SPAR UK and Harvest Energy are delighted to announce the launch of a new branded forecourt concept, designed to help convenience retailers stand up to the multiples and compete against the oil companies.

The exciting collaboration will offer progressive independent retailers an entire SPAR branded petrol filling station option.

This new alliance offers retailers and consumers a host of benefits, including access to shop supply and entire forecourt branding from SPAR, as well as access to Harvest Energy fuel supply.

Cross promotions linking shop purchases to money off fuel will be available, as will flexible stock and supply options, all aimed at helping independent retailers drive sales and profitability, backed by the combined expertise of SPAR and Harvest Energy.

The SPAR brand will feature prominently across each site, on the canopy, pumps, poll sign and shop fascia.

Mark Steven, SPAR UK Business Development Controller, said the new offer would be flexible and dependent on the type and size of site and customer demographic.

Clydesdale Bank is proud to announce that they have agreed a partnership with Scotland’s ground-breaking new home of live entertainment, The Hydro, at the SECC complex in Glasgow.

The Bank, which is celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2013, will become the official banking partner to The Hydro and Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC).

Alastair Christmas, Regional Director, Business and Private Banking for Clydesdale Bank, said: “We are delighted to be the official banking partner of The Hydro and SECC, especially in such a landmark year for the Bank. We are looking forward to bringing people together for great experiences as well as providing excellent exposure for our brand in one of our core operating areas.”

Helen Page, Chief Marketing Officer for Clydesdale Bank, said: “We are very proud of our local focus and with more than two million people expected to attend the complex each year, this partnership will provide an opportunity to demonstrate our care and support for local communities and businesses in Glasgow, as well as across Scotland.  With the Hydro estimated to contribute £131m annually to the Scottish economy, we’re delighted to be associated with a venue which will have such a huge impact on the future prosperity and economic growth of the whole region.”

Digital agency Redweb, a multi-award winner in the retirement property sector over the past year, has sealed a deal to build age-exclusive housing specialist Hanover’s new website.

The Bournemouth-based agency will start work on the site this month, having won the contract at the end of March. The new site is scheduled to go live towards the end of the year.

Redweb is committed to offering its clients the best value for money, and is using its experience to provide Hanover with significant cost savings. To this end, the agency will create the site using its own pre-existing base build in the open source content management system (CMS) Umbraco. Redweb’s team has worked extensively with the platform, meaning it can save time and money by providing provisionally built features such as basic responsive templates, navigation widgets and user interface (UI) components ‘out of the box’.

The agency’s extensive experience of user-centric design will be integral to the project, as will its work with later life property developer and services provider McCarthy & Stone, with whom it scooped Gold and Bronze at the Digital Impact Awards and Transform Awards respectively. The new site will include an intuitive, easy-to-use property search function to help Hanover’s clients find the properties that best suit their needs.
