York is open for business!

York is open for business! February 2020 and York is experiencing flooding but the city centre is largely unaffected.

The floods - York is open for business

For many in York last year, Christmas was cut short when the floods of Boxing Day arrived. The city’s plight, along with many other areas around the country, was well documented by the media but it was also giving the impression that the entire city was underwater and a complete no-go zone

The map and Indie York

With the campaign set in motion by the 30 initial businesses, the aim was to turn this negative news of the floods into a positive.

Our first members - interviews and photographs

Over the last few months, with the support of the York BID, the team have been going out to meet the current 30 members to interview them and shoot photos for the map.

The soft launch
