About the Group

First Monday is a monthly networking event, held in Northallerton on the first Monday of each month from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. (Occasional exceptions occur when the day is not feasible for some reason e.g. January 2014).

The First Monday group was set up in November 2013 by Gill Carnell (Secrets of Software) & Colin Grimston (Enterprise North Yorkshire) to bring local small and medium sized businesses together for an informal networking evening once a month for those with business in the Hambleton area (based in Hambleton or with customers in the area). Both Colin and Gill have attended many networking groups and both agreed there was a need for something much less formal, and that it would complement the traditional formats currently available.

No charge is made for attending the meetings as we are supported by our hosts in providing the venue free of charge, and by our monthly sponsors who cover the costs of refreshments.

We hope we have your support in continuing the initial success of the group and that you will encourage colleagues and acquaintances to be involved.

Prize Draw
We plan to also have a free prize draw each month so if your business would like to offer a prize this would be most welcome.

We continue to seek sponsors for future meetings, and in return you will have the sole opportunity to:

  1. • display banners, leaflets, posters and business cards around the room

  2. • have your logo displayed on the Eventbrite registration, and on our website
    • say a few words about your business on the evening.

If you’d like to discuss the idea of sponsoring a future meeting please contact Gill or Colin.

Volunteer organisers
Organisers provide their time on a voluntary basis and we are seeking additional assistance for areas such as planning, and ‘meet and greet’. If you are interested please email Gill or Colin.
