The Menston Business Association is a group formed of businesses  (32 as at 10 April 2016) based in the village of Menston. Its aims include mutual support and promoting support of local businesses to the residents of the village. The name ‘Menston Business Association‘, a logo, and the promotional strap line ‘The best village in Yorkshire‘ were adopted by the group at a meeting on 14 May 2014. A membership fee of just £1/week was agreed, payable for a year in advance.

The logo is based on the traditional signpost seen when entering the village from the A65.

    • Hi Eddie. Thanks for the question. Do you mean the Menston News, the newsletter of the Menston Community Association? If so, contact (Dave and Alison) who put it together. If you mean this website, if you are a Menston-based business just send address and phone details, plus a few words describing exactly what the business does, and it will go into the business listings (we only list Menston-based businesses as this website is exclusively about Menston). If there’s anything new or special then it may be included in a post (eg see the Tickled Teapot teashop in a recent post); just send details to
