E-bulletin 31-17: Getting ready for Christmas

Our BID Hosts have been visiting town centre businesses to promote our new #CelebrateNorthampton social media campaign.
This is a camp aign aimed at celebrating and promoting everything that is great about our town centre, together.
The first business to get involved with our newly branded selfie boards was Abington Street's A-Plan Insurance. They wrote:
"I love Northampton because the local community has really welcomed A-Plan Insurance."
To ensure your business is visited by our BID Hosts email HERE.

Cleaning update

Contractors will be cleaning Dychurch Lane and The Ridings (to the entrance to the Arcade) this week and from next week they will be focusing on Abington Street.
The work will be carried out overnight between 10pm and 6am  to avoid disruption.

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 artwork call out

This Christmas the BID will be running its annual Golden Ticket prize draw to encourage shoppers and visitors to discover our town centre.
As part of this event we will be creating Golden Ticket entry cards, post boxes and media adverts. If you are a creative design and print company in the town centre and would like to quote for this work please contact us  HERE.

Christmas Golden Ticket post boxes

We would like to invite businesses in the town centre to volunteer to host one our Golden Ticket Post Boxes. The post boxes will be in place from the 20th November to 15th December 2017.
If you would like to host a Golden Ticket Box or would like more information contact info@northamptonbid.co.uk before Friday 8th September.

The magazine will be a full colour, glossy publication which will highlight BID projects and successes since the beginning of this year, as well as focusing on a variety of town centre businesses, areas, things to do and events.
