Right now, every business in Chapel Street Precinct is fighting to survive and we are here to help you. Never before has it been more vitally important for our businesses to pivot, innovate and flourish. We will get through this and we can use the media via PR to communicate the unique ways you are evolving your business.


The Chapel Street Precinct Association (CSPA) has now established an on-demand PR press office.
Every day we will be distributing news alerts to relevant media.
These media alerts contain information on how our businesses have evolved, the human interest stories that put a face to the crisis and how CSPA is lobbying on behalf of our businesses for a better deal.

Human interest stories could be:

·         The unique way you are trying to save the jobs of your staff

·         A customer who has gone out of their way to show their appreciation

·         The unusual way you are promoting your business –
either through social media or otherwise

·         The undiscovered talents of your staff that have helped you pivot your business model

·         Anything quirky that you think the media would love to report on
