THE president of
Wellingborough Chamber of Commerce has pledged to provide continued “support
and guidance” to businesses in the borough during his second term in office.

Simon Toseland will continue at the
helm of the business organisation following unanimous re-election by Chamber members
and the executive committee.

The founding director of commercial
property specialists Prop-Search has vowed to support businesses facing uncertainty
brought about by the current political climate on both a local and
national level.

He said: “As the framework around local government evolves, it is inevitable that the changes likely to be created through the unification of the North Northants authorities could frustrate and
impede many businesses, either directly or indirectly.

“We will endeavour to provide more support and guidance for those businesses facing the uncertainty brought about by weak and indecisive politics both at central and local government levels.

“I intend to continue with my pledge to create a Chamber that can work closer with both local businesses and the public sector and to focus on and address issues that impact on the daily challenges facing all of us.”

Mr Toseland also
chairs the Wellingborough Town Centre Partnership, is a board director of River
Nene Regional Park CiC and an Envoy for SEMLEP.

He added: “The
Chamber’s role in working with partners for a common aim will continue,
including projects such as the Irthlingborough Road bridge serving the Leyland Business
Estate, where the combined efforts of many have secured the reinstatement of
this vital link to the town and the vision for a marina on the Embankment,
where the Chamber is partnering the River Nene Regional Park CiC, Nenescape,
the Nene Valley Catchment Partnership and a number of other groups and
individuals passionate about the sustainable future of the River Nene and
surrounding environment.

“The year ahead will
no doubt be as exciting and challenging as the last 12 months and the Chamber
is ready to share the journey with existing businesses and those yet to join
