70s Night, hosted by Sush. September 2017
Oh what a night, late September back in 17! …
Great to see so many Chamber members and guests getting their sparkly dancing gear on for a great night at Shush in Wantage. A fun social night catching up with everyone, over a 70s themed buffet, followed by a Stevie Wonder tribute act and dancing late into the night.
Wantage to Winchester Bike Ride 16th July 2017
Nearly 200 riders descended on Wantage Market Place for the start of the 10th annual Wantage to Winchester bike ride. The event, supported by the Chamber, is a 53-mile cycle ride from Wantage to Winchester in Hampshire, starting in the birthplace of King Alfred the Great and finishing at his final resting place.
The event this year was organised by Bespoke Biking in Winchester with the support from members of Wantage Chamber of Commerce and Wantage Town Council.
The event is very popular with riders and grows in size each year. It will be back next year if you fancy the challenge.
June Summer Social 2017
Thank you very much Charles Lucas & Marshall, part of Coffin Mew LLP for hosting our June Summer Social get together. A great evening catching up with members and enjoying the bbq by the King Alfreds Head.
April Meeting 2017
A slightly unusual meeting this month, as we gathered in the Swan Pub in Wantage for an informal social get together. A chance for some members to demonstrate how they had spent much of their youth.
February Meeting 2017
Thank you very much Umami Deli Wantage for hosting our February meeting. Great to see so many new faces who came along as guests.
Christmas Party 2016
On Tuesday 13th December members, friends and family, gathered at the King Alfred's Head for our annual Christmas Party. We were entertained by the Voices of the Vale Community Choir, who encouraged us all to join in with traditional carols.
Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday was back once again on 3 December. This is a fantastic opportunity to shop local and celebrate the small businesses in Wantage. Once again Wantage and District Chamber of Commerce supported the event. Here are just a few images of some of our local businesses being recognised for all their hard work.
This year we gathered at the Loyd Lindsey Rooms in Ardington. We were entertained by the Ardington and Lockinge Singers and enjoyed a delicious buffet and drinks.
During the evening we were lucky enough to be joined by many past presidents of the Chamber who were presented with commemorative pins to thank them for their services.
