking in the workplace and how to deal with it.
