About Us

Ely Cathedral Business Group was established to get local business people together and to get them thinking and talking about things that matter.

Business activity is a vital component of a balanced and flourishing human society. We rely on successful businesses for the production of all the goods and services on which our communities depend. Business creates the wealth which, through taxation funds our public services, which enables charities to operate, drives research and development of new technologies, funds the arts - the list goes on.

Get together - be part of this unique fusion between Ely Cathedral and the Cambridgeshire business community.

Get thinking - identify common issues, be part of the debate, share experiences, help your business by helping others.

Get talking - get to know fellow businesses, promote a greater sense of co-operation and community. Work together to solve the problems which are affecting business and society.
