A huge crowd of people attended the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Business social on Thursday night.

The event took place in the old CPR station, which is currently being renovated in preparation of becoming the new home of the local chamber.

Executive director Tom Thomson said if all goes to plan, the building should be ready by December 2015.

The chamber also plans to rent out office and retail space in the newly renovated facility.
