Welcome to WMB In The Towns...
Welcome from Rachel Baconnet, Warwickshire County Council town centres and tourism leader.
Hello and welcome to the December edition of Warwickshire Means Business: In the Towns.
As always, there is loads going on In The Towns - with a lot more more coming down the track. This month we feature a new support programme, starting in the New Year, which will give Independent retailers across Warwickshire a chance to get some top tips on how to attract more customers.
Also please read about the exciting plans of Shakespeare's England and the George Eliot Fellowship in the year ahead as they continue their great work to promote the region in the context of our two great writers. The Roman Mancetter project, meanwhile, is a great collective effort by organisations worting together to give prominence to an often unheralded corner of Warwickshire's amazing history.
I hope you enjoy reading about these initiatives - and much more - in Warwickshire Means Business: In the Towns.
What is the Warwickshire Towns Network?
The Warwickshire Towns Network (WTN) is a collaboration between practitioners and businesses who have a vested interest in the health of Warwickshire Town Centres.
Who do we work with?
Practitioners – these people and organisations are mainly focused on the town as a whole, helping to develop, enhance and attract people to the town.
Businesses – a mix of retail, professional service and leisure within town centres.
Community – are playing an increasingly important role in how their places are shaped.
