Croft Myl Tour

Join us for a tour around the newly renovated office rental area of Croft Myl.

This Valentine’s day we would love for you and your partner to join us at WAM to see our brand new premises and have a tour around Croft Myl.
We will begin the evening in the WAM office for Prosecco tasting, canapes and maybe some Valentine’s surprises.
Vicky Nolan of Croft Myl will be joined by Author Jean Illingworth who will talk about the fascinating history of the Myl and amazing transformation that has taken place over the past decades.
Finally it’s back to the WAM office where we can all mingle, chat, eat and drink until you are ready to head off for your evening Valentine’s plans.
We can’t wait to see you!

About Croft Myl

We believe it was originally used by tailor’s apprentice Lew Harris, who returned to England from the USA in 1919 and set up a small clothing manufacturing business in London which began trading under the name “L. Harris (Harella) Limited”. This operation moved to Halifax in the 1940s and took up residence at Croft Myl.

It was a very successful business – the wider textile industry regarded it as one of the most enterprising firms in a highly competitive field, and Lew Harris himself was the one who initiated the trend for a wider range of sizes for women’s garments.

But change is inevitable, and with the demise of Harella, Croft Myl has seen incarnations as the home of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, and more recently following a £1M refurbishment as individual business units.

“A brand new approach to business space right in the heart of Halifax. With planned facilities including meeting rooms, conference rooms and calm open spaces. Croft Myl is an ideal business location.

From virtual office space to a breathtaking penthouse suite with panoramic views that have views over the rooftops of Halifax, we’ve got it all – whatever you’re looking for, we can create the perfect space for you and your business”

Welcome to Our New Look…

Welcome to the new look Business for Calderdale website.

We thought it was about time we freshened up our image, and made our website more user friendly.
We’ve taken on board all your comments and feedback and incorporated this into a new site that works for you; the members.

The committee hopes that all the members will find the new B4C website more up to date and user friendly, in particular providing the opportunity for members to access and utilise the site to promote their businesses.

The site still has the same desirable characteristics it had before, such as; being able to find out about and book events online, as well as a list of the members of the group and how to contact them, and you can still arrange your membership payment online.

The new site allows members the opportunity to;

– Submit membership forms online
– Utilise the new members’ Noticeboard
– Access the Resource area
– Create your own resources and blogs to add to the site
– Keep in contact via the various Social Media platforms

We hope that all members will use the site regularly, not only to promote their business and make other members aware of news and facts about their businesses, but in terms of resources and through constant interaction via the blogs and Social Media platforms.

The noticeboard is a new feature that will allow members to discuss different topics and introduce new members, if you wish to provide some useful insight into the area of business you operate in, feel free to send us your resources in a word document, and we can add it to the site for other members to use.

The Committee see a vibrant and interactive website as an important feature of the membership at B4C and to help the organisation grow and prosper.

We’ve also had a new brand image created for the Business for Calderdale network, thanks to Judith at Wright Angle Marketing (WAM), which generated the starting point for our new website. The new site has been built and developed by Nigel and his team at The Marketing Lab, so a big thanks to them too… we hope you like it.

As part of the re-brand, we are pleased to be able to confirm that membership rates will continue at the same rate over a twelve month period. But memberships will now be renewed on the anniversary of the date each member joined, rather than en masse every September; we hope this makes the process much simpler for everyone.
