KEIGHLEY Business Club staged its summer lunch at the town’s golf club.

The event brought together businesses from across Keighley and Airedale, for networking.

Host was TV journalist and presenter, Harry Gration.

And guest speaker was Ian Smyth, from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership.

He talked about a range of topics, from the Local Industrial Strategy to productivity gaps in the region, and there was a question-and-answer session.

Paul Howard, manager of Keighley Business Improvement District, said the networking events always proved popular.

“With a wide range of businesses attending some great relationships are formed,” he added.

“We’ve got more of these events planned, so anyone who would like to attend should please get in touch.”
