CVBN - Colne Valley Business Network
the power of community on your doorstep


Colne Valley Business Network (CVBN) is a networking group that was started by Kirklees Council that aims to help businesses & organisations in the Colne Valley learn more about each other and though it has been dormant for a while we are getting it going again

the group is open to all: small, large, retail, industrial, creative arts, community project, education etc

the Colne Valley is a great place to live and work and this group aims to build better links between local businesses for the benefit of all


we have just had a really successful relaunch event, thank you to everyone that came, the speakers and of course the wonderful Dark Woods Coffee for their hospitality

another event will be in the planning soon, watch this space!

if you want to be kept updated about future events then just contact us and we look forward to keeping in touch


we normally have a couple of speakers from local businesses, this is not a sales pitch, but designed to help us all receive some useful information about current topics, also someone from Kirklees Council to allow us all to interact - this is not a Council bashing opportunity but provides a valuable occasion for the Council to interact with small businesses and for us to get our views over to KBC

if you would like to speak or have suggestions about what you would like to hear about then just get in touch


want to get involved?

all of us involved in this are volunteers and we need your help too, it needn't be much but please do shout out to us if you can help in any way at all



any business owners that fancy hosting an event then we would also love to hear from you, a great opportunity to showcase yourself
