Clwb Busnesau Hiraethog Business Club
Hiraethog Business Club is to carry on with funding from Brenig Wind Farm Grant
Hiraethog Business Club has been successful in getting a Community Benefit Grant from Brenig Wind Ltd. Hiraethog businesses had the opportunity to get together for the first time at an informal event in Pentrefoelas in January. The aim of the evening was to create an opportunity for businesses in the area to socialize and make new contacts and chat to each other over a cuppa. The focus of the first meeting was to invite some of Hiraethog’s most successful business people to share their experiences of running a business.
Running a business in the countryside can be very lonely at times so the evening was a chance to get together. As the evening had been very successful it was decided that it would be great to carry on the Club and form an important business network for the Hiraethog area. The intention is to invite guest speakers to the club to discuss topics that are very important when running a business.
The idea for such a club came to Councillor Garffild Lloyd Lewis and Eirian Pierce Jones, Hiraethog Development Strategy Co-organizer at the time. At the end of the first meeting of the Hiraethog Business Club the 40+ attendees were asked if they wanted to continue the Club and it was agreed instantly that the meetings should continue as there is no such club in the area. Nia Morris, the Welsh Business Officer for Conwy and Denbighshire Business has been successful with the Brenig Wind Lt Community Benefit Grant to carry on the Hiraethog Business Club. The grant will enable us to run a business club and have guest speakers to discuss a number of topics over the course of a year. Some topics we hope to discuss at the Club are connectivity, mental health, environment, grants and much more.
We look forward to hosting the second night of Hiraethog Business Club in the future once the situation with COVID-19 enables us. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on facebook Clwb Busnes Hiraethog Business Club.
