OTLEY Chamber of Trade will be holding meetings again after an absence of 18 months.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 21 members will be meeting at Westbourne House. Speakers will address the East of Otley Development which has provoked strong feelings for and against. There will also be a short presentation on the Otley Lido project.

A spokesman said: "After a long absence from physically meeting in the same room and having to rely on Zoom meetings, it will be good to have everyone together once again.Westbourne House is a very spacious venue with good ventilation and plenty of hand sanitiser. Refreshments will be served from 5.30pm with the meeting starting at 6pm. All Otley businesses are welcome, members of the chamber and also any business who are not members.

"These meetings are a great way for businesses to meet and voice their concerns, we may not have all the answers but we can certainly offer our pearls of wisdom and try to point you in the right direction. Very soon we will be launching the Business Awards , so if you have any questions about this event, please just ask one of the members."
