The coronavirus pandemic has shown us the resilience of local businesses, and also reminded us how much we miss them.
At InYourArea and EssexLive, we want our members and readers to show their support for all the non-essential businesses that have been forced to close as a result of the lockdown restrictions over the last 12-months.
Many of us are desperate to get back to some sort of normality, and from June 21, it is hoped all restrictions will be lifted and many of our favourite pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops will be back in business.
To give businesses a helping hand in getting back on the front foot after lockdown, we are giving away a total of £1 million worth of business memberships.
But, to make that happen, we need business owners to take part in our #BackForGood campaign.
Our #BackForGood search tool gives your business even more exposure by appearing to local people on both InYourArea and EssexLive.
It’s free to list your business and the first 10,101 submissions will receive a free Business Membership on InYourArea – worth £99 per year.
