Chamber Activity & Covid-19


Given the latest information from COBRA we have decided to cancel all face-to-face events until further notice.  However, if you have reduced your social contact and are going stir crazy, in about a month we will be holding a “Netwalking” event on the seafront for those who want to get out and meet up with friends in a safer environment.

While we are allowed, we will walk and talk to members in the fresh air so you can share your concerns and offer help and support to each other.  With the breeze on the seafront, we hope that you will be able to share ideas with a reduced risk of infection.  We plan to meet at Fusciardi’s, grab a takeaway coffee and a bacon sandwich, then take a walk along the promenade.

Obviously, if instructions from Cobra change, our plans may change; watch this space.

Eastbourne COBRA Meeting

We organised the first Eastbourne COBRA meeting which was held yesterday and has already been reported in the Daily Mail.  This gives us a direct line into central, regional and local government and the minutes are shown here:

Since then we have receved a letter from the Chancellor and a fact sheet which clarifies help available to businesses:
