Harrogate LIVE celebrates 2nd Birthday

Harrogate Live event

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 5:46pm 4th October 2018. (Updated at 4:29pm 5th October 2018)

Networking group Harrogate LIVE celebrated their second birthday recently and Stray FM went to see what the events are all about. 

Occurring the last Thursday of every month, the business networking community known as Harrogate LIVE has helped many local people through the last couple of years. 

Making contacts and promoting local independent trade is high on the list of priorities and as many attendees explained, the group has made a big difference to their businesses. 

Connecting local businesses, charities and community groups, Harrogate LIVE has had a very successful couple of years and during their monthly meet-up at Betty's in Harrogate on Thursday 27th September 2018 Stray FM's Beth Parsons went along to discover more.  

We spoke to so many people!
