Gloucestershire Day backing local business

Today is Gloucestershire Day - the start of a month-long campaign that backs local business as they continue on their road to recovery.

Tuesday 21st September marks the county's second Gloucestershire Day and this year Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) will be showing its support for local business and showcasing everything that makes the county a great place to live, work and visit.

The past 12 months have been a challenging time for us all, but not least for local businesses and their staff, who have had to adapt and face head-on the challenges the pandemic has brought.

From restaurants, pubs and clubs; theatres and arts; small start-ups and large employers; the council says it wants to celebrate them all.

GCC will also be celebrating and highlighting the various county council funds put in place to help with local recovery post pandemic including: The Build Back Better Fund and Build Back Better for Market Towns.

There are various ways to get involved:

  • Gloucestershire is the Home Of...many amazing destinations and to celebrate the best of our county, local partners Visit Gloucestershire will be showcasing 30 of its best for 30 days. Follow their Instagram @visitglosuk and Facebook @discovergloucestershire to find out more, then share with your online community to remind people just how great Gloucestershire is
  • Give a shout out for a local business on social media using the hashtag #GlosDay. It could be your own business or a great business you work for; a fantastic small company or hidden gem; your favourite place to visit for a day out or best place to eat
  • Let people know about those businesses that have changed direction as a result of the pandemic and are continuing to go from strength to strength
  • Change your Facebook and Twitter cover image in support of Gloucestershire Day and our local business community available on our Flickr account

Punchline says: "We are all in this together - support your community, support your local retailers and suppliers and we will bounce back stronger together."
