As the year starts to draw to a close why not join Essex Chambers of Commerce for our Annual County Lunch once again being held in the delightful surroundings of Stock Brook Golf and Country Club in Stock near Billericay. This year, sponsored by our Patrons - MAG London Stansted Airport. 

Starting with a pre-lunch reception drink of mulled wine and non-alcoholic mocktails guests will have the opportunity to enjoy surprises and special guests that we have planned at this fantastic festive event while also networking with like-minded businesses. You will hear from Ken O'Toole, Chief Executive for MAG London Stansted Airport.
