NEW BUSINESS DIRECTORY WEBSITE LAUNCHED
Kirkham Town Council has created a new business directory to help and assist anybody who is self-isolating, vulnerable and being advised to stay at home. The directory allows businesses within a 6 mile radius to submit their business details, along with delivery information, services offered, payment methods and contact information. The site is now live and can be accessed via this button:
Businesses can start submitting their information to the directory straight away. As more and more businesses register for the service, the directory will grow and become a valuable resource for people who are unable to get to the shops. We’re very happy to have the support of Kirkham Business Group to help spread the word.
