Spread the love far and wide this February

Spread the love far and wide this February

February is the month of love and Bassetlaw District Council, in partnership with Retford and Worksop business forums, will be celebrating and sharing all the wonderful things there are to shout about in our district.

Throughout February we want to spread the love far and wide by encouraging Bassetlaw businesses and organisations to share all the wonderful things they have in store to entice people back to the high street and beyond.

This could be offers, events and places to visit during February; for example, a fabulous place to take your sweetheart for a Valentine’s Day meal; a family friendly event during half-term or simply a business shouting about a special offer for customers to enjoy.

We especially want residents and visitors to share their positive messages and the great experiences they’ve received at an event or a venue, or if a business or organisation in Bassetlaw goes out of their way every time to ensure that their customers love to come back. There will even be some prizes on offer to individuals and businesses that are spreading the love locally.

There’ll be lots of ways to get involved on the Council’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Cllr Jo White, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Bassetlaw District Council, said:

“There is so much to love about our towns, villages, independent businesses and markets and we want to hear from everyone what they especially love about where we live.

“Residents, visitors, businesses and organisations are the beating hearts of our high streets, so we want you to share your stories, your images, your offers and your experiences and help to spread the love throughout the month of February.

“I encourage everyone to get involved and shout about why there’s so much to love about Bassetlaw to keep people shopping locally, socialising locally and spending locally in February and beyond.”

Let us know what you have planned on social media by using the hashtag #lovebassetlaw or tag @BassetlawDC into your post so that your messages can be shared. You can also email your offer, event details and an image to lovebassetlaw@bassetlaw.gov.uk with Love Bassetlaw as the subject line. We will be posting messages every day throughout February with a weekly roundup of places to visit, offers to take up and events that are happening every Friday.

If you are a resident or visitor and would like to explain why a business has won your heart, visit our Love Bassetlaw webpage and complete the form. Winners will be informed by 2 March.
