Helping hand for firms as latest crisis set to mean soaring costs

Paul Golder writes for the Brentwood Gazette

All the way through September we’re highlighting local businesses on Phoenix FM with a special month-long feature, Brentwood In Business.

It’s been a bad couple of years for local businesses, first having to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic and then suffering huge increases in their bills due to the UK’s current cost of living crisis.

So we’ve decided to pick a local business every weekday in September – 22 in all – and invite them in to hear what they do and how they benefit our local economy.

The first person through the door in this year’s feature was Fraser Donaldson from Easigrass who came in to talk about his award-winning artificial grass company.

We’ll also be featuring many more businesses, including Tees Law, Zest Recycle, Howe Chartered Surveyors, Beresfords, Mullis and Peake, Baker Labels, Blue Serif, Stagecoach, Razzamataz, Liquorice and Allen Ford.

And it’s all free! None of the companies are paying us for airtime, it’s just something we want to do to promote local business – although as we are a non-profit with the same commercial challenges, our begging bowl hasn’t been locked away just yet …

You can hear the interviews again at phoenixfm.com where you can also see a list of all the people coming in on air to talk, businesses or otherwise.
