The chamber used the occasion to launch its new magazine Southwark Business Today which will be published five times a year.

Guests at the party included Rt Hon Simon Hughes MP, Lord Kennedy of Southwark and the Mayor of Southwark Cllr Sunil Chopra.

Funds raised from a raffle held at the event will be shared between the Mayor of Southwark's nominated charities, the Robes Project and UK Homes 4 Heroes.
