Golden Ticket success

Our 20 post boxes are now dotted around the town centre and in the lead-up to the prize draw on 14 December they are all being emptied by the BID Hosts every Friday.
 
Pictured is Andrew Cruden, BID Director and owner of Market Square News , whose Golden Ticket post box was crammed with nearly 120 entries on Friday.
 
Please continue to encourage your customers and clients to enter and, should they win, to spend their vouchers with you!

Christmas Treasure Quest Trail
 
Northampton Borough Council, with The Looking Glass Theatre, is organising a festive Treasure Quest in the town centre on
Sunday, 1 December.
 
The BID is now seeking prizes from town centre businesses so if you are interested please get in touch. Businesses that provide prizes will be promoted throughout the event.
Small Business Saturday
 
Small Business Saturday takes place on 7th December 2019 – a unique opportunity for our small, independent businesses in the town centre.
 
Small businesses are in direct competition with Black Friday sales, so this is an opportunity to get ahead and remind people about the event in advance.
 
The BID is planning a social media campaign, so get involved by liking and sharing. Use the hashtag #CelebrateNorthampton and at least one of these: #SmallBizSat #ShopSmall #SmallBusinessSaturday.
 
If you would like the BID Hosts to come and take your photo please let us know and email
 
A networking breakfast is planned in association with Northampton Borough Council on Small Business Saturday (7 December) at Café Track at 7.30am. Please register your interest by emailing Holly at the Borough Council HERE.

Operation Lily was launched by Northamptonshire Police last month, which has seen 10 extra police officers deployed to the town centre. Since then there have been:
 
  • 71 arrests
  • 80 intelligence submissions
  • 63 stop & search

There has been marked improvement to the town as a result of this and we would welcome your comments and feedback. Please email info@northamptonbid.co.uk.
