Keeping connected in Clay Cross

Unlocking new ways to connect with businesses is key, as we move forward with our ambitious plans for Clay Cross.

It’s now just over a year since the town was awarded a massive £24.1m from the Government, as part of highly successful Town Fund bid to kick-start regeneration in the town.

A variety of projects will now be implemented over the next five years to boost the town centre and local area, and put Clay Cross on the map.

To make sure businesses are kept in the loop about our plans, and how they can contribute to them, we’ve created a brand new Clay Cross Business Ambassador role.

Taking up the voluntary position is Becky Hunter - a Clay Cross business owner and mum, who has a keen interest in what happens in her town.

Becky, Director of Riber Products Ltd, said: “From a business point of view, Clay Cross is the heart of our business. From a personal point of view, I have a young family as well and I want to make sure the new leisure centre is a place I want to take my young daughter and there are nice places for her to grow up.”

Becky is keen to find out what views and opinions businesses in Clay Cross and surrounding area have about the multi-million pound project and wants businesses to get in touch with any questions they might have.

If you are a business owner, you can contact her on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Becky will then take your views back to the council’s Clay Cross Town Board Communications group for discussion.

We’ll also be distributing newsletters throughout the year, to make sure businesses are kept up-to-speed with our plans.
