53 Degrees - Members' Contributions

The Chamber's monthly magazine, 53 Degrees has a number of key aims. We want to: inform our members about the Chamber's work, highlight some of the benefits of membership, let you know about forthcoming events, plus raise awareness of specific policy and business issues impacting upon you.

Each month, we'll also include interviews with key business and political figures, and highlight some of our members' achievements through in-depth articles and 'behind the scenes' features.

But, we'd also really like to hear from you and there are a number of ways you can contribute to 53 Degrees.

Member News

If you have some news you'd like to share with other Chamber members, let us know, and we may be able to include it in 53 Degrees. Ideally, we'd like your story or press release in no more than 300 words and we'd need the following information: the name and location of your business, the key contact or spokesperson, details about the news you'd like to share, contact information so we can get back to you if we need to, plus your website address. Feel free to send through an accompanying photo too if you have one, and we may be able to use it, space permitting!

Business Doctor

Each month a panel of experts talk about an issue affecting businesses. This is an ideal forum to show your expertise and help fellow members.


This is the place where you can highlight your forthcoming events, offers, and appeals for assistance from other members. Ideally, we'd like these to be kept short, so we'd need the details within 50-100 words, and make sure you include venues, locations and the all-important contact details.

Promotions, New Starters and Awards

If you're expanding your team, promoting your top employees or excelling in your field, we'd like to hear about it. Let us know: who, where, when, what you won and what for, and we'll make sure our members know exactly how well you're doing.


We always like to hear how well our members are doing, and if you have had a positive experience with another member business, we'd like to share it! It can be anything from, exceptional customer service, a fantastic meal or event, or a product or service that has really impressed you. Your review will need to include the name and location of your business, the name and location of the members' business you're reviewing, plus details of your experience. Again, pictures would be great if you have them, and we'll try and include as many as we can.
