The company ran into problems through its involvement in a major construction project to create a new wedding venue at Wharefedale Grange near Harewood Bridge.

A dispute arose which led to the contract being terminated, resulting in significant cashflow problems for Haresign Limited and the company being placed into administration. It has ceased trading with the loss of 11 jobs and it also used the services of a number of subcontractors.

The joint administrators are currently reviewing the issues around the dispute in order to ensure the best outcome for the company’s creditors.
