Brandon Lewis MP launches campaign to support local businesses

I have, today, launched the Yarmouth Greats campaign to support local businesses.

The campaign invites local people to nominate their favourite local business, in any of the following three categories:

1. High Street Shop
2. Pub or Restaurant
3. Tourist Attraction

Residents who nominate a business will be entered into a prize draw for one of the five monthly prizes – an annual Splurge Card – provided by campaign partners Splurge Media.

Nominated businesses will receive a Yarmouth Greats certificate, in recognition of their popularity with local people. They will also be free to use the Yarmouth Greats logo on promotional material to further promote their position as community favourites.

The competition closes on 30th September. The top five businesses in each category will be invited to an award ceremony to congratulate the winner in each category. Winners will receive a free place in the 2015/16 edition of the Splurge Card brochure.

We have some fantastic businesses in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and the villages. From high street shops offering an exciting range of goods and services, to pubs and restaurants serving high quality food and drink to world famous tourist attractions. Yarmouth Greats is an opportunity for local people to say thank you to these businesses and give them a further chance to promote themselves to new customers. I hope that Great Yarmouth residents will get behind this campaign and show the UK what makes Yarmouth Great!
