Ringwood businesses impacted by A31 work to receive Solent Local Enterprise Partnership event support
BUSINESSES in Ringwood affected by the major scheme to improve the A31 have been invited to a support day with free advice.
The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is running the drop-in event at Greyfriars Community Centre at Christchurch Road in the town at 9.45am-5pm on Friday 10th June.
Experts and representative organisations will be on hand to provide information, offer practical advice and cover topics including support structures, digital skills, finance and legal matters.
Attendees can also have one-to-one discussions about any particular issues they are facing.
Paula Swain, Solent LEP business director and a small and medium enterprises business ambassador, said: "There will be free expert advice available to cover all the issues a local business may be facing because of shoppers being unable to access them as a result of the A31 roadworks.
"Those attending will have the opportunity to hear from business support providers about their offers, and to engage with them on a one-to-one basis about specific challenges.
"If you know of any other local business owner who has been impacted by the traffic congestion and would benefit from the support on offer, please let them know about the business support day."
The £25m Highways England project sees the westbound carriageway of the A31 widened to three lanes, alongside other upgrades.
