Chamber Chairman thanks Treasurer Peter Richardson

After 15 years at the helm of the Kingsbridge Salcombe and Modbury Chamber of Commerce Peter Richardson, who has been keeping our finances in order since 2007 has decided to take a well-earned break. 

Chamber Chairman James Spencer had this to say: “Terrific thanks to the twinkle-eyed powerhouse that is our outgoing Treasurer, Peter Richardson. I’ve had the pleasure of sitting alongside Mr Treasurer Peter on our committee for a dozen years.

Peter has brought a safe pair of hands for funds but a generous pair when it’s counted too. For example, Peter’s good budget management paid off for our business community never more than during the pandemic, when reserves were reinvested under Peter’s stewardship into startups and businesses needing to make up for lost trading.

Through the Chamber I have made a level-headed, fun friend in Peter, so I am glad to say we won’t be strangers. Today, on behalf of all the committee and businesses who have benefitted from his efforts over more than two decades on the committee, thank you Peter.”
