Throughout the pandemic Raunds Town Council has done all it can to support local
businesses, with shop front grants and free ‘A’ Frame boards being offered to high
street retailers, as well as free advertising for all local businesses through our Digital
Notice Boards.

The town council is now proud to offer further support with the launch of the Raunds
Town App.

The App offers free listings to all local businesses, lets you know which
businesses are currently operating a click and collect service, and gives app users
exclusive special offers.

Mandy Field, of Raunds based estate agent Frosty Fields, said “we are thrilled to be
part of the App, it looks so professional and is a great way to promote our business.”

As well as supporting local businesses the App will be packed with local information,
news and event and will shortly include walking trails and new features.

Cllr Lee Wilkes, chairman of the council environment leisure and recreation
committee, said: “The council is fully committed to doing whatever it can to help
support residents and businesses, never more so than during the current global
pandemic.

“We are delighted that our digital notice boards have been such a success,
and that the free advertising boards have proven so popular.

“The launch of the Raunds Town App, which is the culmination of months of work behind the scenes, is yet another step in supporting our local businesses, with the added benefit of being able to keep all residents updated on latest news, events and special offers. We hope everyone in the town downloads the app and continues to support our superb local
businesses.”

A council spokesperson also said as well as supporting local businesses we will be
able to send notifications to all app users about important local information such as
flooding, or updates on Covid restrictions.

The App is available to all smart phone users and can be downloaded free from your
normal app store. Simply search Raunds Town App.
