LOCAL businesses will have the ear of key decision-makers at a special event organised by Keighley MP John Grogan. The Keighley Economic Forum will take place at Keighley College on Friday, June 21, and will be free to attend for people from new or existing businesses.

Keighley College principal Colin Booth said he was delighted to be hosting the economic seminar.
