‘We are Sherburn’ Launch EventThe Motorist, Sherburn-in-Elmet

Due to the extensive growth of Sherburn-in-Elmet, both in terms of population and the expansion of the business and industrial parks a new collaborative group has been formed.

‘We are Sherburn’ is a non-profit community interest company that aims to help businesses, education and the community to thrive and grow alongside each other. It was set up by local business and community leaders to provide free knowledge and information to all who live and work in the town.

Businesses and local community groups will have the opportunity to join We Are Sherburn as members to receive benefits and join the group to join up the dots between business, community and education.

A new website has been created, www.wearesherburn.co.uk, which will also link to the well established www.sherburninelmet.co.uk. All members will receive a premium listing here, making it easier for potential customers to find them. Benefits will also include an advertisement in The Resident publication to reach over 5000 homes. The publication is sent out four times a year to the residents of Sherburn-in-Elmet and South Milford, and will feature a We Are Sherburn section across four pages, allowing for members to be advertised on those pages with spotlight opportunities throughout the year. The first Thursday of every month will see meetings being held at varying locations with breakfast and refreshments included. Signing up early for membership will see a 10% discount on the first year.

On the 14th of September 2023 there will be a free to attend launch event at the Motorist for members and non-members to attend. The event lasts three hours with the breakfast event running from 8:30-11:30, and the afternoon/early evening event 16:30-19:00.

We encourage business owners, community groups, charities and other service providers to come along and promote their cause.
