We see that Rayleigh Chamber of Trade have their AGM on April 21st. They are an important body for the town and they will be electing a President, Treasurer, Secretary, Membership Secretary and Social Secretary.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens- when we have been out canvassing in our elections we’ve picked up a few concerns from residents about the current trading conditions in the High Street.
In particular when we were out in the snow last weekend one chap spoke to us for a long time , suggesting that a small Tesco might have come back to the High Street if the council had had a different attitude. We’re not sure how true this is, but if anyone can give us more details we’d be pleased to know.
