Bunting, banners and badges ready for City Pride
YOU'VE heard about it, you've read about it and now you're about to see it everywhere.
Businesses all over Ipswich are dressing their windows with bunting, banners and badges in black and white for City Pride.
More than 370 businesses are now signed on to the campaign, which begins on Friday and promotes shopping locally and supporting local businesses.
Robyn Bannister-Tyrrell from Riverlink said shoppers could expect to see black and white all over the centre in August.
"It's so exciting, it's such a wonderful local promotion and we're thrilled to be involved," she said. "I'm looking forward to seeing the bunting and balloons up in our stores to encourage people to shop locally."
Riverlink is not only part of the Ipswich shopping community but supports local sporting and charity organisations in Ipswich as well.
"Our connection with the community is one of the most important roles for Riverlink," Ms Bannister-Tyrrell said.
"Not only do we employ a vast number of local people, we also support the local community by way of our monthly community grants, the Ipswich High School SWITCH program, by supporting the Ipswich Jets and through our dedication to rehoming pets through the RSPCA."
Many retailers in Riverlink are participating in City Pride, and in doing so offering their shoppers a chance to win.
"Throughout the month three shoppers will win the gift wallets and we would be thrilled if Riverlink shoppers won!" Ms Bannister-Tyrrell said.
