THE UK' s COASTAL TOWNS AND VILLAGES
In wake of the Pandemic and Brexit, Welsh coastal towns are more in need of support than ever before. Lack of staffing, tourist footfall over 2020 and resources have left these places cut off and overwhelmed.
Years Of Experience
The Around Project's mission is to support and nurture the online presence of Coastal independent businesses.
How do we do this?
Not only do we provide a free platform for local businesses to gain exposure, quickly and easily, we're also committed to offering additional services such as design, web building, branding and app development.
Coastal commerce shouldn't be a Summer trend but a year-round opportunity. We want to bridge the gap, and connect customers with great local produce all year round.
We are a digital platform that champions local heroes at a granular level. We want to provide a free platform that showcases small businesses in the best way, so they can focus on what they do best whilst knowing that The Around Project is representing their site whilst providing digital support and training.
The Around Project’s platform is free to use for visitors and offers a free listing service for businesses with additional enhanced chargeable services.
