Thursday 1st August is Yorkshire Day – a day dedicated to celebrating the beautiful, vibrant and innovative county of Yorkshire – and Get Ahead VA is very proud to be part of this wonderful region. To celebrate this special day, we wanted to let you know how we can help your Yorkshire-based business to grow.
What is Yorkshire Day?
Yorkshire Day is an annual celebration of the county of Yorkshire, promoting the county’s towns, beauty spots and top attractions through special promotions, festivals, art, culture, food and drink. This year the main celebrations will be held in Whitby, where representatives from across the county will come together to show off the best that Yorkshire has to offer.
Yorkshire and small business
Yorkshire Day also shines a spotlight on many local businesses, especially those in the hospitality, retail, food and entertainment industries. And, indeed, there are many small businesses to celebrate here. Statistics from 2018 show that Yorkshire boasts around 400,000 SMEs in total,* and Yorkshire and the Humber is ranked 7th out of 12 regions for the number of companies, providing around 6% of the total companies in the UK.† There is lots of business development going on the region, as well as plenty of scope for further growth – and that’s where Get Ahead VA can help.
