Chamber News


A new forum has been added to the Chamber community. It can be found at  and in the Forum link in the menu.

A place for Chambermates to discuss ... well whatever they want. Suggestions on structure/rules/categories etc are welcome (and needed).

Please enjoy!

Membership will require admin approval, to help keep the spammers and haters out, and we are going to keep this a safe space - so any bad behaviour will be deal with by banning the offender.

We are an extraordinary site for a public forum, with very little discord and I would very much like to keep it that way. It is an oasis to be able to spend time in the Chamber without all the rubbish that goes on in the wider social media world.

Running Costs

It is that time of the year again, where we ask for you help in covering the ongoing costs of keeping this site running and ad-free. The last time we ran a donation drive was in 2014 and raised enough to get us through until now. The more we can buy up front, the more we insulate ourselves from price hikes.

Hosting costs have increased significantly over the last 2 years and it costs $167.88 per year for hosting now, or $287.64 for 3 years if we can raise the extra $120 to cover a much cheaper 3 year period. The other costs include $19.99 per year for the domain and $29.30 per year for the chat box.

Total required for a year: $217.17
Total required for 3 years: $435.51 (which equates essentially to 1 year for free)

There is a donate link on the home page underneath the stats, to donate via paypal. Or you can use this link:


Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated and even the smallest amounts accumulate and help enormously. The Chamber makes no profit from these donation drives and every cent raised is spent on running costs. Everything else on the site is a labor of love.

Without asking for donations, the only other options are to sell advertising space or let it go under. So we humbly ask for your...
