Chamber member - Rachel Linsted from Firecracker updated us on the services she can support and provide.  From funding and voucher opportunities to help grow business in Lincolnshire.  Rachel has a great deal of experience across many sectors and in particular the food and drink industry.  Call Rachel if you need any guidance or signposting. 

Good Taste Lincolnshire - An update regarding the new publication in January was well recieved and all thought it was a good idea to have an annual coffee tabel browser to fulfil the consumer appetite for more information about Lincolnshire food and drink produce. 

Events - General call for event information to publicise members on the web site and in print.

Select Awards - Feedback was that the event was great but the application process was qute time consuming.  The launch for 2018 will be earlier in the year to give members plenty of time to prepare their submissions.  The Select Awards are a good preparation ground for those who  wish to take part in the Visit England Awards.  More details can be found here.  Further updates about the opening for the 2019 Visit England will be posted as they happen.

Select Awards 2018 ceremony will be 9th October at Lincoln Minster School.  The venue was such as success members asked if we can go back there.  Watch this space for updates 

Chamber Forums -  Select memebrs were asked to show their interest in supporting the food and drink forum at Chamber Board Level.  Some people have already shown an interest and further applicants can register their interest by emailing select  The decision on Forums will be concluded in Spring 2018.
