New Covid recovery campaign launched for Bromsgrove and Birmingham businesses

Ross Crawford 11th Oct, 2020

A NEW campaign to support businesses that are safely open for business in the West Midlands has been launched.

#WMOpen4Biz is being run by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and is backed by the region’s trade and industry leaders, to encourage shoppers and residents to safely return to town and city centres.

Since June, businesses and offices have been opening their doors again, putting in measures to ensure they are ‘Covid-secure’ and that residents can shop and work safely.

The campaign has been kicked off by Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street who said:

“Coronavirus continues to have a big impact on our way of life and shows no sign of stopping, meaning we must learn to live safely with it.

“This is critical because whilst we face a public health crisis, we also face an economic one too.

“It is brilliant that so many local businesses, shops, restaurants, and a whole host of other venues have re-opened their doors despite the difficult times, but they need support to stay open.”

Any business looking for support can call 0121 274 3280 for advice.
