With all the recent talk in Kidsgrove about appointing a Kidsgrove Town Centre Manager on £30,000 per year, it has got us thinking at Whitehill Online what we could do to help promote Kidsgrove businesses, without asking for a single Pound.
Kidsgrove Councillor Margaret Astle posted online that the Kidsgrove Town Centre Manager would be responsible for promoting Kidsgrove and encouraging business growth in Kidsgrove. There have been many questions asked about the role of a Kidsgrove Town Centre Manager and if this job is really as valid use of £30,000. Should Newcastle Borough Council be spending £30,000 of tax payers’ money on a job which could be done by existing businesses forming a Kidsgrove Chamber of Trade?
So we have got the ball rolling in promoting Kidsgrove business. We are launching a Kidsgrove Business Directory, which will be totally free for any Kidsgrove business to get listed on. Hopefully by promoting businesses in Kidsgrove in an online area where Kidsgrove residents visit, we can encourage some local business growth in Kidsgrove.
We have listed a few Kidsgrove businesses to start with, who we could find online, however we are aware this is only a starting point. If you have or know someone who has a business in Kidsgrove and would like a free listing, please contact us with the business name, full address and contact details. As a Kidsgrove business directory we are only going to promote businesses which are based in the Kidsgrove area.
Who needs £30,000 of tax payers money to promote Kidsgrove?
