Additional free business support sessions are being organised as part of an Enterprise Day in Selby, to meet demand from local companies who want to take advantage of the help on offer.
On Thursday 5 June over 35 companies will be exhibiting at the event including local businesses showcasing themselves along with funding organisations, accountants and much more, to be held at the Civic Centre, Doncaster Road, where there will also be free help for companies who want to find out more about social media marketing, funding and improving productivity.
