The Grow Hartlepool initiative has been developed by Hartlepool Borough Council, using the government’s Welcome Back Fund, with the aim of boosting trade for local businesses, following the Covid-19 pandemic. Businesses are invited to join a programme of fully funded digital marketing workshops, running from November 2020 to January 2021. 

A total of seven workshops have been developed by Dan McGovern Digital Marketing, an external provider who is delivering the workshops in person, at the BIS on Whitby Street. 

As the workshops have been delayed by one week, next week commences Week Six of the Grow Hartlepool campaign.

Don’t worry if you have missed any of the sessions; they are all recorded so you won’t miss out on the content!
