Member Businesses in the Area:
“We have been working with Merton Chamber of Commerce since our inception. They have been an invaluable source of information and support on many of the issues that all start-ups face. In our case they have been particularly helpful with recruitment, training and most importantly, making introductions and general networking with the local business community. I would encourage all those looking to establish or grow their business in Merton to contact the Chamber at the first opportunity.”
