Northampton town centre 'Cash Mob' and more

First ever town centre 'Cashmob'
 
Takings at St Giles Cheese were given a boost on Saturday 2 nd February after it was chosen for the first ever Northampton town centre Cashmob.
 
Organised by Transition Town Northampton, a voluntary organisation which aims to create thriving, healthy and caring local communities, and supported by the BID, it is the first of many events.
 
Steve Ward, owner, St Giles Cheese said: “This group just went ahead with a simple but effective idea to get more people to spend money and as a small business I think that’s fantastic. We were thrilled to be chosen and that our sales were bumped up on the day. I think after three or four events it will really take off."

Northampton town centre BID is helping to promote the event (being run by not-for-profit organisation, Transition Town Northampton) on Saturday 2nd February . Participants will meet at 10.30am in Abington Street at the entrance to The Arcade before moving on to spend money in a locally owned and run shop, cafe or business.
 
Chosen businesses
If you are a chosen business you will be told in advance, but there's no need to make any special preparations - it's a fun event aimed at promoting our town centre.
 
More to come
Transition Town Northampton are hoping this will be the start of a series of cash mobs across the town and the Market Square will be one of them.

Renewal for Purple Flag
 
The BID is working as part of a town centre task force and in collaboration with Northampton Borough Council on the renewal of Northampton's Purple Flag status - the sought after accreditation for towns and cities that meet stringent standards of excellence in their evening and night time economy.
 
The renewal application will be submitted to the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) on Thursday 31st January. If successful, it will allow us to continue to promote that our town centre provides a vibrant mix of dining, entertainment and culture, while promoting the safety and wellbeing of visitors and residents.
