Retail Assist Loves #Nottingham
Tomorrow, a campaign has been organised to get Nottingham trending on Twitter. This idea was generated up to raise awareness of the city: http://www.getnottinghamtrending.co.uk/. As Retail Assist’s Head office is based in the centre of Nottingham, we thought it would be a nice idea to get involved.
Personally, one of my favourite things about being based in the city centre is the ability to go out clothes shopping during my lunch break – I’m not sure my bank manager agrees however!
I also wanted to find out what some of the team thought about living and working in Nottingham. Below are their responses to the question “What do you love about Nottingham?”
