We won- funding to secure free networking in Stokesley!

As some of you might know, I have been involved in establishing a free business networking group for Stokesley and the surrounding areas.

'Thirsty Thursday' has been running since last November at The Mill in Stokesley and has so far attracted in the region of 150 businesses from all over Hambleton and Teesside.

What started as an idea whilst myself and Sue Thompson, from Catch Designs, were enjoying a cuppa having, met through Superfast North Yorkshire, has grown into quite an event!

We've had lots of great support and press coverage and now we are thrilled to announce that Thirsty Thursday has been awarded a grant by the LEP in Yorkshire + East Riding.

This is an immense achievement seeing as we only set out to 'meet for a glass of wine + gossip'. We are over the moon as we both put in a lot of (free) time and effort to make the events work. We have created a monster but we think (hope!) it is worth it!

Thank you to those that have supported and continue to support us.

We've got some exciting plans for the next few months.

We must also hugely thank Alex Cook and his team at The Mill- the ideal place for our event. And wine! You can follow what we do on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ThirstyThursdayStokesley and on Twitter https://twitter.com/TTStokesley - we will have a website coming soon!
