Co-working

Promoting local businesses and enterprise

We would like to encourage local people to support local businesses and community enterprise, keeping more money in our local economy.  We are considering a number of different ways that this could be achieved including a local market, a brochure of local businesses, an online directory of local businesses and a loyalty scheme.  Please let us know if your business would be interested in taking part in one of these initiatives.

How can my business get involved?

Any developments in Three Parishes means Business will be updated on this website page, on our facebook page, and included in local village magazines.  Please let us know if you would like to be added to our Three Parishes means Business mailing list (post and email).  Please contact Bridget, Big Local Co-ordinator on 01691 656882 or by e-mail: b.laraway@qube-oca.org.uk if you would like to discuss your business needs.
