Chairman’s Message

I’d like to take the opportunity of welcoming you to the DBC website. If you’ve stumbled onto this page then I’m very pleased you did, because I can tell you a little bit more about our Business Community and why we need your support and advice.

“Hold on a minute” I hear some of you shout, “Why on earth is our local Chamber of Commerce asking for our advice? That’s not our job!”

And you’d be right, no it’s not. But…without your valuable input, contributions, and indeed support we won’t be able to achieve half the things we want to, for you the residents and shoppers of the community.

We have our aims. In short we are seeking to help improve and develop the economic, retail, cultural and environmental aspects of the Downend area. Part of this remit is to help create a vibrant, sustainable business community that serves you, the residents of the area, so we need your help.

If there is something you aren’t happy about with the local business community, if you feel there is some type of service that isn’t provided in the area, or simply that you want to get in touch please let us know.

We look forward to hearing from you.

If you’re a local business that operates in the Downend area and want to both reach more customers and make a real difference to our business community, then have a look at the rest of the site, and read through our constitution to see how we operate and what our aims are.

We hold regular meetings, with a variety of guest speakers offering advice and information on all subjects, and it’s a great way of meeting local business contacts, so why not come along to the next one as a guest – and see if membership of the Downend Business Community is right for your business.
