We launched a new business website for Thirsk in April this year, developed in conjunction with Thirsk Regeneration Initiative (TRI) and Hambleton District Council. It’s designed to promote businesses in the area, and also to encourage businesses to start-up, or to re-locate to Thirsk.
Phase 1 of the development went very smoothly, and we moved onto Phase 2. This next phase of the development includes a Business Directory, which is designed to encourage businesses and residents to shop locally, and to use local services.
The Business Directory is now live at http://www.thirskbusiness.com/business-directory and we have already begun adding businesses to the Directory. Early adopters include SuperSkills Construction Training, Askham Tax and Accountancy Services and CK Services of course.
We are now actively seeking further Thirsk-based businesses to join the Directory and make it a really useful resource for Thirsk. A listing costs just £30 per year (£2.50 per month), and the proceeds will be used to support community projects in Thirsk, through the TRI.
Here’s an example of how it works:
- Your potential customer searches for ‘florist’
- ThirskBusiness.com provides them with a list of all Thirsk-based florists
- The florist’s name, contact details, logo and website appear, making it easy for
the customer to make contact, however they wish!
This is how the listing could look:
You can advertise your business on ThirskBusiness.com for just £30 per year

ThirskBusiness.com is a not-for-profit website run by the Thirsk Regeneration Initiative.
Any proceeds from the website and the Business Listings will be used to support
community projects in Thirsk.
