E-bulletin 28-17: #CelebrateNorthampton


Our new social media campaign, which will focus on, celebrate and promote everything that is great about our town centre, is starting this week.
Northampton town centre BID is working with Northampton Borough Council on the new campaign so look out for our positive messages and   get involved by sharing things you love about the town using #CelebrateNorthampton hashtag.
Summer events and activities
We will be focusing on 'Things to do' in the town centre over the summer months to begin with, so do let us know if you have any events or activities taking place during July and August so that we can include them in our messages.
The BID and Borough Council are in the process of producing some guidelines and a toolkit to help make it easier for businesses to get involved   too .
Search for 'NorthamptonBID' on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to watch the campaign unfold, or for  more information contact the BID team HERE.
Let's all #CelebrateNorthampton together.

Independents Campaign

Northampton town centre BID is continuing to promote independent retailers and businesses on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels, and tying some of this in with the national initiative - Independent Retailer Month.
There has been a great response so far, with the Hosts taking pictures of businesses and sharing their details via the BID's social media channels.
If you are an independent business and would like us to come and take pictures email us HERE or tag 'NorthamptonBID' on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Retail Sales Monitor

Northampton town centre BID is asking businesses to consider participating in a new  weekly report.
The Retail Sales Monitor  would detail sales and footfall information both locally and nationally,  and enable  businesses to compare their own company's performance to that of others in the area  or  against national trends.
To make the report as robust as possible, it must include figures from a large number of businesses across all sectors which is why we are asking Northampton town centre businesses to consider taking part.
