A networking organisation that was the brainchild of a Keighley businessman is launching a new group in Craven.

EB Networking (EBN) will stage its first Craven breakfast meeting at Utopia in Broughton Hall Business Park from 7.30am on Wednesday, May 7.

The group is the fourth set up by EBN, founded two years ago by security specialist David Lalor. The existing branches cover Keighley, Wharfedale and Harrogate.

Co-directors Matthew Kay and Chris Cooper will run the new group, which will draw its membership from areas including South Craven.

Mr Kay said: “Since the demise of Business Link in 2012, EBN groups have plugged a gap and proved integral to effective business education, growth and coaching. There was an obvious void in the Craven area, and we are taking steps to fill it.”
