Do you need PPE to reopen your business?

The Eastbourne Hospitality Association has linked up with Chamber Members to offer an easy one-stop shop for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)  to help you re-open your business without breaking the bank.  Hotels, restaurants and other businesses in the Eastbourne area are being offered access to a consortium of local suppliers to provide competitively priced PPE for members and the wider business community.

Supported by the Chamber of Commerce, Business Improvement District and VisitEastbourne, follow this link for the special PPE shop for local businesses.

EHA Vice Chair Kristian Hayter said: “As Eastbourne enters the phased reopening of the town, PPE is high on the agenda for all business.

“It is particularly important for smaller businesses who will want to buy smaller quantities of these items – and with 87%  of businesses in our town classed as microbusinesses, it is clear that this will be an issue for many of our members.”

As well as being produced locally where possible, the essential items – including gloves, masks, aprons, hand sanitizer and anti-viral disinfectants – have been responsibly sourced to ensure that vital NHS supplies are protected.

Mr Hayter, who owns a Bed & Breakfast on Eastbourne seafront, added: “As part of the Eastbourne Recovery Group, we are delighted to have taken the lead in the creation of this online shop – and we are equally thrilled that we have been able to source them in a way that will not diminish the supplies for the NHS.

“These are challenging times for so many people in our town and we hope that many businesses in the area will take advantage of this online site as we begin to get back on track.”
