High Street Guides by Maybe*are making headlines

Though we officially launched the Local Rewards High Street Guides only a few months ago, it's exciting to see its adoption and impact on businesses and  up and down the country. We're delighted to see the work we're doing with the Cotswold District Council, North Warwickshire, Torbay, and Bristol City Council making headlines and announcements by other new areas that we are launching in.

Recent coverage in Retail Times, Business Innovation Mag as well as in local press outlets, So Glos and Gloucester News, details the support we have in place in partnership with the Cotswold Council to provide the social media tools and training for independent businesses.

It great to see the impact this work has on businesses. The results for Stow-on-the-Wold's Law & Co speak for themselves.  The Local Rewards High Street Guides encourage all Cotswold's businesses to improve their digital activity. We are excited to be launching them with Bristol, Torbay and North Warwickshire shortly.
