For twelve days up to Christmas Bromsgrove traders will give to you – a prize a day on social media!

The Better Bromsgrove 12 Days campaign is being launched on Small Business Saturday (Dec 2) and will see local traders offering a prize, every other day until Christmas Eve.

For a chance of winning, look out for tweets from the Council with #BetterBromsgrove12, like and retweet them with the same hashtag. The winner will be announced the following day.

Bromsgrove District Councillor Karen May, whose portfolio covers Economic Development, said: “This campaign is a fitting opportunity to show our support for the small business in Bromsgrove.”

As part of the campaign, and to mark Small Business Saturday, Secretary of State and Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid is visiting the town High Street on Friday.

He is meeting town entrepreneur Lorita Cornish, of Decanter Spirit and Butcher’s Block, who is putting up Day 1’s prize – a hamper of drinks. Lorita first did business in the High Street more than two years ago when she opened Lorita’s Bakehouse.

Bromsgrove District Council’s Centres Manager Cheryl Welsh said: “I am absolutely blown away by the generosity of the traders from all across the District who have got behind this campaign.

“We have seen new businesses opening in Bromsgrove in the last year and I looking forward to welcoming even more in 2018!”
