Membership Benefits

Connect | Influence | Learn | Socialise | Showcase | Save


We organise at least one networking event each month, always trying to find new and interesting venues.

This is your opportunity to develop relationships, hear from local policy makers, seek advice from other trades and professions, and – last but not least – showcase your business to prospective customers.


Hear directly from local policy makers about upcoming changes and opportunities that may affect your business. Government representatives often attend our networking events to update us on major projects and get instant feedback on planning proposals.

Make your voice heard by joining forces with your peers and create a better future for our local economy and community!


Broaden your expertise at our training events.

The business environment is changing all the time and there’s no better way to keep up than booking your FREE seat at our ‘Ask the Expert’ workshops. Grab handy tips from our experts, who will show you how to implement them yourself without breaking the bank! Past events include a briefing on GDPR and how to win business with local Google search.

If you want to share your expertise and present on a topic that would benefit our members, we would love to hear from you! Please contact our Business Manager Sue Llewellyn, who will be happy to give you more details.

Or if there is a particular topic you would like to learn about, let us know and we will do our best to organise an event featuring this topic.

Our Peer Learning Group sessions are another great way to solve business issues and gain expert knowledge. Bring your challenges to the table and together we will develop solutions and alternatives to benefit your business.


With nearly three quarters of our members’ businesses having less than 5 employees, and more and more local residents going freelance, joining the HHBA is a great way to feel less isolated and meet your peers in relaxed and informal settings for FREE.

Our summer and Christmas networking drinks are very popular, as we make the most of our beautiful countryside and local fare!


There are many ways to showcase your business when you join the HHBA:

• FREE entry on our members directory
• FREE articles in our monthly newsletter

SPONSOR our networking drinks and promote your business at a very competitive rate! As a sponsor, you will be given some airtime at the event to present your business and answer any questions from our members.

Interested? Then contact our Business Manager Sue Llewellyn, who will be happy to give you more details.

EDUCATE our members at our ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions.
