Broadland District Council’s new ‘Buy in Broadland’ discount voucher scheme was launched on Tuesday 7 March by councillors and local businesspeople at participating business, Lolly Rose in Spixworth.
A discount voucher booklet has been distributed to every household in Broadland. The booklet includes 96 great offers which can be used in Broadland’s shops, cafés, attractions and more.
Every business in Broadland was offered the opportunity to be included in the ‘Buy in Broadland’ booklet which is free to both businesses and residents and the council has been pleased with the response.
Cllr Stuart Clancy, portfolio holder for Economic Developnment at the council said:
“There are so many fantastic places to eat, shop and enjoy in Broadland and the council would like to let the whole area know about them. A main ambition of Broadland District Council is to achieve economic success in the district. With the new ‘Buy in Broadland’ booklet, residents will be able to discover new places, remember old favourites and contribute to achieving this ambition.”
The launch saw Cllr Stuart Clancy and Cllr Andrew Proctor, Leader of Broadland District Council, meet with participating businesspeople: Barbara Greasley of Norfolk Broads Direct, Grant Pointer of Norfolk Premier Golf and Pirates Island Adventure Golf, Victoria Lawrence of Agent Shave, Kate Tritton of Eastern Financial Consultants, Rosemary Black of Reepham Country Market, Grizelda Tyler of Aylsham Country Market and Lauren Fenn of Lolly Rose.
Lauren Fenn, owner of Lolly Rose in Spixworth said:
“Over the past two years my business has gone from strength to strength mainly with the support of the local community. At Lolly Rose the majority of products are sourced locally and handmade. Shopping locally supports not only the shops you are buying from but many other local businesses."
Grant Pointer of Norwich Premier Golf in Blofield said:
"The 'Buy in Broadland' scheme is great promotion for local businesses and it is a really good way of raising awareness of what the district has to offer."
Victoria Lawrence of Agent Shave said:
"As a new start up business, this is a fantastic opportunity to be used and recognised in our local community."
Every household in Broadland will be receiving a free ‘Buy in Broadland’ discount voucher booklet by post.
