After saying she wants to join for years, Councillor Valerie Miles has stayed true to her word.

“I’ve threatened for years that I want to become a member,” Miles jokingly told My Bancroft Now. “I joined in a fashion to support and make sure that the chamber is here,” Miles went on to say.

“The chamber has always been an important piece of every community for businesses to come together,” she added.

Miles complimented the Chamber on the work they do in the community saying that the destination guide they put together is “one of the best magazines in the neighbourhood.” She said she gives it out to many of her clients that come to her real estate office in Town. “It’s a slick, slick product,” she added.

Miles says getting businesses to work together to better the community is important. “When tourism is strong, our business is strong,” Miles said.
