Normally at this time of year we would be looking forward to our AGM and a tasty breakfast on the first Wednesday of May but clearly the current restrictions make that impossible so we are postponing the meeting until September. We will be introducing two potential committee members to you and we are hoping for a great venue - so please put Wednesday 2 September at 8am in your diaries.
We also want to invite you to take part in an online business survey with the local tourism marketing organisations, The Suffolk Coast and Visit East of England, who need you to tell them how your business has been affected by Covid-19 through an online survey.
The survey will help them monitor the overall impact across the region of Covid-19 and the collected information will be passed on to relevant organisations including MPs, VisitBritain/VisitEngland, DCMS etc.
We have been a bit slow alerting you to this, if you can manage it before the deadline of this Thursday 23 April at 22:00 it would be much appreciated. This is the link.
East Suffolk Council are working with Archant and the East Anglian Daily Times on their recently launched 'Support Local' #Thereforyou campaign. This is designed to help communities and businesses get important messages out to customers. They are looking for good news stories of businesses that are offering vital help and assistance and other information related to the Coronavirus situation. If you have anything to share let us know and we'll pass it on.
Stay safe and stay strong,
Sally Ogden (Chair)
Ella Roberts (Vice Chair)
Gary Thompson (Treasurer)
Sarah Whitelock (Secretary)
