St Georges Day Flags 
Its almost that time of year when the village comes alive with the St Georges Day Flags.  We'll be putting them up on Sunday 14th April, meeting at 10am at the noticeboard outside the Kitchen Larder.  We understand that time is precious but we really hope you can support us - even if you physically can't be there, please ask your friends and family if they can help.  We had very few volunteers to help with the take down of the Christmas lights and it would be a real shame if we were unable to put the flags up this year. 




Purple Day for Epilepsy Society 
Our last Chamber Seminar was held at the Epilepsy Society where we learnt all about Epilepsy and the fabulous work the Society does with no Government funding.  If you haven't heard of Purple Day, where have you been hiding? It's on 26th March and many of our businesses are turning purple on, and leading up to the day. You don't have to do very much at all.. wear something purple, bake a purple cake... it's more about awareness, but if you can do something to raise money for the Epilepsy Society even better - remember to use the tag #purpleday in your social media posts



Our next Seminar
Our next seminar is at Austenmead, a lovely supported living home in School Lane. We'll be there on 23rd May from about 6pm - presentations start at 6.30pm  At these events you get to learn about some of our members and their businesses as well as enjoying a drink or two with time for informal networking. 
If you would like to showcase your business at one of our  events please do get in contact. 



Your Chamber needs you! 
You may have seen in the Presidents report for 2018 that we finished up last year with 91 members - more than we've ever had! However, we are struggling to find committee members to support all these members. If you have a few hours a week and want to join a proactive team supporting our businesses, please let me know.  You are often the first to know about important information and initiatives and will have a say in any decisions we make. You are more than welcome to attend one of our monthly committee meetings before you commit to anything. Let me know if you want further details. 



Feast Day 
Feast Day will be here before we know it! If you'd like to advertise your business or organisation in the Feast Day brochure please get in contact with Simon on 077866 00070 or" rel="nofollow - before the end of March. 

If you can volunteer some time on the day or want to book a stall, please" rel="nofollow -


Subscriptions 2019 

A gentle reminder to pay your subscriptions for 2019 before we need to start the reminder process. All of this will cost us time and effort which we could be making more use of elsewhere.  If you haven't joined yet and would like to know more about member benefits, please get in contact.

Newsletter September 2019:

Thank you for subscribing to the Keep it Local CSP newsletter, containing regular news and updates about what's available in YOUR village!" rel="nofollow - - Chamber of Commerce  to encourage people in Chalfont St Peter to shop in our handy village centre, to dine in local restaurants, to engage tradesmen from across the village for odd jobs and bigger projects, to use the varied services of the multitude of business people in the area – and help them all to continue to provide us with useful products and services, right on our doorstep, to minimise the need to travel further afield to less convenient shopping centres. Please spread the word and help others to 'Keep it Local'...



The Chamber are delighted to welcome Karen Dickson and Tony Shinner to our numbers. Both Karen and Tony are regular supporters of the Chamber in their capacity as parish councillors, but they now join us as business owners of DicksonShinner

‘CSP and the surrounding areas has a high percentage of elderlyresidents, and not all of them are fortunate enough to have family close by to assist them with their administrative, practical and financial needs’, says Karen.

DicksonShinner is a confidential, registered and insured service that is able to act as advocates for clients no longer mobile or able to manage their own affairs. Karen and Tony are able to act under Power of Attorney to handle all medical and financial matters for the client, while the client is well enough to instruct them, and to continue acting for their client if their health should take a turn for the worse and they do not have immediate next of kin close by to step in for them.

DicksonShinner are also able to assist with all matters probate-related, from closing down accounts and services, to sorting pets, cars and homes, and making the necessary applications to the court for authority to clear and empty the home and oversee the entire probate process. A different but significant service aims to help clients put their affairs in order.  This service helps folk prepare the paperwork that their executor will one day need to administer their estate (their home, their finances and their worldly possessions). This popular service is called a BLUE RIBBON PEACE OF MIND Package, and involves a 4 hour consultation (over a number of days) with a client who is sensibly preparing a record of important paperwork for peace of mind.  Identifying items of value in the home, arranging professional valuations and provenance certificates is a part of the service. The end product is a hard copy summary of all important documentation for the client to hand to their chosen executor, their solicitor or trusted family member for safekeeping.
This service is entirely confidential




Solo Exhibitions at Emerald Frames 

The solo exhibitions continue at Emerald Frames.  Until Saturday October 5th you can see the wonderful work of Julie Rumsey. Julie combines stunning colours and textures to create her unique prints and mixed media artworks.

Employability Skills Day – Wednesday 13th November 

The Chalfonts Community College will be holding an Employability Skills Day on Wednesday 13th November, this day is for our Yr11 Students and Sixth Form students. The day will include a careers fair in our main hall, the students will be able to attend four career related workshops, participate in a 1:1 interview with a professional from outside The College and complete an on-line career related psychometric test.

It would be great if local business people and traders could assist us with this day! It is also a great opportunity for you to meet our young people. There are several ways in which you can help us:

• Represent your organisation, area of work at our careers fair. Students are really interested to learn how individuals make their work choices and their career journeys.

• Interview our students. Students are asked to complete a generic application form prior to the meeting, this information will be a starting point for discussion. This is likely to be the first time our students have spoken about themselves in a formal setting. The interview lasts ten minutes and in my opinion is the most personally beneficial part of the day for the student.

• Career Related Workshops. There are a selection of workshops the students can choose to attend, they range from Apprenticeships, Applying to University and University Life, Working in Engineering, Starting Your Own Business, Working in the Catering Industry, Working in Media, Completing a Job Application Form and Writing a CV, Creating a Good Impression….. If you would like to run a workshop, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you further.

If you think you can help, please get in touch with the team on 01753 881744




We need your help
The Chalfont St Peter Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1948 and the team of volunteers have done amazing work over the years supporting business and working with the community. Right now we are desperately short on committee members and we're worried that we will have to cut back on some of our activities.  Please contact me if you think you can spare a few hours a week and be able to attend our monthly meetings - we meet at 6pm on the first Wednesday of each month.
