NEXT MEETING

ELECTION CALL 2
Monday 13th April 2015 - 18.00 to 20.30

Harrogate, Knaresborough and Boroughbridge business owners and managers are invited to this important meeting on Monday 13th April from 18.00 to 20.30.

The Harrogate & Knaresborough constituency will be a key battleground in the Parliamentary Election due on 7th May. The seat has been held by Conservative Andrew Jones since 2010, when he beat Lib Dem candidate Claire Kelley by just 1,039 votes.  Prior to that, the MP was Lib Dem Phil Willis (now Lord Willis of Knaresborough) who had been the town’s MP since famously beating Conservative high flyer Norman Lamont in the 1997 General Election.

Each candidate will outline their policies in five minutes and then take questions from the business community on the key issues affecting the local economy.   

As capacity is limited all who wish to attend must pre-register by emailing full business contact details to info@harrogatechamber.org by Friday, 10th April.

NEW BUSINESS MENTORING OFFERED AT YBM15

Top business coaches to offer free mentoring to new businesses

 An innovative mentoring scheme will be on offer for the first time at Yorkshire Business Market this year.

A team of business mentors will be offering one-to-one sessions to support people who have launched a new business in the last year, or are planning to do so soon.

The programme is the latest announcement in the Chamber’s drive to support start-up businesses at Yorkshire Business Market, which takes place at Pavilions of Harrogate on Monday, April 27. They have already introduced a new Start-Up Zone, where new businesses in their first year of trading can book a micro-stand for a significantly reduced cost compared to the standard prices.

CHAMBER WELCOMES ELECTRIFICATION CAMPAIGN SUCCESS

5th March 2015:

After six years of campaigning, Harrogate Chamber of Trade and Commerce has welcomed the announcement that the Harrogate rail line has been prioritised by the Government for electrification.

Chief Executive Brian Dunsby said: "This is absolutely excellent news for everyone concerned, and the result of extensive hard work and campaigning over many years.

"Improving the rail service with electrification will make an enormous difference to Harrogate. As well as modern rolling stock, which is something we have needed for many years, we will benefit from increased frequency, shorter journey times, and services earlier in the morning and later in the evening, seven days a week.
