Well what a year it has been since we launched “Your Town Needs You” last year. If you can remember, I asked businesses to display the flag of St Edmund of Suffolk and what an brilliant response we had.
We Love Bury St Edmunds has once again been working alongside Our Bury St Edmunds to wow the the town again. We have a head start this year, as many businesses from last year still have their flags.
This year we have created a GDPR email client to ensure we are compliant with the new regulations, and we have been asking local businesses to sign up to this. We will be keeping them informed about when to put the flags up, when to tweet or post, and where to do it.
If you have missed this opportunity, there is still time, just click this link, but you must be a business in Bury St Edmunds to be able to take part. https://welovebse.rootytoot.com/stedmundsday/
We have also been incredibly fortunate again this year by having the Town Council come on board and support this, and I am told, that all present agreed! I guess they liked what they saw last year.
We were mentioned in the local newspapers and also on BBC Radio Suffolk. I have some amazing news for Mark Murphy for when he calls this year!
Some of the businesses who are already signed up are Guildhall Dental, Surf Snow Style, Gross & Co, By Choice Estate Agents, David’s Hairdressers, Greene King, Buy The Light, Burnett Barker, April Homes, Just Mortgages, The Hunter Gallery, BLS English, Abbey Dental Practice, Auntie Pams Sweet Shop, 3 Cats Vintage, Crew Clothing, Jewellery By Tony Strowger, Premier Travel, Jacobs Allen, Martin & Co… and that’s just the first page!!!
Some of the businesses have already told me they will be giving discounts, and this will be communicated to you in due course.
There will ALSO be a We Love Bury St Edmunds Facebook Group Challenge… but you just have to sit tight and wait to hear about that too.
