Join Us

Are you eligible?

The 4HTA is open to any and all businesses based in the SK4 post code area. Our members include well known shop fronts in the Heatons, offices and B2B companies as well as sole traders working from home.

It doesn’t matter if you are a homeworker, a one-man-band, a shopkeeper or part of a national chain; if your business is based in SK4, you are welcome to join the 4HTA. Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from businesses based outside the Heatons.

How we operate

We meet regularly (and quite informally!) throughout the year. But if you can’t make the meetings, don’t worry, you can still join! We’ll send out regular updates so you know what’s happening, and everyone gets a chance to have a say. We also hold smaller meetup sessions for specific groups, such as non-shop-front businesses.

We help promote local businesses to the community and encourage members to trade with each other. We lobby the council on issues that matter to all of us. By simply joining us, you are helping the local business community have a stronger voice in all our activities. The more members we have, the stronger our voice.
