We are fortunate to have a variety of businesses based in Central Bedfordshire and we champion local jobs for local people.”
These events are an example of how the Council are supporting one area of the Council’s Vision for Central Bedfordshire 2050, by positioning Central Bedfordshire as a great place for businesses to operate and offer employment opportunities to our towns and villages.
