Full Event Programme
In partnership with Inspire we hold a series of breakfasts, lunches, seminars and workshops bringing business together for a range of personal development sessions and networking opportunities.
What we do ...
The chamber is actively involved in the local planning process for the future development of Chippenham to help make it a great place to live work and visit. We provide constant feedback into the recently formed Chippenham BID and we were a key stake holder in developing Chippenham Connected as part of the BID initiative. We also work closely with Chippenham Town Council and Wiltshire Council to help develop the town and its facilities in the best way to take advantage of our existing assets and provide new opportunities.
By developing new partnerships and improving communications between business, Wiltshire Council and regional agencies, we want to encourage economic growth and make Chippenham an attractive proposition for expansion and investment. Our main objectives are to increase our involvement in the local community and to promote and represent our members.
We hold a bi-monthly Networking lunch at Chippenham Golf Club and our members can also attend our Inspire workshops and seminars

Chippenham is a historic market town, which has now grown to become the second largest settlement in Wiltshire.
The town has thrived due to its strategic location and excellent communication links and sits between Swindon to the East and Bath to the West. Chippenham has a vibrant population of 45,000 people all located within 3 miles of junction 17 of the M4 Motorway and located on the main line railway running from London to Bristol.
Key to Chippenham's future is the combination of enterprise, quality of lifestyle and environment. At the towns heart is the River Avon, with its associated parks and strong recreational facilities.
Importance of Education
The future of the Town is underpinned by three excellent 3 secondary schools, 10 primary schools and Wiltshire College.
Schools & Colleges ...
We also work closely with local schools and colleges to improve the links between businesses and schools with a view to ensuring that schools and their pupils have a better understanding of what businesses require. In conjunction with the expansion of Wiltshire College, work experience will be our main focus during 2018.
