Burnley supports town centre businesses online

Burnley Business Improvement District (BID) has launched a virtual town centre bulletin board to help support businesses during the second lockdown and beyond.

The Facebook group - Discover Burnley Town Centre Online - is designed to become the go-to place for customers to see what services and initiatives businesses are running while nationwide restrictions are in place.

This could include details about deliveries, click-and-collect or parcels through the post from shops, retailers and traders as well as pubs and bars in the town centre.

Businesses will be able to post offers, news and updates in the group in order to let the people of Burnley know what they are doing to keep going during the lockdown.

Burnley BID is also continuing to work closely with their members to guide them through the relevant grants, funding and support available to them.

Andrew Dean, project manager, said: "We wanted to support our town centre businesses during this difficult time by giving them the platform to promote themselves whilst helping out their fellow businesses who need support now more than ever.

"It’s important that we shout about all of the great services they are providing by giving the public updates of their offerings which can be accessed all in one place.

"I would encourage members of the public in Burnley and the surrounding areas to join the page as our shops and businesses need your support in order to keep going throughout the coming months."
