Holly berryLong Eaton Chamber of Trade Annual Dinner - 11th December 2014  

We enjoyed some wonderful quality food and service as well as having lots of fun and laughter along with some in-house entertainment on Thursday 11th December. Our thanks go to Neil Atkinson who produced the place settings in the form of a wooden plinth trophy with the logo, date and name printed onto it. Neil was also part of the entertainment when he gave a most amusing epistle about many of the members present. This  was also printed in the Ilkeston Advertiser, Long Eaton Website Extra and finally in the Derby Telegraph on December 30th.

Long Eaton Carnival 2014

The Long Eaton Chamber of Trade played its part again in this year's Long Eaton Carnival with two events.

The four week long challenge of "What's not my Line" (see article below) for shoppers in the Town Centre to spot items in 17 independent traders windows resulted in many entries with well over half getting the item that is not sold within each shop / business.

The winners (and the answers!!) can be viewed below.
The picture shows Long Eaton Chamber secretary Ray Terry announcing the winners.

Also at the Carnival the Chamber ran 3 Orienteering challenges which consisted of a Children's Challenge, Compass Challenge and Explore West Park.  This was organised by Michael Lucking the Chamber's Chairman with support form its members.

Whilst many took part in all three challenges by far the most popular was the Compass Challenge, which is an intellectual challenge to navigate around 9 posts set  in a 3m x 3m grid and electronically timed. 

Times varied from a low of 44 seconds by Adam Hurt Brown to most in the 1 to 2 minutes range.

All who entered learn a little more about the challenges that Orienteering.
