Working together - How the OBA can support your business

I have always known about the existence of the OBA through the organisation of the annual Christmas event but to be honest, other than that, I didn’t really know what they did. I first got more involved, when I went along to a discovery workshop run by the OBA in 2016. I found it really interesting how many diverse businesses there were within Overton, other than those visible in the village centre.

There are so many ‘hidden talents’ in the village as many of us work from home during school hours. Not having a ‘shop front’ can be detrimental.  I would like to think that the networking possibilities and the OBA Open Overton website, etc., can help act as a ‘shop window’ for those of us that are not so publicly visible on the high street. Many of us begin our businesses because we love what we do – anything that can make marketing and publicity easier is a bonus!

OBA at Overton Scarecrow Festival

Members of the committee were pleased to represent the Overton Business Association (OBA) at the Overton Scarecrow Festival on Saturday 14th July. The stall was covered in prizes donated by many OBA members and the tombola was a great success with those attending the festival. The winners were very grateful for the generous prizes that were on offer from local businesses, and we have since heard that some have been directly in touch with the businesses themselves to say thank you!
