Events and Webinars

Detailed below is a list of events to support local businesses or inform residents regarding the work of the Public Protection Partnership (PPP). Many of the events are hosted by PPP, but we'll also list events that we feel will benefit our local businesses and residents. 

Included in the list is the PPP series of virtual monthly lunchtime learning sessions hosted by one or more of our team, or an external specialist in that area. The 'Lunchtime Learning' series is the first Wednesday of each month at 1pm via zoom.

The Government’s plan to gradually ease lockdown restrictions mean that further restrictions are planned to be lifted on Monday, 17th May.

To help businesses prepare for re-opening and operate under the step 3 changes, the Public Protection Partnership are hosting a free webinar for hospitality businesses to attend on Tuesday 11th May at 9am.
The webinar will include guidance for the hospitality sector on the step 3 lifting of restrictions. There will also be an opportunity for businesses to ask specific questions during the webinar.

The session is free and open to all Bracknell Forest, West Berkshire and Wokingham hospitality businesses to attend. 

Vicky Lister, Principal Trading Standards Officer said: “Throughout the various restrictions the council’s Public Protection Service has sought to provide advice and support to businesses. These are the latest in a series of business briefings which will be supplemented by more tailored business advice should a specific business need it.”

In addition to the webinar, businesses are encouraged to visit the council’s COVID-19 Help for Business webpages, which have further guidance and support.
