About Us

Downend Business Community (Chamber of Commerce) was constituted in March 2010.

Our aim in setting up was to promote the development of the Downend area by working in conjunction with local businesses (both shops and those working from home), the Parish and County Councils and local residents to help create a vibrant and sustainable business community.

In the short time we have been running we have:

  • Assisted the Parish Council with the Downend Christmas Celebrations for the last two years, through late opening of many of the local shops, and running a treasure hunt for families, which takes place in November.
  • Held our first ever Downend Village Summer Fete – which over 700 supported even when the weather conspired against us!
  • Promoted our Chamber and many member businesses through leaflets distributed to all homes in the Parish.
  • Put together a Town Centre health Check in conjunction with local stakeholders – which will be published in Autumn 2012.
  • Joined the GWE Business West Chamber of Commerce, which provides members with access to useful information and discounted fees for their businesses.
  • Helped members attract more customers!
