Our aim is to be the voice of the local business community in the promotion of the businesses, the town and economy of Abingdon-on-Thames and to act as a representative of businesses within Abingdon and surrounding area.

We hold regular social and networking meetings on the 1st Wednesday morning of every month to enable members and their guests to liaise with other chamber members in the professionl atmosphere of The Workstation, East Saint Helen Street.

Meetings will commence at 7.30am and every effort will be made by the committee to engage a speaker to provide an informal presentation on a topic likely to be of interest to members and their guests. Such presentations will commence at 8:00am and last no longer that 30 minutes withthe expectation that most people will need to leave by 9 a.m.

Many businesses attended and put questions to the Parliamentary candidates standing for Oxford West and Abingdon and a number of topics were covered. This seat was described as "ultra marginal" prior to the election, which was later held by Nicola Blackwood.
