Great British High Street Awards update

Following the Cathedral Quarter's success at the Great British High Street awards in December, the BID has now been presented with a cast iron plaque commemorating its success in being named the UK's 'Best City Location'.

 

The BID would like to hear from businesses as to where they would like to see the plaque displayed - this would need to be in an area of high visibility and subject to planning and conservation regulations. If you have a suggestion(s) please contact the BID office on 01332 419053 or via email.

 

Last month businesses voted overwhelmingly to spend the prize money received on a

co-ordinated promotion and advertising campaign to promote the area and the award. Further information on this will be provided in due course.
