COVID-19

Please see HERE the businesses that are still open or offering deliveries in Brighouse. If you are one of these essential businesses and would like to be added to the list please complete the form HERE.

Brighouse BID are 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 on 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 01484 937006 or email at info@brighousebid.co.uk

3. All events in Brighouse have been postponed until further notice. This includes the Easter Trail, the April Artisan Market and the 1940’s weekend.

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

Clearly, this course of action is dictated by new 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. Please keep an eye on our website for further information.

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.
