Celebrate Black Country Day with #MadeInTheBlackCountry as Black Country LEP encourages local businesses to get involved

To celebrate the diversity and strength of business in the Black Country, the Black Country LEP is once again leading a Twitter campaign on Sunday 14 July in support of Black Country Day and Black Country businesses.

The Black Country LEP is encouraging local businesses to:

  1. Take a photograph of their product(s), workplace or staff
  2. Post the picture to Twitter on 14 July to celebrate Black Country Day
  3. Include the hashtag #MadeInTheBlackCountry along with any others which might apply (i.e. #manufacturing, #business etc). Please also mention @officialBCday and tag in @blackcountrylep where possible.

Black Country Day on 14 July, marks the region’s industrial heritage and the anniversary of the invention of the World’s first steam engine, the Newcomen Engine, built in the Black Country in 1712.

Today, the Black Country is still home to a world class manufacturing and engineering base, one of the UKs leading supply chain centres with excellent collaborative research and development opportunities and home to the UKs most successful Enterprise Zones.
