Nub News is keen to help all the businesses in our patch recover from the pandemic-related lockdown and prosper.

We want you to join our free listings ’Local List’ to help promote your business and if you have a good story to tell, then share it with us and your customers, and future customers.

Are you doing well? Are you opening an outlet? Relocating to new premises? Have you won a big export order? Are you launching something innovative and usual? Are you expanding, taking on more people? Or, are you starting afresh, doing something new?

Here are three ways Nub News can help you:

1- ‘Local List’. Go to the top of our homepage and look at where it says ‘Local List’. Click there and add your details. There, you can join the other businesses that have already submitted their details. The listing doesn’t cost you anything, so what have you got to lose?

2- Have you got a good story to tell? Nub News is keen to run positive stories about local businesses. We’ve ran quite a few already in Lincolnshire/Rutland, but the more the merrier.

For example, Tell us a bit about yourselves and your businesses. How were you impacted by the lockdown and pandemic? What challenges did you face? How did you respond? Have you opened already? Or are you still planning to re-open? What changes have you made or are making?
How do you think your business/industry will differ in future to the pre-lockdown era? Anything else you might want to tell us? Any messages to get across? Anything to make the story interesting, as well as help boost your business.

Please email your story to [email protected] Don’t forget to include a photo or two, ideally featuring people, and include a phone number in case we need more details.

3- Calling all publicans! Some of our most popular and best-read stories, both locally and around the country, have been about pubs. You are at the heart of our communities.

Tell us a bit about you and your pub. What did it specialise in before lockdown. What impact did lockdown have on your business? How did you respond and why? (take-aways, a shop’, etc, any community-minded activities?) What preparations are you doing for your re-opening? How do you feel about the government’s guidelines? Will you make July 4? What challenges will you face and how are you trying to overcome them. How might your business differ after lockdown compared to before. And again, if there is anything else you want to add, don’t forget to tell us.

Please email your story to [email protected] . And again, don’t forget to include some pictures, ideally of the pub and some people, and if you are offering take-aways, add a menu or two.

Hope to hear from you all soon and good luck with all you are achieving.
