An open meeting took place last night of a number of representatives from local businesses in the town of Maghera. Facilitators for the meeting were John Burns and James Armour who welcomed all those who attended in particular Jimmy McCabe from the Magherafelt Chamber of Commerce. A very enthusiastic discussion ensued stating the advantages & disadvantages of having such a representative body giving a voice to the business community in the town. After much debate it was unanimously agreed that the formation of a Chamber of Commerce for the town should take place.
A follow up meeting has been arranged for the 11th November at 8pm in Walsh’s. The purpose of this meeting is to officially form a Chamber and appoint a chair, secretary, treasurer & committee. If you are a business in the town or surrounding district, whether large or small please come along to the meeting on the 11th, have your voice heard and be part of the establishing of another first for Maghera.
