Who are we?

The Garstang & District Chamber of Trade and Commerce, and now often known simply as Independent Garstang Traders, were formed in 1974. We now have over 100 members and growing both commercial and professional.

We receive no public funding and rely entirely on the subscriptions of our members in order to operate. All of our officers give their time on a voluntary basis.

What do you get for your membership?

A strong voice. Collectively local Garstang busniesses can make an impact on issues that affect the success of the area.

Community spirit. The Chamber is involved in projects and the very heart of our local community.

Garstang Show. We have our own marquee where you’re welcome to come along and sell your products and services. Members receive a large discount based on standard stall prices.

Meetings. We hold quarterly meetings to discuss issues in our town. These are very informal and anyone can speak.

Networking meetings. We’re introducing new networking meetings away from our standard meetings. An informal way to meet other local businesses. Chamber members can access these meetings free of charge.

Social networks. Our Facebook presence is growing and you can have full access to that. Share your products and services to get yourself out to a wider audience.

Events. We hold many events throughout the year. You’re welcome to join in!

Insurance. Perhaps often overlooked, our members also help cover the insurances we need to hold events. This includes our Easter egg hunts, Halloween events and the Victorian Christmas Festival.
