Merger with North Craven Networking

North Craven Networking Group has now officially merged with the hub. It has been run since 2011 by one of our directors, Jo, and we have decided to bring the two groups together.

North Craven Networking is a collection of local business folk, community groups and charities. The group started in October 2011 in Settle but has expanded and now covers Bentham, Ingleton, Malham and also some Skipton and Keighley businesses. 

The Networking Group meet monthly for free informal lunchtime networking meetings in a wide range of local venues and monthly business breakfasts are held at The Brasserie in The Courtyard on the A65 near Settle. A monthly blogging group also meets at the hub.

Over the years Jo has build up excellent relations with a range of training providers, funders and other local business
organisations and keeps members informed about local business news and other events.

The merger allows the hub to be a physical HQ for the networking group and we will be running some low cost small group business workshops later in the year. Listening Skills for Business, Dementia Awareness for shop and bank staff, PR and Press Releases, Marketing as well as social media and email marketing are in the pipeline.. more info to follow. 

In the hub we also have many local business cards as well as information on training, apprenticeships, business funding and more.
