Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset


Burnham-on-Sea Chamber of Trade & Commerce is one of the largest Town Chambers in Somerset

Dozens of businesses have come together to promote Burnham-on-Sea to locals and visitors, to help guide the economic development of the town and to enjoy regular opportunities for networking and learning.

The Chamber believes that aspects of its work affect every business, however large or small, in the Burnham-on-Sea area. Your business is warmly invited to join us.

Current work and benefits of membership include:

A free listing in the online Burnham business guide here on Burnham-On-Sea.com. Categorised by business type, members will have their name, address, phone number, email and website displayed. The Chamber’s aim is for this to become the primary online business directory and source for links to all the town’s business websites. The business guide will be updated after the end of each month to reflect new joiners. The sooner you join, the sooner your business will be included!

Promotion of the shopping offer to visitors and locals through distribution of the Burnham-on-Sea Shoppers’ Guide.

Co-ordinating marketing and promotional initiatives with Burnham Town Team amongst members, including running events and competitions to bring shoppers into the town, e.g. Christmas Light switch on event and shop window competitions.

Relentlessly lobbying local government for improvements to the town’s infrastructure and facilities, and responding to consultations. The Chamber supported the successful ‘Save our Swimming Pool’ campaign, won the battle against Sedgemoor’s proposal to introduce all year round parking charges on the Esplanade, and is working to support the continuation of the annual fireworks display.

Regular contact through quarterly newsletters and general meetings.

Affiliation to the Somerset Chamber of Commerce www.somerset-chamber.co.uk. Chamber members receive a discount on subscription to both organisations and the Somerset Chamber extends its intra-member discount schemes on many services to members of affiliated Chambers, such as Burnham-on-Sea.

And of course, maintaining and extending the Christmas Lights display. The Committee works hard to secure grants from various tiers of local government meet the costs of the display but otherwise the cost falls to the Chamber.

All members receive a membership badge for their premises and an electronic membership badge for websites is available upon request. Read our constitution.
