Running a Rural Business

Settle Community and Business Hub are delighted to announce we have some funding for a two year project from the Prince’s Countryside Fund to support rural businesses in a range of ways. This will be led by Jo Rhodes at hub and will expand on the work done since 2011 by the North Craven Networking Group which merged with the hub when it started in 2016.

We hold regular breakfast and lunchtime networking meetings and also work with business training providers to offer more training in rural areas. As part of the Princes Countryside Fund project we are supporting businesses keen to develop more online content so are offering some specialist small group workshops on: 

  • video skills
  • green screen filming
  • eCourse Creation
  • Course Planning
We are forming a resource team of local people to offer a team of mentors and people to act as a sounding board for new businesses or those wishing to change or wishing to diversify their offerings.

Please contact Jo for more information on: or phone 07977040329.
