Harrogate BID's networking first event in 14 months is returning on Thursday, June 3 to be held at Cedar Court Hotel’s Tipi on The Stray.

The networking event, which was last held a week before the first Covid lockdown in March, is being staged from 5.30pm on Thursday, June 3, in Cedar Court Hotel’s Tipi on The Stray giving business owners, managers and their staff the chance once again to get together, mingle, and chat with their peers over a drink and nibbles..

It will also be an opportunity to meet the new Harrogate BID Manager, Matthew Chapman, Chair Sara Ferguson, and other Harrogate BID directors, a number of whom joined the board at last year’s AGM.

Matthew Chapman said: “I’m really looking forward to our first BID Club in more than 14 months, and getting to meet those whose businesses who help make Harrogate a great place to shop, eat and drink.

“Because the last 12 months have been challenging for every single business, we are opening this BID Club to all town centre businesses, not just levy payers or BID members. The previous BID Clubs were always well attended, and I am sure this will prove equally popular.”

Because there are still Covid restrictions in place, Harrogate BID is asking those who want to attend to register for the event by emailing [email protected]
