A message from David A Kerfoot MBE DL

The speed the pandemic took hold on our daily lives was a massive shock. It was a big jolt to the system and I think our team at the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership responded with a real drive to get things done. Of crucial importance in their response, was the strong partnership working that has taken place with you, all of our partners. Working together, we have ensured the best possible regional response to the pandemic. On behalf of the LEP, I would like to extend to you all our genuine thanks for your support and collaboration through these incredibly challenging times. It shows the ‘can do’ attitude this part of the world is renowned for.
