COVID-19

We have put together a list of businesses we know of that are still open or offering a delivery service in Brighouse Town Centre. Download the LoyalFree App to view the trail for free. 

If you are one of these essential businesses and would like to be added to the list please complete the form HERE.

We have also produced a guide to help all businesses safely reopen which you can find HERE.

Looking for support to help plan for a return to the workplace over the coming months whilst COVID-19 is still prevalent? BASDA (a leading trade body for business software companies) have produced this guide to help all businesses anticipate and prepare how they safely manage ‘return to work’ scenarios for employees and to plan now for what is likely to be a phased return to the workplace.

Advice for workplaces can be found HERE (document by the World Health Organisation or WHO). 

The BRC has published a useful guide suggesting issues that retailers may need to consider as they start to plan to re-open there premises in the coming weeks. The guide can be found HERE. The document is likely to be updated as government release policy so worth keeping checking our website for changes.

Brighouse BID is committed to supporting the town centre and supporting the local economy by delivering high-quality events. However, at this difficult time, we need to prioritise public health and safety.  We are working closely to follow the Government’s guidance and have therefore decided upon the following:

1. You will have recently received your levy bill for 2020/2021 which is due in April. We will not be chasing any outstanding payments for at least three months until we know what the situation will be post the outbreak.

2. The office on Bradford Road will now be closed until further notice. We will be available by telephone on 01484 937006 or email at info@brighousebid.co.uk

3. All events in Brighouse have been postponed until further notice. 

4. Please keep checking the government’s website in relation to the support that is currently available https://bit.ly/2UgtifZ

Clearly, this course of action is dictated by government measures announced, almost on a daily basis – and in such unprecedented uncertainty – this is now our only option. We will continue to work remotely and support our businesses where we can. 

Our neighbours at Harrington Law have produced a free temporary homeworking policy in response to the present Coronavirus crisis. This can be downloaded HERE.

The policy is being provided free of charge and whilst there’s absolutely no obligation for you to do so, Harrington Law are asking any business or organisation that decides to use the policy to consider making a £25.00 donation to the Outlook Trust for the Visually Impaired (www.outlooktrust.org)  account no 21510797 Sort code 40-26-02).

Event Statement 

We are working closely to follow the Government’s guidance and have therefore decided to postpone the Brighouse events including the Brighouse Easter Trail (Saturday 11th April), the April Artisan Market (Sunday 26th April) and the Brighouse 1940’s Weekend (Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th June).

Due to the Government’s guidelines on social distancing and their declaration that emergency services will not support events, it is with heavy hearts that we have to make this tough decision but we will find an alternative date later in the year for our popular 1940’s Weekend. We will continue to review the COVID-19 virus and follow Government guidelines before committing to a new date.
