Champion of Morecambe steps away from Chamber of Commerce role

John O'Neill

A champion of Morecambe is stepping away from his role with the area's Chamber of Commerce.

John O'Neill has been commercial manager of Lancaster & Morecambe Chamber of Commerce for eight years.

Mr O'Neill is also the manager of Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID), a role he will be continuing.

He is well known in the local area as a dedicated and passionate spokesman for the town and the wider district.

"I’d like to thank the Chamber team and board for the last eight years," said Mr O'Neill.

"In my time we’ve seen the great response to Storm Desmond, the opening of the Bay Gateway and the awarding of the biggest Levelling Up fund in the country to Eden Morecambe – all of which the Chamber has been heavily involved in.

"I’ve made some great friendships and connections in the last eight years.

"I will still be running the Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID) and remain a staunch advocate of the District as I believe it’s one of the best places to live and work in the UK so you haven’t totally got rid of me!"

A spokesperson for the Chamber said Mr O'Neill "has been a strong and consistent voice on behalf of our members, helping to represent the views of businesses in Lancaster and Morecambe on key issues as well as supporting the wider team during maternity leave and welcoming new members".

"We would like to thank John for the last eight years with the Chamber, all of the team will miss his passion for this area that he has made his home, his very dry sense of humour and for those of you who were lucky enough to meet John, his unique shirts!" said the spokesperson.

"We appreciate everything John has done for Lancaster & Morecambe Chamber of Commerce, his unwavering support during his time with us has been invaluable and we want to publicly thank him for the last eightr years. We wish you all the best in whatever the future holds."

Any thanks and well wishes from our members (past and present) for John, can be sent to the Chamber Office: Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, c/o Lancaster & Morecambe College, Morecambe Rd, Lancaster, LA1 2TY or via email to: hello@lancaster-chamber.org.uk.

All correspondence will be passed on to John by the team. Queries that would normally be emailed across to John can be sent to: graham@lancaster-chamber.org.uk
