Summer in the Square
You may have noticed that the Old Market Square is looking a little more colourful in our new world, this is just another of our steps to welcome you back to Golden Square.
You are now able to enjoy Summer in the Square with your friends and family as we have put seating in place to safely encourage people into the Square.
Our number one commitment remains the welfare of our employees, retailers and customers and we have taken a number of steps to ensure this is a safe environment.
- 2 metre distanced table set ups
- Cleaning stations (including hand sanitiser, wipes and hand gels)
- Increased external bins
- Increased cleaning regime
- Additional customer service staff
We ask all our customers visiting to not move the tables and chairs and to stay safe and respect others.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you are ready.
Meet the real faces of business in Warrington
Local business owners’ partner together to launch ‘real5 Faces’; showcasing the real faces of businesses in Warrington in the hopes that it will encourage people to keep it local.
Ambitious real5 Networking founder, Andrew Hibbert, and Ian Cox, Centre Director of Warrington’s very own Golden Square, have teamed up to put business owners at the forefront during this unprecedented time.
The brand new website www.real5faces.com, created by real5 Digital, is accessible by all to browse the faces behind real businesses and delve deeper by taking a look at the individual profiles and stories.
By emphasising the people rather than the businesses, Andrew and Ian are hoping to encourage everyday consumers to shop local wherever possible. The unique profiles make it clear to see that it is real, everyday people who are working hard to provide services and products to the community. It is those same mothers, fathers, uncles and connected family members who will benefit when you support local businesses over corporate entities.
The launch comes at a time where restrictions are beginning to slowly ease in the UK and global companies are beginning to re-open, making it more important than ever to shop locally and stay loyal to the businesses that have been working hard during lockdown to provide our community with fresh food, locally distilled gin and other products and services.
The concept of connecting businesses, people and the wider community does not come new to either Andrew or Ian, who are passionate about creating new opportunities and experiences for our town.
Andrew Hibbert, Managing Director of real5 Networking and iSupply Group:
“How you act during these difficult times with your staff, your customers and your suppliers will define how you are perceived in the future […] to be in partnership with the Golden Square on this fantastic initiative is what true collaboration is all about. The people make the town, it’s time for the town to focus on the people.”
Ian Cox, Centre Director of Golden Square:
“With Golden Square being part of the real5 Network it was a no brainer for us to collaborate on this initiative. The beauty of this town is in its people and it’s vitally important that we focus on those individuals who provide a variety of wonderful products and services throughout the town. real5 Faces is about understanding the story behind the shop front and how you can make a difference through thinking local with your pound.”
The unforgiving situation we find ourselves in has shown the importance of pulling together and supporting each other; through spending money locally, in our town centre and for our own local businesses, we can help businesses get through this difficult period and continue to flourish in what will be our new version of normal.
