Based in bournville Coming soon...
Bournville has always been known for its community spirit, and through the coronavirus pandemic we have seen that shine through.
“Based in Bournville” is our new online directory for businesses which are based locally, here in Bournville, made to help support the community.
Independent and small businesses have taken a huge hit this year and we want to be able to give back to the community by doing what we do best, signposting, so with this in mind “Based In Bournville” will be running free of charge and be managed and run by Bournville Village Council volunteers in their free time.
This part of our website will enable you to find out about people running their business from our lovely little village in order to to support them not only through purchases but by simply being able to follow their presence online and keep up to date with what their doing easily, not just during christmas but throughout the year.
We have been planning this for a number of months now and have been combing through websites and social media to find all of the businesses both big and small that operate within the boundaries we have set.
We’re hoping to have the directory up and running within the next week or two so everyone can get their christmas shopping done locally.
Once the directory has gone live we will be accepting suggestions for businesses which are within the boundaries that we may have missed so they can be added if they’re not already listed, hopefully we won’t have missed too many people though.
We look forward to showing you just how many amazing businesses there are here (and there are a lot more than we initially thought there were)!
If the online directory works well and we have the available funds then we may also look at publishing a physical directory at a later date so that it is more accessible to residents who may not use the internet.
