About The Emsworth Business Association

The EBA has over 130 members and plays a pivotal role in the local community.  We organise and support a wide variety of events during the year including the St George's Day Parade, Emsworth British Food Fortnight, the Community Apple Press, an annual outdoor Harvest Festival and the hugely popular Emsworth Christmas Lights.  We also manage the Emsworth Loyalty Card scheme, designed to encourage and reward residents who shop locally.

Membership brings local businesses together and demonstrates a commitment to the wider community since membership fees fund projects that cover every aspect of Emsworth life.

We work hard to actively promote Emsworth as a destination for visitors and residents, while at the same time offering our members opportunities to promote their own businesses.  We do this with visitor leaflets, visitor information boards, sponsorship opportunities, and of course through this website.

This website is an incredible resource for both members and the community.  We post events, local news, and job vacancies for everyone to view.  We also have a members only area where EBA members can offer discounts to other members and create an online presence for themselves here on this website.  It is part of a strategy to use all aspects of social media to promote Emsworth and bring businesses together.  As part of this strategy the EBA is setting up free WiFi in the Square and is active on Facebook and Twitter.
