LOVE Coast campaign

This campaign has commenced and is aimed at encouraging people who love the coast, to share their favourite images of the Yorkshire Coast.  All will be featured in our virtual gallery and with a current reach of 14.7k, we are encouraged by the immediate reaction.  All businesses that supply us with an image to be part of this campaign will be promoted and you can upload an image direct here.

Scarborough retailers

Since the launch of the Scarborough Gift Card, over £45,000 have been purchased and £15,000 redeemed in stores, with some having received in excess of £1,000 so far.  A promotion is due to commence via the Scarborough Gift Card Facebook page, where every 2 weeks, a nominated community hero will win £100.  We want all businesses to remain top of mind so that when people can return to the high street, you are positioned as a go-to venue to redeem the cards; if you need imagery/strap-lines to promote yourself as part of the scheme get in touch and let us know.

Business explore and buy guides:  All towns

We are looking to run a series of guides over the next 12 months promoting things to do and buy when restrictions end.  To be part of these guides all we require is a key product to promote and you can send these to us directly or here.  

East Riding Support Workshops

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has commissioned specialist consultants The Retail Group to provide free business growth workshops to town centre businesses in East Riding.

The workshops will provide practical ideas and suggestions about how you can adapt, evolve and improve your performance, both now and over the coming months to help you improve your resilience and to grow sales in these challenging times.

The Retail Group has delivered similar workshops in other parts of the country and the feedback from businesses has been completely positive about how it has helped them to trade and operate.

You can watch a 2 min summary showreel video here which demonstrates how the workshops work.

The remaining interactive workshops will take place:

Coastal Route
