THE Felixstowe Chamber of Commerce has announced a committee reshuffle following the departure of secretary Louise Berrill, who has stepped down after four years in the role to raise a family.

Ms Berrill, marketing manager for Beatons Chartered Accountants, has worked tirelessly for the chamber during her time as secretary.

She has agreed to remain available to the organisation to offer her help when required.

Tracey Laflin, a property specialist with Jackaman, Smith and Mulley Solicitors, and a recent new member of the committee, took over as secretary from July.

He said Ms Laflin was a respected professional and an ideal replacement for the role.

During her time with the chamber, Ms Berrilll worked full time at Beatons and in spite of much work being carried out from home, many of her duties took place during work time. Mr Dawes praised the support of Roger Beaton, managing director of the accountancy firm where she works and said without his support, the efficient functioning of the organisation would have suffered.

He was presented with three local paintings in recognition of his contribution.

Following the reorganisation, the chamber has a new phone number, 01394 279636. All written correspondence should be addressed to Felixstowe Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 168, Felixstowe, IP11 1AA.
