COMPANY bosses are getting ready for the fifth Leigh Business Expo this summer.

Nichola Howard, who is from Leigh and works at Launch Events NW, is hosting the annual expo which will be held at Leigh Sports Village on Friday, July 6 from 9am to 3pm.

The free event gives more than 50 entrepreneurs and business in the area the chance to showcase their work and develop contacts.

Nichola said: “I am delighted to be taking the lead on the event on its fifth birthday.

“The expo is a way of showing how ambitious and talented the town’s business people are, and how working together can make the area thrive and secure future employment for our young people.”

“Good business is all about relationships and we cannot wait to share contacts, resources and the genuine support of each other so Leigh can grow together.”
