All of us at Revive & Thrive hope that whatever your role, wherever you are working, you are staying safe, following guidelines and doing as much as you can to continue supporting the places that you care about.
With no immediate end in sight to the Covid-19 crisis, our aim is to bring you as much information as we can about what place managers and partnerships around the UK, and indeed around the world, are doing to support their places, the businesses in them and those that visit them.
We have a few interesting stories for you this week – and please do get in touch to let us know how you are supporting your communities at this incredibly difficult time for us all.
Stay safe, everyone.
