Shirley Town Centre Partnership has recruited A-plan Insurance in Stratford Road, Shirley, as its first new recruit of 2010.
A-Plan Insurance contacted the partnership late last year, interested in what it had to offer after seeing details in the Christmas Shopping in Shirley magazine.
The company was celebrating two years of working in Shirley and was looking to continue working with the local community.
To celebrate the birthday, branch manager James Haynes decided they should become affiliated with Shirley Town Centre Partnership.
As a member, businesses receive discounted advertising in the Shopping in Shirley Magazine, three tailor-made networking events, chance to support the Christmas lights for Shirley, receive a regular newsletter with local stats and gain access to the Shirley website www.shirley.towntalk.co.uk
“I felt that there was no better way to celebrate our second birthday than to find a way of becoming more involved in local community activities,” said Mr Haynes. “The Shirley Town Centre partnership clearly represents a good opportunity to do this and to give something back.”
Shirley town centre manager, Becki Wood is keen to welcome new members and anyone interested in joining can call her directly on 0121 704 8752 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
