Rugby Borough Council hosts webinar to help businesses prepare for reopening
Rugby Borough Council is to host a free webinar for businesses, following the success of a similar webinar held before Christmas.
The seminar will provide Rugby-based business with an update on the Government’s roadmap to reopening, while also offering practical pointers on how they can prepare to reopen. There will be a particular focus on retail, hospitality and close contact services.
Businesses will also hear about grants and loans that are available for businesses that may need extra support.
Panellists at the event will include representatives from Rugby Borough Council’s commercial regulation, licensing, and community safety teams, Warwickshire Police, Rugby First and Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Hub, with others to be confirmed.
The webinar will be held at 2pm on Wednesday 24 March.
Cllr Jill Simpson-Vince, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for Growth and Investment, said: “With the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines and case rates now significantly lower, we can look forward to our borough’s businesses being able to reopen and start trading again.
“Nevertheless, we’re not going to be able to go back to ‘normal’ just yet.
This webinar will help businesses to know what they can expect from the Government’s roadmap and how they can best prepare to reopen safely and successfully.
“And, with some businesses not able to reopen fully until later in the spring, there will be important information about accessing cash grants and business loans.
“The feedback from the last meeting was very positive, and I hope that this webinar will prove equally useful.”
