A MONTH long programme of events to support businesses in the area will soon be making its return.

Denbighshire’s March for Business month will feature 23 varied events including social media training, networking events with the Federation of Small Businesses and West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce and an event for young entrepreneurs.

Cllr Hugh Evans, leader of Denbighshire, said: “We designed this year’s programme to meet the needs of businesses in the county.

“March for Business offers firms the chance to network and get expert advice around issues that matter to them.

“The focus of March for Business was devised following feedback from our annual business survey and shows the Council is listening to businesses and offering them support to suit their needs.”

Lizzie Peters, from Phoenix Optical Technologies - an optical manufacturing firm based on St Asaph Business Park, attended the Denbighshire for Growth event at last year’s March for Business.

She said: “I found out about companies I hadn’t heard of previously and gained new connections in training and other industries.” For more information or to book visit www.denbighshire.gov.uk/marchforbusiness
