An enterprising trader has taken the first steps towards forming a chamber of commerce for Epworth.

Owner of NE1 Clothing, Mike Harm, (pictured working on the fledgling Epworth Chamber website – chamber03ar – Picture: Andrew Roe) is hoping the intiiative is taken up by other business people in the town. Mike said the scheme was in the early stages and would include an open forum website for the village. He added: “Currently we don’t have a recognised chamber. I am hoping that by taking these first steps other business owners will come on board and support this initiative. I feel something like this is needed to promote the town.”
