Dales business group announces new networking and co-working sessions

Thornborough Hall.

A Dales business group has announced new weekly networking and co-working sessions.

The Wensleydale Business Group will run the free sessions n in May, June and July in The Oak Room at Thornborough Hall, Leyburn.

A spokesperson for the group said: “A vibrant and successful local economy is in part due to a collaborative and supportive business environment.

“Home-working has removed a lot of the social contact that we have traditionally enjoyed when the bulk of our work was done in the office or workplace, so The Wensleydale Business Group want to try and invigorate our local business environment by running a series of free networking and co-working sessions.”

Session dates are:

  • 9th May
  • 23rd May
  • 6th June
  • 20th June
  • 4th July
  • 18th July

If the sessions are successful the group aims to arrange to run them as a regular event but there will be a small charge involved to cover room hire, refreshments etc.

Networking will take place from 9am to 10.30am and will be semi-structured but informal, with no referrals required.

Co-working will take place from 10.30pm to 1pm in the same room.

Organisers say you can attend one of the elements with no pressure to attend the entire session.

The spokesperson added: “We want to encourage a sense of community within the businesses of Wensleydale and to foster the knowledge that we are not alone, there is support available for those that want or need it.

“There will be a representative from the York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub available at most meetings to answer questions about business support available to businesses in the area.”
