Trio to head up Chipping Sodbury business group

A NEW team has been established to run Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce after the recent departure of its chairwoman Jo Cox.

Three executive members of the chamber will jointly chair the organisation - businessman Andrew Webb, photographer Rich McDonough and lawyer Michelle Baden-Daintree.  

 The trio were elected by fellow members to run the chamber and raise the profile of the town.

They also take up their roles in the year when Chipping Sodbury, after a successful fund raising campaign, will get one of the Gromit statues - the canine character from the popular Wallace and Gromit animation series - that make up a new art trail for Bristol and the surrounding area.

It is now hoped the town’s business owners can capitalise on the expected trade and footfall arising from the trail.   

Michelle said: “We have lots of plans to raise the profile of the town and are delighted to be spearheading the campaign whereby local businesses, organisations and individuals from the community have all come together to contribute towards securing the town’s first Gromit.”
