Three Parishes Means Business

Three Parishes means Business is a FREE support package for businesses and community enterprises in Weston Rhyn, St Martins and Gobowen.

Suitable for businesses at all stages in their development cycle, from the germ of an idea to businesses that have been established for many years, Three Parishes means Business aims to help local businesses access the support that they need to grow and thrive.

Be a Better Fish

To help residents affected by job loss or job insecurity, we have teamed up once again with Paul Newman from Be a better fish and JC’s Careers Services to help those struggling to find work. In particular, help is at hand if you:

  • have recently left full-time education and are struggling to get on the career ladder,
  • are currently furloughed but worried about your long-term job security
  • Or have, unfortunately, already faced redundancy and need to find new ways to earn an income.

If finding work is currently a problem for you, then please do get in touch; we are here to help!

If anyone would like to know more about the service available, then please contact the Be a better fish Club via or call Paul directly on 07534 975 440.

Small grants and loans

Although our funding is reducing as we come to the end of the Three Parish Big Local we do still have some funding available and welcome applications for grants and loans up to £500 for small businesses that need a cash injection to take the next steps or for new businesses to help get off the ground.

In the first instance we put you in contact with Paul Newman, he will then get in touch with you and arrange to have a chat about what your needs are and work with you moving forward.
