Three Parishes Means Business


Three Parishes means Business is a FREE support package for businesses and community enterprises in Weston Rhyn, St Martins and Gobowen.

Suitable for businesses at all stages in their development cycle, from the germ of an idea to businesses that have been established for many years, Three Parishes means Business aims to help local businesses access the support that they need to grow and thrive.

Training
Marches Growth Hub ShropshireA wide range of training courses and other business events are organised by Marches Growth Hub, many of which are free of charge to  attend.  Three Parishes Means Business can cover travel expenses for local business people to attend these events. We also offer grants for places on training courses that are tailored or specific to your line of work.  Please contact us to find out more.

In early 2020, we will be launching a programme of free training courses, delivered locally, covering subjects from Marketing to Instagram to building your brand. Look out for further details on our facebook page and in our email newsletter.

Small grants and loans
We have created a fund for grants and loans of up to £500 for small businesses that need a cash injection to take that next steps or for new businesses to help get off the ground.

Please contact us to find out more.

Co-working
Co working is a great way for people who usually work on their own to occasionally share a workspace with others. Ideal for people who run their own home-based business, or anyone that is employed and works from home.

We currently provide 5 co-working days per month across the villages of Gobowen, St Martins & Weston Rhyn. These are free for anyone who lives of works in the area, and are a great way of meeting and networking with other local business people.

Please click here for details of venues and dates.

You are welcome to come to any of the sessions for the entire day, or just to drop in for a couple of hours. Use of the space is free and booking isn’t essential but it does help us to know how many people to expect so please let us know if you are planning to come along.  

Parking, wi-fi, tea, coffee and biscuits all provided. Bring your laptop and your lunch if you plan to stay all day!

If you are interested in co-working but these dates don't suit you, please get in touch.

For more information, or to book a place, please contact us.

Business Directory
We are developing a business directory element to this website and we will be asking businesses to sign up for their free listing in early 2020.
