Long Lunch success

More than 100 people attended the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce Long Lunch in the Cambridge Town Hall on Friday July 1.

A selection of artisan products, wine and entertainment from the Nairobi Trio – down to a duo due to illness – set up an energetic vibe.

Chamber chief executive Kelly Bouzaid said it was wonderful to show off the Town Hall dressed to impress.

“We had an afternoon of casual networking at its best and there was a real vibe in the room.”

A raffle held during the lunch raised $1445 for Waikato Hospice.
