New initiatives see town’s leading organisations unite to showcase the best of Huddersfield
Four of Huddersfield’s leading organisations have come together to champion the town under the banner of ‘Our Huddersfield’.
Huddersfield Unlimited, a business-led organisation working to promote economic prosperity for its businesses, has partnered with The University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield BID (Business Improvement District) and Kirklees Council in a joint effort to bring attention to town.
Showcasing Huddersfield will in part be done through the ‘Our Huddersfield’ banner featured in a new dedicated section on Huddersfield Unlimited’s website . This will include content curated by local experts focusing on lifestyle, business, education and culture. A supporting Instagram page will also launch soon.
Visitors to the page will be able to find articles and insider tips on new business investments in the town, property hot spots, educational achievements and research discoveries, as well as news on bars and restaurants, events and local news.
Sir John Harman, director of Huddersfield Unlimited, said: “We all know that Huddersfield has a lot to offer, but in true Yorkshire style, we don’t blow our own trumpet enough.
“While there are a lot of organisations doing their best to tell our story, that can sometimes give possible investors a less than clear impression of what Huddersfield is about. From the outset, Huddersfield Unlimited has wanted to see collaboration so that we all become more effective in promoting the town.”
Cllr Shabir Pandor, leader of Kirklees Council said: “These are exciting times for Huddersfield. The council is leading one of the biggest regeneration projects the town has ever seen and we’re restoring historic local buildings like the George Hotel back to their former glory.
“We will continue to work with Huddersfield Unlimited as we will with a range of other partners to improve our infrastructure, create opportunities for local people and deliver on our major ambitions for the town.”
Professor Bob Cryan, vice-chancellor of the University said: “The University is always proud and pleased to support initiatives to promote our town – and to help boost businesses here. We are delighted to be part of this partnership and look forward to celebrating present and future successes.”
Huddersfield BID manager, Sam Sharp, said: “Any decision made by individual groups, to come together in collaboration and promote our wonderful town of Huddersfield, can only be of great benefit.”
