Weekly Chamber News & Events
15th November 2021
Fellow Members,

I am sorry to report that Jeremy Webb our immediate past president has been stricken by Covid and is currently in hospital. I am sure you will all join me in wishing Jeremy a speedy recovery.
Unfortunately this will mean that the Financials course that Jeremy is hosting will need to be postponed until January.
Anyone signed up to this course will receive notification shortly and the proposed new dates once agreed.
It will also mean that Jeremy will not be hosting the first face to face breakfast meeting on the 17th and this will be hosted by Richard Excell.
The Chamber Board have commissioned a survey that all members will shortly receive.
The board would appreciate your co-operation in completing this survey when it arrives.

I wish you all an enjoyable and productive week.


Mole Valley Chamber
IN PERSON NETWORKING - As mentioned above, the next networking event is going ahead as planned at The Olive Tree Cafe, Ashtead Park Garden Centre, this Wednesday morning. Richard Excell has kindly stepped into Jeremy's shoes and will be hosting this event. If you've not yet booked, tickets are still available to purchase until 6pm tomorrow - HERE.
If you have not yet heard of the Mole Valley Lottery, it is a fun way to help Mole Valley good causes without giving up precious time. Tickets are £1 in the weekly draw where you get to choose exactly which local cause you would like your money to go to.
50% of your ticket is paid directly to your chosen charity, equating to 60p. With an additional 10% going to an Environmental Fund run by Mole Valley District Council which benefits climate change initiatives in Mole Valley. 20% covers the prize fund and the remaining 20% covers the administration costs associated with running the lottery.
Councillor Claire Malcomson, Cabinet Member for Climate Change said: "Unlike larger lotteries, 60% of your ticket purchase comes back into your community and the odds of winning a prize are much better, at an amazing 50:1. It really is a win-win, even if you don’t obtain a prize you can be content in knowing that you are making a real difference to where we live. The festive season is a perfect time for giving, sharing and supporting. As a community, we can do so much more together, so please join us and start playing the Mole Valley Community Lottery today"
Since its launch, the Mole Valley Community Lottery has raised more than £7,000 for local charities and so far, almost 50 local groups have signed up.

We thought we'd take the opportunity of a quiet news week to remind everyone of the importance of engagement. There are not many of us that don't use at least one of the social media platforms each day.

In order to all support each other, rather than scrolling mindlessly through without notice, please take an extra second to give someone a like, a share, or even better a comment.

The more engagement a post receives, the more people are allowed to view it. Such a simple way to help each other out.
