CCOC: Cirencester Update 2021 In Review

Clara and Matteo, Non Solo Pasta

Here’s to a Successful New Year!

It always seems a bit strange to be writing about Christmas knowing that the next issue of Ciren Scene will be out in January, when Christmas will be over, and we will be starting the New Year of 2022.

As a Chamber we were able to end 2021 with a great Christmas social held at the Growth Hub on the RAU campus on 8th December, where there were over 60 guests enjoying some festive cheer but mindful of the government’s guidelines.

Our new President and Vice Presidents continued to break new ground, with VP Fran Coulter organising a small Christmas Food and Drink Fayre for the gathering, with six local business sharing samples and selling their products, and the seventh promoting Cirencester’s links with the city of Bathurst in New South Wales, Australia.

We would like to thank Golden Sheep Coffee, Non Solo Pasta, Tivoli Gin, Relish, Sam’s Cotswold Kitchen, Project Cakery, and the Bathurst Friendship Initiative for transforming the Growth Hub with their Christmas goodies. Take a look at the photographs below.

Our President Adam Vines gave his end of term speech when he reviewed the year and teased that we were planning a bumper Business Awards 2022, with a difference.

We were also privileged to receive a very moving presentation from Edward Simpson aged 12 years and his mum Anne who told the story of how he had contracted a brain tumour. During his successful treatment, Edward discovered that this was the number one cancer amongst young people and urgently needed funding. Mad keen footballer Edward has organised his 100 strikes at goal, and he is asking local businesses to each donate £100 per strike to raise over £10k for the Brain Tumour Research Charity.
