Medway Champions Meeting – May 2024

Our May Medway Champions Breakfast meeting takes place at our wonderful place of The Historic Dockyard Chatham, as we celebrate all things 40!  This will be a combined breakfast celebration as not only will we hear from our hosts The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust but also from Medway African Caribbean Association.  We will hear how both organisations have been a crucial part of the development of our Place of Medway and how both have undergone significant transformations.  As always, our breakfast meeting will be both informative and inspiring.

Engaging with our businesses and residents and young people is a vital part of our strategy in order to meet our objective as well as developing a clear sense of purpose and direction for Medway, our place – our aim was always to tell our story from our people and businesses point of view supported by a powerful marketing toolkit.

Medway Champions scheme has been created to bring businesses, voluntary organisations and residents together to support our place plan. Since its launch in June 2018, our Medway champion programme has seen Medway’s business communities join forces to promote Medway and further boost the economy by supporting and promoting the Medway story. Over 300 businesses and organisations have joined us and keen to stand up for the area and play a part in raising its profile.
