Scarborough is Europe’s most enterprising place

The north Yorkshire town of Scarborough has beaten Valencia in Spain, Helsinki, Finland’s capital and 350 other towns to be named the most enterprising place in Europe. Scarborough’s work to encourage people to start up and grow businesses and create jobs, including stamping out seasonal unemployment, diversifying to new industry sectors and attracting more than £200 million in private investment was recognised in a ceremony in Prague on Wednesday.
