Wednesday was as usual a busy night, but we have decided on looking at the options for local professionally recognised, registered and acknowledge businesses, Cafes, Restaurants. This has been on our get involved page for sometime, but with the weather getting chillier it seemed the ideal time to implement it fully.
We were very lucky to be joined by both Aberdeen Inspired, the multi-award winning Business Improvement District (BID) for Aberdeen, now representing over 900 city centre businesses and the amazing Angie. Plus we had Sarah, from Sarah's Soups & Sweets with incredible food, which was devoured by all attending, all sealed & Sterile as is our policy. This is a great way to not only #supportlocal and help promote local places, which have regrettably suffered heavily with debts, or indeed many closures, but to also introduce and advertise positive local improvement team Aberdeen Inspired, representing over 900 city centre businesses. #bethechange #covid19 #frontlineemergencycare
