About us

The Paddock Wood Business Association was originally established in 1947 as the Paddock Wood Chamber of Trade.

In October 2009 the name was changed to the Paddock Wood Business Association and since then we have been continually growing in number and working together to support local trade, commerce and industry.

PWBA is a voluntary organisation run by local business people to promote and encourage the development of trade, commerce and industry within our community and also to give local businesses a significant voice on the issues affecting the economic development and sustainability of Paddock Wood.

We are run by a working committee who meet at least once a month and we also hold full membership meetings quarterly as well as offering a range of networking opportunities, social events and training courses.
