Holmfirth Events (now Holmfirth.Info) was set-up by a local lady Kerry Sykes on the 6 September 2011 with a Facebook page that showcased local events and things to do, Kerry was approached by a local web developer who recognised the work she was putting in, and offered to develop a not for profit website, which was set-up shortly afterwards.

The website and Facebook page did extremely well, and developed into a small business for Kerry, who still runs the website today, alongside Rachel (admin) and Ben (Web developer).

The website has gone from strength to strength with  2023 seeing nearly 3 MILLION views, and the Facebook page is nearing 25,000 followers.

Kerry also volunteers as a Secretary for the Holmfirth Business Together Group and also volunteers on the Committee with he Hade Edge Residents Committee and Holmfirth Festival of Folk (alongside many others).
