Ballymena Borough Chamber of Commerce & Industry President Alan Stewart has spoken about the difficult trading conditions still affecting business.
He encouraged businesses from across the Borough to pull together and support each other after handing out prizes to winners of a Christmas window dressing competition.
He added that the Chamber would continue to host regular networking events and specialised training workshops.
“All businesses, large and small can benefit from our membership and the regular business services we provide,” he said.
Alan presented the NI Hospice with a cheque for £3,200 and thanked everyone who attended this year’s highly successful Business Awards for their very kind donations towards the cause.
