We would like to hear from you if your business is located within a North Warwickshire Market Town of either; Coleshill, Atherstone or Polesworth.
In light of the Covid -19 pandemic, and as talk of easing lockdown restrictions dominate the headlines, thoughts are naturally turning to the slow process of recovery.
Whilst we are mindful that the likely impact on the Borough will be significant, North Warwickshire Borough Council would like to check in with town centre partnerships, organisations and businesses to try and understand what the recovery period may look like, what challenges you will face, how you’re planning for this transition period and what support will be required.
We have therefore created a survey for businesses that are located within the town centres, which will help in a co-ordinated approach and understanding more about the recovery process. The survey, along with some other useful information, can be found here on our website – https://www.northwarks.gov.uk/info/20131/towns_and_villages/1530/town_centres_-_covid-19_recovery The survey will only take you a few minutes to complete, but will provide us with some extremely valuable information going forward. We would therefore encourage you to complete the form and provide us with as much information as possible. However, we do appreciate that you may be in the early stages of this thought process and may not have the answers to the questions asked, so please keep us updated as and when you can by contacting the Community Development Team – firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, starting in June we will be working with Warwickshire County Council to create short promotional videos encouraging people to ‘buy and eat local’. We will be looking for businesses to send in a short video, which can be filmed on their mobile phone camera. These clips will then be stitched together to create films for both the town and the county. We hope that these films will help to give our towns some added exposure and will reach audiences at both a local and county-wide level. We hope to send a short sample film to you in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on the email address above.
