One of our Chamber Members - Bridge Health & Wellbeing - is offering a Display Screen Equipment Assessment (DSE) by a qualified professional for all those staff who will be coming back to the office after lockdown. So many have been working from home and probably moving around more, dressed comfortably and taking regular breaks whereas once back in the office things might be quite different.
Paul O'Connell, physiotherapist and co-founder of Bridge Health & Wellbeing says "With staff finally able to come back to work, the last thing any employer wants is to lose them again due to health issues that could have been avoided. Our workplace wellbeing services can keep your staff at work or help them return to work quicker. From treating work-related musculoskeletal conditions and injuries through fast access to physiotherapy, to proactive wellbeing initiatives with DSE assessments combined with regular exercise classes and massage therapy services, we offer both standalone services or complete wellbeing packages.”
Give Paul a call on 01202 473800 to find out more. If you are a Chamber member, then there is a generous 20% discount!

Yellow Buses, one of the Chamber's long term members, are excited to be bringing back open top buses for 2021, with two new open top bus routes starting on this Friday 2nd April 2021 (Good Friday).
These routes will provide easy access to some of the best views across the Dorset Coast but especially through Christchurch to Hoburne and ending at Mudeford Quay with a return journey to Bournemouth Pier or Alum Chine.
The frequency of the routes will initially be lower and will increase as the summer progresses with the next uplift scheduled to start on Saturday 29th May 2021 (Whitsun). More info can be found on their website at www.yellowbuses.co.uk

The Captain’s Club Hotel is undergoing a major refurbishment and looking forward to welcoming guests to outside dining post-lockdown. At the same time, the Urban Health & Fitness Gym had the quandary of how to get their clients back to enjoying Yoga, Pilates and Zumba without an outdoor space. Perfect synergy fell in to place for the two Christchurch Chamber members, as Tim Lloyd MD of the Hotel and Manny Patel owner of Urban, got together, with Tim offering their spacious terrace for Manny’s clients from 12th April until they are allowed back inside for classes at the Gym on 17th May!
As Manny Patel says “It is the perfect solution for Urban Health & Fitness Gym, as we have no outdoor space to run our very popular Yoga, Pilates and Zumba classes whilst lockdown rules meant no indoor classes. Tim has very kindly offered their terrace and our clients are delighted too, as they see it as a way of getting back to normality again.”
Tim Lloyd commented: “This Christchurch business collaboration offers the perfect solution. Urban Fitness are currently restricted, whilst we have the ideal outside space, on the Captain’s Club Hotel Terrace. We are delighted to work together and offer Urban’s brilliant classes to their membership and our guests. For us the opportunity to work with Manny and his team at Urban is new and exciting, indeed, who knows what the future may hold?”

The Christchurch Chamber of Trade & Commerce, applaud these two independent member businesses in working together to find a solution which is not only a benefit to them, but also to the clients taking part, as exercise is so important for both mental and physical health especially in these difficult times.
