Turriff Business Association has been awarded £10,000 from Scotlands Town Partnership.
The funding is for Marketing, PPE and a loyalty card scheme.
The money has come from The Towns and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) Resilience and Recovery Fund, financed by the Scottish Government and administered by Scotland’s Towns Partnership.
Phil Prentice, Chief Officer of Scotland’s Towns Partnership, said
Businesses in our town centres are showing remarkable resilience and innovation in how they are responding to the consequences of Covid-19 to best serve their customers and communities.
From rapidly accelerating their online offerings to moving quickly to ensure that safeguards are in place to ensure that staff can work safely and customers shop responsibly, their work is playing an important part in the nation’s recovery from the pandemic. The impact they are having should not be underestimated.
We are delighted to have been able to support projects across Aberdeenshire and pleased that the work will touch on so many towns as we encourage everyone to think local first – and safety first – to support the businesses and the people behind them who really are at the heart of the areas in which they live. Whether it be buying your groceries or enjoying a meal out, the support you give is critical as we work hard to secure a sustainable and successful future for Scotland’s town centres.
Projects in Banchory, Stonehaven, Ellon, Huntly, Ballater, Mintlaw and Aboyne are also benefiting from grants.
