E-bulletin 30-17: Christmas and #CelebrateNorthampton campaign
The #CelebrateNorthampton social media campaign will be taken to a new level this week, with the launch of new photo boards.
The BID Hosts will be visiting town centre 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.
It is yet another way we can all celebrate and promote everything that is great about our town centre, together.
Watch #CelebrateNorthampton continue to build momentum and get involved, make sure you search for, like and follow 'NorthamptonBID' on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To ensure your business is visited by our BID Hosts email HERE.
Parts of Bridge Street and Derngate are due to be blitzed during the BID's intensive deep cleaning this week.
Areas from Angel Street to Kingswell Street junctions and from All Saints Square to Castilian Street will be targeted as part of the BID's ongoing pressure washing programme.
The work will be carried out overnight between 10pm and 6am to avoid disruption and is due to be completed by 16th August.
Cleaning the streets of Northampton town centre is the remit of Northampton Borough Council, and the BID's targeted deep cleaning programme is part of our commitment to provide some additional cleaning services over and above the Council's statutory provision.
Christmas design projects
The BID is looking for designers and printers for the annual Golden Ticket prize draw campaign - due to run again this Christmas.
The prize draw encourages more shoppers and visitors into the town centre over the festive period, as they hand post entry forms into special Golden Ticket post boxes to win town centre shopping vouchers.
Golden Ticket entry forms, post boxes and media adverts will be among the design jobs.
If you are a creative design and print company in the town centre and would like to quote for this work email us HERE.
Can you host a Golden Ticket post box?
Volunteer to host one our Golden Ticket prize draw post boxes this Christmas.
We are looking for a number of town centre businesses to house our specially designed post boxes from the 20th November to 15th December, so that members of the public can post their Golden Ticket entry forms.
