The next business forum is at The Spa, Bridlington on Tuesday 17 May.

The vision for Bridlington’s regeneration is to be a great place to live, work and visit. During May we will see the much anticipated opening of East Riding Leisure Bridlington, which should be another reason for Bridlington to be a “Great” place to visit, as well as offering superb facilities for all our residents.

To make Bridlington a “Great” place to work, there is a reliance on our local businesses. Every meeting of Bridlington Business Forum is seeing increasing numbers of local business people coming together to join forces and develop the local economy, to provide the much needed local jobs, and a wide range of businesses to meet the needs of the local community and visitors to the area. Recent meetings have had a tourism theme, with exciting developments led by our local businesses including new events and improvements to business networking and communications planned in the near future.

On Tuesday 17 May, the next meeting of Bridlington Business Forum will be aimed at all local businesses with a range of reports and information that should be of interest to all those who are running a business in the local area.

For town centre and harbour businesses there will be the latest update on plans for the 2016 Seafood Festival – bigger and better than last year, and staying visitors have already booked to stay in the town for the weekend programme over 8-10 July. There will be a presentation on the planned major highway improvements for the town centre, due to start later this year.

Representatives from East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s business service team, based at Bridlington Business Centre, will be on hand with information about business support available in the local area. There will also be exciting updates from a range of local learning establishments that are offering the latest approaches to improving the skills of the local workforce, including innovative ways of preparing our local young people to become the workforce of the future.

If you have a business in the local area and would like to get involved in Bridlington Business Forum, then please come along to The Spa Bridlington.

Doors will open at 5.15pm for the formal meeting to start at 6pm, or for more information call Bridlington Renaissance Office at Bridlington Town Hall on 01482 391708.
