Businesses in the Selby and Sherburn-in-Elmet area have pulled together to manage the challenges of lockdown thanks to the Elmet and Selby Business Forum.

The Forum was created in January 2020 through a partnership between Selby District Council and businesses Cranswick Gourmet Bacon and Whitewing Recruitment and Training Services.

As well as sharing best practice, ideas and knowledge among businesses, the Forum has also supported an apprenticeship programme to develop talent.

Councillor David Buckle, Lead Executive Member for Communities and Economic Development at Selby District Council said: “The Elmet and Selby Business Forum is a great example of the shared drive and initiative across all sectors in Selby district to collectively support enterprise and business growth.

“There is a huge amount of strength to be drawn from sharing best practice, knowledge and experiences across local businesses and the Business Forum has made this easily achievable for the benefit of all members.”

The next meeting of the Business Forum will be on Monday June 28, 8.30am at the Motorist in Sherburn.

Tickets can be obtained online: Elmet & Selby Business Forum & Network Tickets, Mon 28 Jun 2021 at 08:30 | Eventbrite
