Formed in June 2012, Chinnor Buzz is an independent group of Chinnor businesses with support from the Chinnor Parish Council, whose aim is to provide support and a forum for the businesses in the village, and also to help promote Chinnor as a destination for business, trade and tourism. However, although most residents in the village will be familiar with the shops and pubs in Chinnor, there are a large number of other small businesses in Chinnor, many working from home. Part of the rationale for forming the group was the realisation that these businesses may feel isolated and that providing a forum for them to share their knowledge, learn from each other and also to create one voice for them to express their views would be extremely useful.
