Brilliant idea from Worcester News @JohnWilsonWN using twitter to promote the fact that shops are still open despite floods.— BPE Employment Law (@BPE_Employment) February 10, 2014
Worcester is very much open for business, that is the message from local companies.
Adrian Field, Worcester BID Manager, said businesses in the city centre were keen to let people know they were still open despite road closures.
"There is perhaps the perception that Worcester city is on lock down but that is not the case.
"Businesses are still open and there is lots of car parking. Routes into the city are also open and train travel is still operational.
"The businesses are very keen to maintain normality."
Tweets will be going out today using #open4business to promote local businesses trading in the city.
Despite road closures, Worcester city centre is very much #open4business today!— Worcester BID (@WorcesterBID) February 10, 2014
