Moordown Traders Association
The MTA was formed in March 2010. We are an enthusiastic group of business owners from the Moordown community that have come together to promote local trade and raise the profile of Moordown as a shopping and business destination.
We meet regularly, and work closely with the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce (BCTC), Bournemouth Council, elected Members and local media to ensure that the Moordown trading district is represented in a positive light.
We also strive to keep abreast of, and communicate to our members, any local / regional funding grants, business development opportunities and other initiatives that may benefit our trading community.
MTA Aims & Objectives
Our number one aim as a trade association is the promotion and advertising of our local businesses to the general public, both in Moordown and the wider community.
Second is to liaise closely with Bournemouth Chamber and Bournemouth Council to ensure we benefit from all available grants, help and advice
Thirdly, to create a strong network amongst the members of MTA to help promote one another's businesses to potential customers.
