A website which plans to focus on encouraging greater trade and tourism in Hebden Bridge has been launched.

Hebdenbridge.org has been set up by the Hebden Bridge Business Forum after receiving funding from the The Great British High Street Awards back in December 2016.

The town was named Best Small Market Town and The People’s Choice Award winner. It was given £5,000 of prize money. Earlier this year the project was also given a £4,350 grant from the National Lottery.

A team of local professionals worked on the website, designing everything from the layout to the photography and more.

As well as planning the project, the Hebden Bridge Business Forum team have contributed some personal blog content for the website.

Member of the business forum and owner of Heart Gallery, Alison Bartram, said: “The positive message that Hebden Bridge is a truly unique and fantastic place to live and work is being promoted far and wide.

“The future is bright and the Hebdenbridge.org team are looking forward to working with more contributors to strengthen the businesses and communities of Hebden Bridge.”
