Support 'Firms Hit By Storms' Call

DCCI  Ian Girling

1:35pm 15th February 2014

Dorchester Chamber of Commerce and Industry is calling for people to support local businesses who've been affected by the storms.

The organisation's Chief Exec Ian Girling says firms in the county have shown remarkable resilience during a challenging time.

He told Wessex FM:

 "The storm on Wednesday afternoon was one of the worst so far with trees down on roads and rail lines, and more flooding in coastal areas.

 "Some businesses have found it difficult to make deliveries, arrange meetings, see suppliers and get out and about.

 "The retail sector is also suffering with customers unwilling to venture out in the rain. Tourism is also very important to the local economy, and it will have felt an impact.

 "But Dorset businesses very much remain open and I would urge people to support them with loyalty, custom and understanding as they strive to maintain services at a challenging time."
