The Port of Fowey Chamber of Commerce aims to serve our community, promote our members and bring together local businesses, whether existing or new, so that they can work together on matters that affect them all.
Our focus is on doing those things that are better done collectively, rather than by businesses working individually. Our aim is to support the development of a vibrant and sustainable business community. We do this by:
• Encouraging networking and discussion. We hold networking events such as our regular Curry Club evenings, where members can meet and discuss issues that affect them in a social situation. We hold bi-monthly Chamber meetings (all members are welcome to attend these and we publish the agenda and minutes). Chamber committee members are also always keen to help and support new and existing businesses by providing information and listening to concerns. We will also be offering a series of educational events where members can learn new skills that will support their businesses
• Raising the profile of the town and bringing in visitors. Our main focus is on organising the Fowey Christmas Market and the Big Gig and BBQ weekend in June, although there are many other events and projects that we are involved with and support.
• Representing our members where there is an issue where we can be of help. High on our agenda for issues that need to be addressed are parking, traffic and town signage and we are looking for volunteers to take the lead in tackling these areas
• We work with other organisations in the town such as the Town Council, Fowey Forum, Fowey Festival Committee and Regatta Committee to ensure that our activities are properly coordinated.
We rely completely on volunteers – so if anyone wants to get involved (either on a specific project or issue, or in the general running of the Chamber), then they should contact any of the Chamber committee members.
We sponsor two annual events, the Fowey Christmas Market and also the Fowey Big Gig and BBQ. The latter of which is a new event and free for visitors to our town, an event such as this is costly to put on and we are very grateful to the businesses who sponsored us
The 2015 event was held over the 19th 20th & 21st June and was a weekend of fantastic food and music here in Fowey. All the bands/acts performed live on the town quay, and were totally free!
