13/03/2020Corona VirusI just wanted to drop you all a line regarding the effect that the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) might be having on your business. As we all realise this is a very difficult and unprecedented time for businesses. We will continue to promote Bury St Edmunds, paying close attention of course to advice given by Public Health England https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-for-employees-employers-and-businesses in what is an ever evolving situation.

13/03/2020Angel Hill RoadworksHopefully by the end of today all the problems created in Tayfen Road in repairing a gas leak, will have ended and therefore the only major roadworks in town will be on Angel Hill. The contractors are 2/3rds of the way through the work and all has gone to plan so far. Hopefully all the work will be completed by the end of the month, so normality is only a fortnight away! The final phase of the work starts on Monday and should only take 2 weeks.

13/03/2020Mothers DayAccepting all I have written within the above paragraph we are looking to work with Bury St Edmunds & Beyond, who are creating a blog about Mothers Day offers, promotions & events. They and Our Bury St Edmunds will also be spreading the word on social media too so please send brief details of what you have planned including any offers and please feel free to share any accompanying images with me please. The more you make me aware of what you are doing the more we can feature and talk and write about your business.

06/03/2020Corona Virus – latest Government Advice for the publicObviously the situation regarding the Corona virus is an issue that is rapidly changing almost every hour so I appreciate it is very difficult to keep up to speed on all the developments so I thought providing you with a link to the Government website, where their advice is updated regularly and as appropriate, might be useful. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
