We have had a number of organisations withdraw from the event for organisational and service user reasons, followed later in the day by the announcement from the Prime Minister encouraging everyone to avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to curb the spread of coronavirus.
I’m sure it will come as no surprise but with these factors in mind we have taken the decision to postpone the event due to take place tomorrow afternoon, and hope to reschedule once normality returns. Thank you to those organisations that had signed up to support the event, we hope that you will be able to participate once a revised date is identified.
For specific business advice The Growth Hub (Swindon and Wiltshire LEP) has launched a COVID19 support page where all the latest news, announcements and advice can be found. This is the first port of call for local business and national news updates. We ask that, if you haven’t already, register for free with the Growth Hub to keep up to date with announcements and advice, and share this message with family, friends and other members of the business community who are worried about this crisis.
