#WEAREWOKING has launched a new campaign urging residents and visitors to Woking Town Centre and surrounding villages to shop, eat and enjoy everything local as more and more businesses begin to reopen.
The new ‘Love Local’ campaign, which includes posters for local retailers, hospitality businesses and attractions as part of a new online resource, encourages people to visit and enjoy Woking and its local neighbourhoods safely again while supporting the businesses in the area.
The campaign also encourages visitors to continue to follow current health guidance but also to pay attention to local measures put in place to help keep everyone safe.
Welcoming the campaign, Leader of Woking Borough Council, Councillor David Bittleston, said:
“Working with our business partners across the borough, we want everyone to continue to safely enjoy our shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions and to encourage everyone to support our local businesses, to protect jobs and drive our local economy forward. Ensuring Woking continues to remain a great place in which to live, visit, work and stay is an important priority for us all.
“As more of us are all staying and working closer to home, I’m urging all our communities to ‘Love Local’ and help breathe new life and vibrancy back into our town and village centres while staying safe. Our local businesses need your support more than ever.”
#WEAREWOKING has produced a directory of businesses reopening and a range of resources to help support the retail and hospitality sector bounce back safely and will be working to raise their profile and the people behind them.
“Woking Borough Council, working with our local business partners, have introduced a comprehensive range of comprehensive measures to ensure everyone’s safety and we encourage everyone to continue to follow the clear public health guidance available and to shop, eat, drink and dine safely now that more and more businesses return. Woking’s great and it’s great to be back,” Cllr Bittleston said.
“Love Local. Be Sensible. Be Mindful. Be Safe.”
