The state of the local economy will be under the spotlight at the next meeting of Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce.
The Bank of England’s deputy agent will be speaking about the local and regional picture and looking ahead to the coming year.
Will Holman, who leads the organisation in Yorkshire and the Humber, gathers information from local businesses and reports regularly to Mark Carney on how the region is faring.
Chamber chief executive Sandra Doherty said: “It has been an eventful year for business, with the effects of local, regional, national and international events still being felt.
“Anecdotally, the picture in our area is very mixed, with some businesses doing well and others struggling. This is a great opportunity to find out directly from the Bank of England what is really happening in our region, and what might lie ahead for all of us in the coming months.”
The open meeting will be held at the St George Hotel, Ripon Road, Harrogate on Monday, October 9. Networking begins at 5.30pm, with the meeting starting at 6.15pm.
Attendance is free for members and first-time visitors, but places need to be booked in advance via the website, www.harrogatechamber.co.uk. Any repeat visitors can attend for £15 per person.
