New app promotes Bradford-only offers

An enterprising pair from Bradford have launched a new hyper-local app which gives access to exclusive offers from local businesses. George Filippis and Stavros Violaris created Appareo as a way for small businesses to connect with consumers without massive overheads. Appareo means “to make something visible” in Latin, which the business partners thought summed up the idea of making small and medium businesses more visible to consumers. The app, which is available in all mobile formats, has already been downloaded 1,000 times since its launch just a few weeks ago…

BRADFORD – A BUMPY ROAD AHEAD

After decades of decay and decline, Bradford’s City Centre seems to be on its path to recovery. The recent reports in the national media suggest some sympathy and leniency in depicting the district. Bradford’s image was badly bruised and brutalised after the two riots. The city, invariably, was portrayed as a very dangerous place to live and to invest by some sections of the media. Sadly, since then, all the successive national governments treated Bradford with indifference and obliviousness. The local governments also miserably suffered from feckless leadership and unimaginative,…

BUSINESS OF THE MONTH

BLACK BULL For many of us British folk residing in the north, who have throughout our lives become accustomed to the grey skies, dark nights and above average seasonal rainfall year in year out, we can only dream of moving to a warmer and sunnier climate, somewhere more exotic and serene in the world. If one had the choice, where would you move if money was not an option? New York, Mumbai, Sydney, or maybe the west coast of the USA? How about Washington D.C, the capital the United States…
