CQ Business Life Magazine- FREE promotional opportunity for professional services

The BID is now producing a CQ Life magazine dedicated to Professional Services.

Branded as CQ Business Life, the full colour magazine will be distributed with Agenda magazine’s autumn issue, available from early September.  

The focus is editorial rather than advertising – featuring news from businesses, advice and comment to ensure that we interest the readers with information rather than switching them off by just going for the hard advertising sell.

Sarah Jenkin Jones, the BID’s PR consultant will coordinate the collation of the copy and editorial. Please can you contact Sarah to register your interest in inclusion and to discuss subject matter by close of play on Monday 22 May 2017. As space is limited, inclusion will be on a first come first serve basis.

The deadline for copy will then be a couple of weeks later.  Sarah can be contacted on 01332 515102/07951945665 or at sarah@jjpublicrelations.co.uk.  Inclusion is FREE to all CQ Professional service businesses.

Shop frontage improvement scheme given go-ahead on Victoria Street

Planning permission has been granted by Derby City Council for shops and their frontages on Victoria Street to be refurbished.

Clowes Developments submitted plans to upgrade the Grade II listed Royal buildings earlier this year, part of which will look at restoring the facades of the building to their original design. 

The plans also include amendments to vacant units making them easier to rent out and more desirable to new tenants.

'Derby Store Wars' event comes to Cathedral Quarter - Thursday 1 June

As part of National Volunteers Week 2017, Business in the Community in partnership with Community Action Derby has organised a 'Derby Store Wars' event to take place on Thursday 1 June.

 

The Store Wars concept sees local businesses or organisations ‘take over’ a charity shop for the day in order to raise as much money as possible for the charities concerned. Those in the Cathedral Quarter taking part include British Heart Foundation on Cornmarket, Padley Group on Sadler Gate and Lighthouse on Albert Street. 

This first Derby Store Wars will be a pilot and, if successful, will become an annual event to help raise money for charities in Derby.
