First and foremost, I hope that you and yours are all managing to stay healthy and well. We know that the additional lock down measures announced by the Prime Minister last night will have impacted further on people and businesses already struggling. Please keep in contact and let us know if you have any questions about the Government support that has been announced and how to access it?
We have updated our advice pages here,
which also includes a link to the dedicated business support service for Lancashire businesses, #AskForHelp.
It also remains important that we highlight the impact on Lancashire's businesses with Government so that we can continue to argue for more tailored support. VisitBritain has modified and reopened their tracker survey
, they will be conducting it regularly to monitor the impact on all aspects of the UK tourism industry. The results will provide impact data to brief Ministers, the Government and COBR to help support the industry through these challenging times. Please complete the survey if you can, it will close at 17.00 on Monday 30 March
We have been really inspired by the innovative ways that our partners have been adapting their business models. Please do let us know if you have a virtual tour of your attraction, a fact find quiz or anything else which we can help you promote to keep your business in the minds of consumers.
We don't want to bombard you but we do want to keep you as up to date as possible, and so we will be sending these communications regularly, and you can of course also follow us on social media.
All our thoughts and best wishes are with you and your families. Look after each other, stay safe, stay strong and keep in touch.
