In these unprecedented and uncertain times, North Cheshire Chamber’s priority is to support our members and the local business community, and to ensure the health and safety of our staff.
The Chamber office is closed and the business is being operated by staff working from home, but we are still “open for business”. However, in line with government rules on social distancing all face-to-face events have either been taken online or postponed.
All exporters requiring export documentation can be assured of a seamless service – the majority of documents are issued electronically, and we will continue to produce any documents that require printing by the Chamber and utilise Royal Mail for delivery.
Thank you for your continued support of the Chamber and remember we are here to help – and if we can’t, we have a wealth of knowledge amongst our members that we can call on.
