Aim of the Carnforth Business Network
To further Carnforth as a prosperous and vibrant location to live, visit and do business. It is local businesses that are the key to a thriving town and the CCarnforth Business Network exists to support them.
In Carnforth we are fortunate. Our town is readily accessible by road and rail. In addition we live in a beautiful location being close to the Lake District and in the heart of Morecambe Bay. Further, we have a flourishing network of organisations supporting and promoting our town.
We maintain close ties with local government at all levels. This enables our members to have a voice with these bodies and to ensure the interests of local businesses are part of policy making. We aim to ensure this situation is enhanced in the future.
Carnforth has relatively little crime. It is our belief that strong ties between local businesses and the police via the Chamber of Trade contribute to maintaining this happy state of affairs.
Our neighbour, the City of Lancaster, is naturally very important to our town. We ensure there is a good flow of information and views between us by being affiliated to the city’s Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber continues to promote Carnforth and make it a more colourful place by organising the Christmas trees, Easter eggs and hanging baskets on local shops. It also organises and runs the Christmas lights switch on. We also run an arts event in summer. The aim of these activities is not only to attract business to the town but also to provide events for local people and visitors to enjoy.
