Rossendale Means Business - The Whitaker Gallery Rossendale

Woodcocks, Haworth and Nuttall (WHN) is backing a new local authority-led business exhibition designed to celebrate businesses in Rossendale and support local economic growth.

Rossendale Means Business (RMB) is designed to showcase businesses from the borough while giving them the opportunity to meet new contacts, gain inspiration and expert advice and also learn more about the council’s investment plans within Rossendale.

The event, which will take place on place Tuesday, June 11, at The Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery in Rawtenstall (pictured above), will also promote Rossendale’s heritage, food and creative talent. It is being organised by Rossendale Borough Council and digital marketing agency GrowTraffic.

Legal professionals from WHN’s team will be on hand at the event including director and debt recovery specialist Sara Beaumont, director and specialist residential conveyancing solicitor Jennifer Prysiaznyj, commercial property specialists director Daniel Long and associate solicitor Katie Hall along with corporate and commercial specialist Justine Harris Hughes.

They will be available to talk to business leaders about legal queries and discuss the legal services WHN provides. Members of WHN’s family team will also be on hand to cover legal queries relating to managing family businesses, succession planning and related family matters.

Sara Beaumont will also give an expert legal talk on maintaining healthy business finances and the role of credit control and debt recovery in building a strong business.

Michael Shroot, CEO, WHN said: “WHN has a long history of advising businesses in Rossendale. We have three offices in the borough – in Rawtenstall, Haslingden and Bacup – and we therefore understand the local economy and the unique opportunities and challenges for Rossendale companies.

“As an organisation, we are committed to supporting and helping to develop the communities in which we operate, so sponsoring this inaugural event was a natural step.

“We’re looking forward to working with Rossendale Borough Council, GrowTraffic and all other associated businesses and partners to make Rossendale Means Business a success and ensure this becomes a permanent fixture in the local business calendar.”
