All About Hitchin
NEW HITCHIN BASKET WEBSITE 29/5/20
Submit your business today!

With the Hitchin Town Centre Recovery plan well underway, we are launching a new, easy to use website, specifically to provide a platform for visitors to purchase from and support the town centre businesses.  
 
The Hitchin Basket will launch at the end of next week and is a central point for customers to effectively search for the goods and services they require from the town centre shops and businesses. It will be heavily promoted across all our social media sites and there will be posters all over town, and in the shops and businesses.
 
The website operates with a search facility – by either inputting a business name or by a key word e.g ‘Wool’ , therefore it is incredibly important that we have as much information on your company as possible.
 
This initiative has been trialled successfully in Henley-on-Thames www.henleybasket.co.uk  so please check it out to see how it works. (theirs does not have the keyword facility however – people search for ‘Butcher’ or ‘Newsagent’ etc)
 
To make it easier, we have provided a form for you to fill in and upload. It will include boxes for all the relevant information we need to enable your listing to be as informative as possible.
 
Before you go on the link you will need the following information to hand:
 
  • Contact details
  • Opening Times
  • How to pay
  • Delivery/Collection/shop in store
  • A brief description of your business including  selection of key words related to your business  -  as many as are relevant
  • Links to your social media sites
  • A colour photo of you with some stock, or in/ front of your store/business. This needs to be portrait.
