Welcome to the Newhaven
Chamber of Commerce
The Newhaven Chamber of Commerce is a business networking group. We organise various business events throughout the year including presentations, exhibitions, social functions and have a vibrant business breakfast club that meets each week.
Mission statement: To enhance and encourage development of trade, employment opportunities and the environment of Newhaven. To re-establish and maintain premier status for Newhaven within Europe.
Have you tried online networking?
Catch up with fellow chamber members and find out how they are doing in these testing times. We may be all staying in, but it’s important that businesses get their message out.
During this time many businesses and companies are working differently and so are we. Therefore, we would like to invite you to our Business Virtual Breakfasts.
You will need to sign up to Zoom where you’ll find the instructions on what to do. It really is quite simple.
