Welcome To The Lower Wensleydale Business Network

“If we provide information and leadership and promote discussion; if we pull together the knowledge, experience and strength of local business people, we can create opportunities that will benefit not only our own businesses, but also the whole local community.”

Richard Sanderson, Chairman of the Lower Wensleydale Business Network

The Lower Wensleydale Business Network, which now covers Bedale, Leyburn and the surrounding areas is an organisation established to:

  • Support the development of existing businesses.
  • Promote the establishment of new businesses.
  • Develop and promote a business friendly environment.

Networking events are held monthly, either meeting over breakfast or in the evening with light refreshments. These events allow members the opportunity to showcase their businesses, discuss business issues and share information with other members in a relaxed and friendly environment.
