Rutland Garden Village in Langham launches 'Small Business Summer' initiative
Rutland Garden Village is launching a new initiative to support independent business following the effect of the pandemic.
While the pandemic has had a devastating effect on the economy, over the course of the last year many new home-based businesses have been created in the area.
Throughout the months of July and August, Rutland Garden Village in Langham will be opening its site to independent businesses in the area who would like to showcase their products, work, art or hold a workshop.
Miranda Jones, brand ambassador for Rutland Garden Village, said: “We’ve been fortunate to be able to remain open during the latest lockdowns and as restrictions are eased and shops can open again, it’s imperative that local independent businesses are supported and that this becomes the new normal.
"With support, small businesses can become bigger businesses, can employ local people. This is how we can rebuild a resilient and sustainable local economy – this is a new normal that we can decide to create.
"At Rutland Garden Village we want to do what we can for local enterprise. We have a large site, great footfall, and a genuine desire to work collaboratively with other businesses, producers, artists, artisans and crafters.”
Rutland Garden Village also aims to hold a craft and artisan fair towards the end of the summer, should Covid-19 restrictions allow.
Anybody interested in getting involved with Small Business Summer can contact Miranda by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 07506 902504. There will be no charge to businesses wishing to take part.
