Thank you to everyone who attended the June Champions Event.
Special thanks to our speakers Jo Dilley (Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire), Scott Knowles (East Midlands Chamber), Cllr Tricia Gilby (Chesterfield Borough Council) and Dom Stevens (Destination Chesterfield).

How do we encourage more people and businesses to shop and trade locally?
Now more than ever, we need to support Chesterfield and North Derbyshire to strengthen the local economy.
At this Zoom event, there will be a panel discussion around the benefits of supporting local, including current activity and ideas for the future. The discussion will be led by Dom Stevens from Destination Chesterfield, with delegates attending also invited to ask questions. Panel to be announced shortly.
