Meet the Neighbours October breakfast

Thank you to all chamber members – near and far – who attended our Meet the Neighbours October breakfast organised by Dorchester Chamber for Business in collaboration with Yeovil and Sherborne Chambers.

The event was hosted by the George Albert Hotel, near Evershot and attracted nearly a 100 members from all three chambers – raising £200 for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. Members enjoyed a fantastic breakfast with the opportunity to widen their network and meet members from our neighbouring Chambers.
