Businesses in Ringwood affected by the A31 works will receive support from the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership event


Ringwood COMPANIES affected by the major A31 improvement project were invited to a day of support with free advice.

The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is hosting the drop-in event at the Greyfriars Community Center in Christchurch Road in the city from 9.45am to 5.00pm on Friday 10th June.

Experts and representative organizations will be on hand to provide information, offer practical advice and cover topics such as support structures, digital skills, finance and legal issues.

Participants can also have one-on-one discussions about the particular issues they face.

Paula Swain, Solent LEP Commercial Director and Small and Medium Business Ambassador, said: “Free expert advice will be available to cover any issues a local business may face due to buyers being unable to access it due to the Works on the A31.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from business support providers about their offerings and engage with them one-on-one on specific challenges.

“If you know of any other local business owners who have been affected by the traffic jams who would benefit from the assistance offered, please let them know about Business Assistance Day.”
