Our new magazine - get involved
"Following on from last week's e-bulletin here's a reminder about our new publication. As part of our change in strategy we are working on a brand new promotional magazine and it's set to land in 30,000 targeted homes and businesses this summer.
"Please get involved and make sure your town centre business is included in this A5 16-page (more if demand is there) publication which will be packed with cut out voucher offers and discounts for town centre businesses. We will also include BID updates, what's on details and other editorial pages."
Rob Purdie, BID Executive Director
So, to get involved please email us HERE with your ideas for an offer - we need your business name, promotion details and the offer expiry date. The deadline is Friday 29th June.
