What we’re about:

Calverley Business Network is a group of local businesses from Calverley and the surrounding areas. Our aim is to help each other to do more business and do more business locally!  We provide a warm and open environment for business people to meet, share ideas, leads and ultimately do business together!


Business owners, managers and professionals from all industries are welcome. Membership is free as are our monthly meetings. Members do not need to register; you can just turn up on the night.

Members can expect to gain benefits from the network in terms of new customer contacts, lead referrals, introduction to a range of local services and special offers. In addition to access to a wealth of business knowledge and expertise held by the members themselves.  Your business details will also be featured on the Calverley Business Network website.

Unlike other networks we have no formal requirements for members to bring any thing specific to the group, however we would ask that everyone embrace the helping spirit of the network and seek to share knowledge, ideas or leads where they can.


Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at the Thornhill Arms, 18 Towngate, Calverley between 7pm and 9pm. The emphasis is on a social event where members have the opportunity to meet and chat to each other.

The format is as follows:

7 – 8pm

  • Members meet up in the bar for a drink
  • Transfer to the function room upstairs
  • Quick introduction by a committee member and any Network news
  • New members will be given the opportunity to say a little about their business and what they do. If preferred new members can be introduced by a committee member
  • Existing members with news or offers which they would like to announce to the group have an opportunity to do so

8- 9pm

  • An opportunity for members to chat and share ideas
  • New members, please review the board for details of members you may wish to speak to and feel free to ask a committee member for an introduction

Competition statement

Calverley Business Network is an open group with no set membership criteria. It is quite possible that you will find a competitor business in the room. There is no policy to limit business types and we would ask members to embrace the open spirit of the network. If your competitor is here then all the more reason to come along too! – You will each have equal opportunity to represent yourself and your business.

    Hi Everyone. I own Poppies Domestic servcies, in Horsforth, and live in Farsley. I attended the monthly meeting for the first time on Tuesday. I will be coming regularly, and was very impressed by the range of business, and the enthusiasm of all present. I am happy to offer a discount of 10% on our normal prices for either regular or one off cleaning work, in the homes or businesses of other members. Looking forward to the next meeting with interest!
