Sutton Coldfield Chamber has “exceeded expectations” in its first 12 months.
That was the resounding verdict as the branch marked its first anniversary with a celebratory bash at The Belfry.
The town’s MP, Andrew Mitchell, and mayor Charlotte Hodivala joined more than 100 delegates to mark the occasion.
Mr Mitchell thanked the Chamber for its work in Sutton Coldfield and praised the quality and ambition of businesses in the area.
Before the Sutton Coldfield Chamber was launched, its members had to travel to Birmingham, Tamworth or Lichfield.
Through the Chamber, the town’s business community has its own identity, its own committee, its own members and its own events.
