Celebrate Northampton
A Plan Insurance love the local community 

We will be boosting our continued #CelebrateNorthampton social media campaign again this month, promoting everything that is great about our town centre.
Look out for the BID Hosts who will be visiting businesses, encouraging people to take part and have their picture taken with the #CelebrateNorthampton boards.
Simply write down why you love Northampton town centre, hold it to the camera and smile. We will then share your snap on social media and tag your business.

To make sure your business is visited by our BID Hosts email HERE. Don't forget to search for, like and follow 'NorthamptonBID' on FacebookTwitter and Instagram too.
