TRADERS turned out in force to a meeting called by Pickering in Business to discuss ways of boosting the town’s economy.
Organiser Coun William Oxley said: “There was huge groundswell by the businesses that we need to come together to promote Pickering as a tourist centre and an ideal shopping area.”
It is planned to build up a directory of all businesses in the town, together with Pickering’s attractions and services and businesses will be able to feature their own enterprises, said Coun Oxley.
Business leaders are to explore ideas for new events and promotions to attract more people to the market town. “There was certainly a lot of enthusiasm to take Pickering forward, it was a very positive meeting,” he said.
Another meeting is planned in the next few weeks, he added.
