THREE Lancashire Chambers of Commerce have praised a county-wide networking event which was held in East Lancashire.

Representatives from East Lancashire, West Lancashire and Lancaster gathered at Ribble Court Business Centre in Shuttleworth Mead Business Park, Padiham, in April.

The venue, which is run by Business First, was launched at the end of 2013 as a commercial base for both Group First staff and a range of other business tenants.

Business First’s operations director, Sarah Hall was enthusiastic about the turnout.

She said: “We had a fantastic turnout and it was an excellent opportunity to meet new contacts, get noticed and make sure that people across the region are talking about you and your business.”
