Skipton Chamber of Trade supports the BID

Skipton Chamber of Trade and Commerce are fully behind the BID, and have no doubt that the levy is money well spent by its members.

Wendy Lee Griffin, Chamber co-ordinator, described Skipton BID as one of the leading examples of an organisation of its kind in the UK.

“Over the last ten years, its been fantastic to see how the business community funds have contributed to events and projects which have enhanced Skipton’s place in the nation’s heart,” she said.

“The Chamber loves to hear from visitors about how they came to a Skipton events and then returned, bringing more people with them.

“Skipton is repeatedly mentioned in the media as one of the happiest places to work and live, and it is a testament to the community spirit and support of the Skipton business community. Let’s continue the good work and vote for a BID third term.”

Skipton BID has long supported the Skipton Business Awards, providing foundation funding for the Skipton Chamber of Trade and Commerce event when it began in 2016.

Next year, it will be the headline sponsor for the awards.

Awards co-ordinator Wendy Lee Griffin said: “Thanks to the confirmation of headline sponsorship by the BID, the awards are secured for yet another year. 

“They provide a brilliant opportunity for companies in the area to showcase their quality products and services, offered both locally and around the world and we are really pleased that the BID is keen to invest again in championing local businesses this way.”
