Rural Business Focus Podcast

What is a rural hub? – with Kate Speke-Adams

One of the challenges we face as rural businesses is how to connect with each other when we’re so geographically far apart. Herefordshire Rural Hub was founded in September 2004 to support economic, social and environmental improvements in the farming and rural business community in Herefordshire. From events and workshops to 1:1 business advice the hub works to ensure that local delivery and support is joined up. Today we hear more about the Hub’s work.

Ben is joined by Kate Speke-Adams who is Managing Director of Herefordshire Rural Hub. Kate was a voluntary Director of the Hub since 2018, and in January 2023 she was appointed as MD to lead on the development of the Hub, made possible by the Prince’s Countryside Fund Farm Support Group initiative.
