Full export documentation service but events postponed
March 17, 2020
As a key business representative body, the welfare and safety of our members, team, stakeholders, and the wider community is our first priority.
The Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce team remains fully available and will continue to work with our members and key stakeholders and can be reached via telephone and email as usual.
Please see the update below on key the measures Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce is taking to comply with government guidelines as the UK enters the fast growth stage to minimise the spread of the virus, while also helping to support our members during this time:
- Our communications services and platforms continue to operate as normal. Please continue to send all your communications to us as usual and our website services continue operating as normal
- Our export documentation service also continues to operate with full staff availability. We do however request that where possible, customers use post or access our online ExportCert service. For any queries relating to this please contact 01223 237414
- In respect of events, in accordance with official government guidelines and safety measures we have postponed until the end of April 2020 all our planned events and training courses to stop non-essential contact with others. This will be reviewed in line with updated guidelines at the end of April and we will inform accordingly
- On the policy front, Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce continues to lobby hard on behalf of our members. In conjunction with the British Chambers we are taking a strong message of “DO MORE” to the government. We will be working hard today pushing Whitehall for details on how businesses can access the support schemes announced in last week’s Budget as well as the urgent delivery of further measures to support businesses and the economy which we are expecting the Chancellor to set out later today. We very much welcome any feedback you may have on how Covid-19 is impacting on your business – and suggestions of what the Government could do to help you navigate this difficult period. Please contact John Bridge at email@example.com
- We also refer you to the Government website at http://bit.ly/Covid-19Guidance to help mitigate the risks of contracting Covid-19 and preventing further spread.
Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce is taking these measures in line with the incredible efforts our member companies are making to safeguard employee health and wellbeing, and to prevent any unnecessary risks or spread to the wider community.
We will issue further guidance and updates as required, however in the interim, please do keep in touch with us – we are here to help.
