Pivotal Year for Transport
The successful Chamber networking evening at Jamie’s Italian Restaurant on Wednesday 21st January allowed me to speak about some of the positive developments currently taking place in the town.
To recap, the upgrading of High Street pavements is once again underway as is the Brewery Phase II programme and the development of the old Haines & Strange site. Good news, indeed. Read more.
Centre Director, Regent Arcade
Noted as one of the retail destinations in the Southwest, Cheltenham's success has been due in no small measure to John's stewardship of the Regent Arcade. John has had a long, successful retail career, culminating as the Arcade's Centre Director. On the verge of retirement, we thought it opportune to get John's perspective on his career, the retail industry in Cheltenham and the UK, and his advice to new entrants in this ever-changing competitive industry.

Investment in Our Town
Chamber Deputy CEO Jon Leamon
In our role of representing all business interests in Cheltenham, we are regularly approached by the Borough Council for feedback on proposed investment and expenditure on infrastructure. I’m sure most people will be aware that the Council sold the North Place and Portland Place car parks for £7.8m last year and this sum is to be reinvested in our town. There may also be further funds available to supplement this.
We would appreciate your feedback on how this money should be spent. Read more.
