Burnley Business Scott Dawson Advertising Is Stepping Up Production to Keep Retail & Manufacturing Staff Safe from Coronavirus as they Return to Work

The Government has issued guidance for all businesses on Covid 19 working practices. Scott Dawson Advertising has a kit to help organisations maintain social distancing rules.

Public health officials are advising the nation to keep 2 metres apart at all times. This is because the coronavirus is thought to be spread by water droplets in coughs and sneezes. By keeping your distance as much as possible you can significantly reduce your chances of infection.

That’s why Scott Dawson Advertising Ltd (SDA), based in Burnley, has created Covid-19 Retail and Business Social Distancing Kits. Everybody wants to help the nation get through the coronavirus health crisis, but sometimes you just need a reminder to maintain social distancing.

Having brightly coloured signage around business and retail outlets goes a long way to reminding people to keep a reasonable distance.

The kits include:

  • 4 x A4 posters
  • 1 x A3 poster
  • 1 x banner
  • 20 x window stickers
  • 1 x floor graphic
  • 1 x A board
  • 1 x pull up banner
  • 1 x sneeze guard

These items can also be purchased separately as required and free local delivery is offered to businesses.

Zahida Shamim, Account Director of Scott Dawson Advertising commented:

“With the country getting back to work, business need to be prepared for new working arrangements. Simply keeping your distance is enough to save lives and protect the NHS, and with these Covid-19 protection kits, that’s what trying to achieve – we have had a massive uplift in supply of these kits both locally and nationally with larger companies wanting bespoke items which we can do all inhouse”.

Accrington Food & Drink Festival 2017

The Accrington Food & Drink Festival 2017 – More than 14,000 people travelled into Accrington for the 20th annual Food & Drink Festival.

It was a wonderful occasion with celebrity chef Richard Fox performing live cookery demonstrations, a live WW2 battle re-enactment to commemorate D-Day and an ‘Oops Upside Your Head’ world record attempt.

All this along with over 70 stalls to enjoy, serving food, drink and much more. Thank you to everyone who attended and to our two main sponsors Duckworths Estate Agents and Accrington & Rossendale College.

We hope to see you there next year!

Supporting Treasures of Rusholme calendar project

A Rusholme community arts organisation is celebrating the heritage of the area through a calendar of images – and Scott Dawson Advertising was delighted to provide the design and print.

The ‘Treasures of Rusholme 2017’ calendar, produced by Creative Rusholme using images by local artist and photographer Phil Barton, is on sale now. It features striking photographs of 12 key locations from across the area, including Georgian properties on Moon Grove, Manchester Central Mosque in Victoria Park, Whitworth Art Gallery, modernist icon The Toastrack and The Curry Mile.

Through the calendar Creative Rusholme aims to raise the profile of the local community and develop the huge cultural potential of the neighbourhood on Manchester’s Southern Corridor. The arts organisation believes Rusholme has so much to offer: two galleries, three parks, a major conservation area, and residents from all over the world including many thousands of young people.

Phil Barton gave his photography free of charge for the production of the calendar. He explained why he was so keen to get involved in the Treasures of Rusholme calendar project. Phil says, “We are proud of both the area’s heritage and its vibrant present, and the Treasures of Rusholme 2017 calendar celebrates this.

“I was happy to provide my images free of charge to the project and work with Creative Rusholme to see it come to fruition. We hope that the calendar will encourage people to look anew at our wonderful neighbourhood and appreciate just how much there is to see and do in Rusholme.”

The calendar is being sold by volunteers from a variety of Rusholme community organisations. All money raised from the sale of the calendars will go straight back into the local community.

Local resident Elaine Bishop explains, “Local groups will share the proceeds from the sale of the calendars to help ‘green’ Rusholme, through tree planting and the planting of bee friendly plants, local food growing and arranging community clean-ups.”

Scott Dawson Advertising did the work free of charge as part of our commitment to supporting community endeavour.
