Cotton Court Business Centre will once again be supporting the promotion of Prestfest! We have been asked by North and Western Lancs Chamber of Commerce andPreston BID (Business Improvement District) to work alongside them on a project that joined together a selection of city centre venues in a steering group to bring you Preston by Night.  Preston by Night promote and raised awareness online for a new event called Prestfest, a 3 day celebration of Preston’s evening entertainment.

So what is Preston by Night and why have they the venues come together to promote Preston as a good night out?

Preston is one of only a handful of towns and cities in the country to be awarded the prestigious Purple Flag standard, demonstrating the City Centre’s achievement in creating a safe, easily accessible and lively & vibrant night out. Its diverse clientele and abundance of social activities validates Preston’s determination in maintaining high standards.

It is not just for the bars and clubs. With cuisine from every corner of the world and a great late night culture, theatres, comedy, an annual programme of events and a range of hotels, Preston is a key night time destination for all.

For more information about this prestigious award visit www.purpleflag.org.uk

Cotton Court Business Centre have been tasked with increasing the pages likes, customer interaction, app design, online branding, photography coverage, and the support of all the business within Preston City Centre that are taking part in the 3 day festival by promoting their offers and activities.

Below is the custom build welcome page that everyone is taken to before “liking” the page.

We are continuing to work with the ChamberBID and Preston by Night group to develop and evolve the project.

The next Prestfest celebration will be from Friday 23rd May ’til Sunday 25th May, Bank Holiday weekend! Lots more info coming soon, but save the dates!

Supermarket chain Morrisons opening new store

By Comments Off on Supermarket chain Morrisons opening new store

Supermarket chain Morrisons are opening a new store on Blackpool Road in Preston.

The work for the new store is well underway and is due to be open in the next few weeks. The new store has created hundreds of new jobs, and we have hosted their interviews here at Cotton Court for the last three weeks.

They have first week was a very interactive group interview stage, then successful candidates were invited back for individual interviews over weeks two and three.

2013-09-26 15.43.27

Amongst the candidates were some of our client’s from Remploy and all of us here at Cotton Court would like to wish them the best of luck that their applications have been successful.

The chain, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket company, has previously announced its intention to create dozens more smaller convenience stores as part of a nationwide expansion. It is also developing its online offer with a new grocery ordering service.

2013-09-26 15.58.01

2013-09-26 15.59.31

We really enjoyed hosting the interviews and working with the team at Morrisons…it is going to seem quiet without them. They will be back in the next few weeks for a series of training sessions for the new staff, and they are having a team building event at Glovers bar in the next few weeks…no doubt a few members of our team will see them down there!

We are looking forward to visiting the new store when it opens and seeing a few familiar faces.
