Trafford Council has appointed Timperley-based Philosophy PR to implement a year-long public relations and promotional campaign to encourage more people to visit Urmston town centre.

As well as launching new events and festivals and introducing promotional activities, Philosophy will provide support for Urmston’s current calendar of events including the Christmas Light Switch On and Business Networking Breakfast.

The company will also champion schemes offered by Trafford Council, such as the Town Centre Business Growth programme that provides financial support to assist with occupying vacant premises.

Sarah Steinhoefel, Co-Chair of Urmston Partnership, said: “Philosophy PR impressed us with its knowledge of Urmston and its requirements for the coming year.  It produced a comprehensive and creative PR and marketing plan that will not only promote Urmston town centre but will excite and engage individuals across the wider North West, encouraging new footfall to the town.”

Gemma Carey, co-founder of Philosophy PR, added: “Urmston is often referred to as ‘the new Chorlton’ however the town centre has its own unique identity with a flourishing food and drink scene as well as well a collection of established independent shops and professional service business. 

“Our proposed PR and marketing plans will enhance what Urmston already has to offer as well as see the introduction of new events, festival and activites that will appeal to those living further afield.  Urmston has entrepreneurial flair in abundance and a wonderful community spirit; is a great place to live, work and play.”

Philosophy will work closely with the Council, Urmston Partnership and local businesses to develop and deliver the project.
