Finding your way around Oswestry’s industrial estates and business parks just got a whole lot easier with the fully refreshed FIND IT, BUY IT Oswestry Business Directory & Map – inside your Oswestry Life magazine!

This directory is packed with businesses across Oswestry Industrial Estate, Artillery Business Park, Park Hall and along Shrewsbury Road. There are 50 categories to explore to find what you’re looking for from builders’ merchants to document shredding, upholstery repairs to new windows – you may be surprised what’s on your doorstep!

“We are really pleased to be publishing this directory showcasing local businesses,” says Oswestry BID Manager, Adele Nightingale. “It will help customers navigate the estates and find what they’re looking for, as well as giving businesses a tool for promoting their business.”

Following on from the madcap Easter frolics of The Street Circus, Oswestry BID are thrilled to see the return of THE BEACH to Festival Square for the Bank Holiday Weekend, 25-26 May 2024.

This will be the third year for The Beach, such is its popularity with children and families, enjoying seventeen tonnes of the finest sand, lined by deckchairs and all surrounded by the sound of waves and seagull calls!

BID Manager, Adele Nightingale, is looking forward to another great family weekend in the town centre. “Any outdoor event like this requires lovely weather to make it really special,” she says, “so we are hoping for a couple of wonderfully sunny days. It’s all part of our desire to make Oswestry a great place to live, work, visit and enjoy. Of course, what really makes it is to see the smiles on the faces of the children and families, relaxing and building sandcastles!”
