Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival
Moving in to it's fourth year, the Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival continues to grow and be the pinnacle of the annual events in Yorkshire. With hundreds of stalls and food and drink locations, and the main attraction of celebrity guest chefs for live demonstrations, Q&A sessions and photo opportunities. 2019 saw The Hairy Bikers, Mary Berry, Lisa Faulkner and many more turn out to entertain the, over, 15,000 people in attendance.
Bronte Vintage Gathering
Once again, we supported the amazing Bronte Vintage Gathering near Cullingworth, West Yorkshire. The Bronte Vintage Gathering has been running for over 21 years and supports the fantastic work that is done by the Sue Ryder Care and Manonlands Hospice, based in Oxenhope.
The weekend event ran over the weekend of the 11th and 12th May offering great family entertainment, live entertainment and a variety of food that will keep you coming back year after year.
As well as our display area, we supported the event by loaning vehicles that were used by the organisers to help during the run up to the event and throughout it too.
The 19 reg has arrived and looks great on all the new Fords ready to go out!
After a few years away, we re-introduced the Skipton Ford 'Good News' Event which has been, and continues to be so heading in to April. The 'Good News' event is to show our existing, loyal customers an extra level of care in return for their support. So much emphasis is put on saving 'a few pounds here, and a few pounds there' when buying a car, and with all the finance options, manufacturer deposits, after care products and service plans, it can quickly become confusing. With the 'Good News' event, it's not all about how much you can save - with the event aimed purely at existing customers - it's also about giving you the reassurance and customer service you would expect from a family owned business.
We aim to offer the highest level of service throughout our business - whether you are purchasing a vehicle, bringing it in for a service or are one of the many customers of our Parts department.
Over the course of the past 2 and a half months, we have been busy making improvements to the showroom to offer a better experience to our customers. This work has involved; increasing the size of the Ford showroom to include the full range of Ford models, add the Transit Centre to the showroom so we can display the range of commercial vehicles, created a boutique showroom for our other manufacturer - which is unique and the first in the country.
More to come on this shortly!
January saw the return of our January Sale event that offers huge savings off of our Pre-Loved, New and Pre-Registered vehicles.
At an important time in the motor industry, with the busiest period on the horizon, our aim was to give an opportunity to securetheir new car at the earliest opportunity. With customers saving on average £2,873 on the list price of all vehicles sold in January, it turns in to one of the best times of the year to purchase a vehicle from Skipton Ford.

This year, we are continuing our tradition of giving you a choice of gifts on us when you purchase any new or used vehicle (car or commercial vehicle) throughout December!
It is as simple as that, with a couple of Terms and Conditions but check out the offer page on the link below or visit the store and pick your gift!
The New Ford Edge
The New Edge has been announced and even just looking at the outside, it is a thing of beauty! Get inside and it is a significant step up from its predecessor. Been at the top of the Ford range, refinement has been taken seriously and a host of advanced technologies that exist solely to enhance your driving experience. State-of-the-art systems include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go and Lane Centring. These systems work together seamlessly, on your behalf, enabling you to enjoy every journey and concentrate on the more important things in life.
As expected, Ford have developed a new 4 cylinder EcoBlue engine which falls in line with the new Euro6 economic standards, but still delivers a seamless drive and power throughout the range - especially when paired with the new 8-speed automatic transmission.

Black Friday Event
At the centre of everything we do is our customers, and for this Black Friday event, we ran a 0% Interest event on Used Cars. This gave you guys a huge saving on the monthly price of a new car when capitalising on this finance option to purchase the vehicle.
We saw this get a lot of interest across social media, our website and our forecourt as over the week and we would like to thank everyone who came in or contacted us about the offer and we hope that everyone who made the most of the offer enjoy their new vehicle!
Get your Brand New 68 Plate Ford
It's that time of the year when everyone rushes to buy their new car to be the first person on their street to own the new registration that is out. However, there are a lot of options available in the market to try and tempt you to buy from them. With all these options, making sure you get the best option to suit your needs and budget may not always be that clear - which is why at Skipton Ford, for over 25 years, we have always prioritised customer service.
Been a family run business, we want to make sure that you and your family are looked after like we would expect.
The Black Diamond Event
We would like to thank everyone that came to Skipton Ford's Black Diamond Event and took advantage of the huge savings!
We enjoyed a very successful event with a lot of interest shown from the appointments that were made and passing traffic interested in what was behind the curtains! There were a few fun activities throughout the 4 days with prizes everyday for the lucky/most determined person who found the black diamond that was hidden each day - one person who spend well over an hour looking for it after purchasing a brand new Ford.
The main attraction to the event was for you to save £'000's off of the list price of a brand new 68 plate car. And, we are pleased to say that we delivered with an average of £2,100 saving off of each car.
