Helmsley is the only market town in the North York Moors National Park. It attracts tourists and local visitors with a warm Yorkshire welcome and is a beautiful historic town. For a town with 1400 residents, we have more than 100 small businesses and a diverse cultural and leisure offering. However, in the current climate, we wanted to ensure Helmsley continued to thrive. So in 2012 Helmsley in Business was formed. We have run successful events, had over 300 pieces of national and international PR coverage, collaborated on innovative marketing projects like our new brochure and our promotional video, and have worked with partners like the Federation of Small Businesses, the Local Enterprise Partnership and the North York Moors National Park as well as local councils, raised money for charity, formed business networks between businesses and the organisation has grown to over 50 members.

It doesn’t stop here – we have plans in place for our new website further, international marketing, new events and our member businesses are gaining many accolades in awards across all sectors, we are welcoming new businesses to town, and new Helmsley fans too. There is a buzz around town, our small businesses think big, and our community is strong and future-proof because we believe in working together. Please help us by voting for Helmsley when the competition opens on September 1st and by interacting on social media via the hashtag #GBHighSt about Helmsley – photos, testimonials, videos and your comments are welcomed via our Facebook page and Twitter account.
