Go Grantham, the company investigating whether businesses of Grantham want the town to become a Business Improvement District (BID), are hosting a series of informative and interactive events.
These are designed to explain more about what a BID is, how they believe it will help our town, and most importantly, to get feedback from local business owners as to whether they want Go Grantham to move forward with the development of a BID.
“We are currently at the feasibility stage of the process” says Stuart Pigram, Sales Director of The Trust Insurance Group and currently Chair of both Grantham Business Club and Go Grantham. “We are asking the businesses of Grantham, ‘Do you have an appetite for a BID?’ If the answer is ‘yes’, we will move to the next stage and develop a BID proposal which businesses will get to vote on in about 12 months’ time.”
The events are being held at the following times and venues across the town, designed to make at least one event accessible for all businesses:
* Wednesday, May 13 at 6pm at Jubilee Church Life Centre, 1-5 London Road, Grantham, NG31 6EY - Retailer Focus
* Wednesday, May 20 at 4pm at Eden House Hotel, 130 North Parade, Grantham, NG31 8AU - Professional Services / B2B focus
* Thursday, May 21 at 4pm at Eden House Hotel, 130 North Parade, Grantham, NG31 8AU - Professional Services / Hospitality Focus
* Thursday, June 4 at 4pm at Eden House Hotel, 130 North Parade, Grantham, NG31 8AU - Manufacturing / Warehouse Focus
Whilst the events have been planned to focus on particular sectors, businesses are welcome to attend whichever one suits their diary best. Please visit www.go-grantham.co.uk to find out more and book on to one of the events.
“I hope as many businesses as possible will come to one of our events to learn more and have their say. We really want to hear as many points of view as possible about what businesses would like to see improved about our town. Let’s talk,” added BID Manager, Amber Kitching.
