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:
