Let's Keep the Heart in Hertfordshire: Businesses and councils unite to help drive economic recovery
Hertfordshire Growth Board is championing a 'Let's Keep the Heart in Hertfordshire' campaign to drive economic recovery and renewal.
The board is made up of the county council, the 10 district and borough councils and Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
Director Patsy Dell said: "It's never been more important for businesses and public sector organisations to work together to help drive the growth of our economy and create a sustainable future for everyone.
"The past 12 months have placed an incredible toll on our communities. We are delighted to support this campaign and help create the right conditions for our people, places and businesses to flourish."
Briege Leahy, chief executive of Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, said: "In what has been an incredibly challenging year, the chamber team and I have seen that businesses are keen to offer assistance to others wherever they can, which has been further highlighted in our Hertfordshire Heroes Award category in the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards.
"The 'Let's Keep the Heart in Hertfordshire' campaign's purpose is to help rebuild Hertfordshire and highlight commercial opportunities for Herts-based businesses, and it's lovely to see how much take-up we've received.
"We invite all Herts enterprises to get involved and spread the news that the county is open for new business, and we will share contract opportunities for those seeking suppliers from within Herts."
