illumanize were recommended to us through a number of his current clients and I have to say it is one of the most fortuitous introductions I have every had. Pete knew we had a tight budget and we were desperate to create an on-line presence quickly. He not only created a website that out-shone all other club websites but got us to the top of the page on Google for “harrogate clubs”. (This can’t be easy with the distinctly un-unique name of, The Harrogate Club!) Thanks to the website illumanize have created, (and the online application system) our membership has increased more in the past two years then ever before in our 158 year history. We can now book events online, access reciprocal clubs, catch up on the current club news and much more. It would not be an overstatement to say that without Pete Wilkins and illumanize, The Harrogate Club might have been looking at very bleak future or none at all. Instead we are in the midst of our most successful financial year ever.
The Harrogate Club is a grand old building at 36 Victoria Avenue built in 1886 near the junction with Queen Parade. Something of a Harrogate institution and one of its best kept secrets, it has been the centre of Harrogate’s club life for business and professionals since 1857.
