Proud of West Berkshire is an initiative to support the independent organisations within West Berkshire. Promoting and encouraging their use for growth and benefit to the local economy.
I believe the Independent business contributes to the identity of a village, town and wider area. From the Butcher, Baker to the Candlestick-maker! I've had the pleasure of meeting many business owners and seen the passion they have for their trade.
Proud of West Berkshire is keen for businesses to be given the opportunity to showcase their offerings and attract visitors and help local trade to discover their business.
It's also important for those who live in the area to be able to support their local business, and by increasing the awareness off these organisations, people can help contribute to its success.
Through this initiative we hope to connect people with their local independent and highlight the area for all the good things it has to offer.
