Crewkerne & District (ABCD) to consult with businesses during

projects and actions that can benefit the town's economy.
ABCD will use the data collected to apply for grants to fund the
work identified from the consultation. The more completed forms
received, the easier it will be to persuade funders and other
relevant organisations, to support the actions needed to benefit
businesses in and around Crewkerne.

welcoming feedback from the businesses."
