Huge turnout for Hinckley Business event

September 16, 2014 3:17 PM

Hinckley County Councillor Michael Mullaney welcomed the huge attendance at a recent business networking event in Hinckley as a sign of how positive things are going in the area.

Cllr Michael Mullaney attended the "Love Hinckley" business networking event held recently at Sketchley Grange. Michael Mullaney said "The event was packed with over 60 people there. The Love Hinckley group has been going for almost a year now and this is one of the biggest turnouts they have ever had for an event.

"It was fantastic to see so many enthusiastic business people from the Hinckley area keen to take their businesses, and the local area forward.

"There is lots of positive news about the economy in Hinckley and Bosworth. Over the last year unemployment has fallen by almost a half in Hinckley and Bosworth. We have new jobs coming to the local area at the Enterprise Zone at MIRA on the A5 near Hinckley and the DPD site at Sketchley Brook. We also have had one of the biggest increases in Apprenticeships in the Country helping young people get the skills they need to find work."
