What are the 3 Chambers?


Our 3 Chambers of Trade are the principal link between the local commercial and business community providing it with a voice both locally and nationally. We work in partnership with numerous private and public sector bodies and are committed to providing local businesses with practical and relevant support.

The Chambers provides a platform for businesses to communicate, providing the local businesses the opportunity to network and work with each other. With our links with Rochford District Council and FSB, the 3 Chambers work together to provide support to businesses and individuals, helping the future prosperity of our local communities.

Whether you are based in Rayleigh, Hockley, or Rochford areas, you can join your local Chamber, knowing that you are part of a larger organisation spanning the entire Rochford district. We have a range of events and support across the district, from networking to business seminars. We also keep you informed about other local business news and developments with our association with Rochfrod District Council

Hockley Chamber of Trade

Chairman - Jeff Stanton

Supported by a strong back-up team, I have represented the Chamber at meetings with the Parish and District Councils, working with the Council to support local events.
I feel that especially now during tough trading conditions on the High Street, businesses should work together to improve their image and attract more customers.
