Window Vinyls installed on vacant CQ properties

Last week saw the installation of the first of three sets of window vinyls, on the old Bay Tree unit on Sadler Gate. Work on the two remaining sites where permission to install has been obtained should be completed over the next two weeks. 


 The BID continues to work with Marketing Derby to attract new businesses into these units

 

Promoting Derby as a Purple Flag Destination

Purple FlagIn 2013 Derby was awarded Purple Flag status. Purple Flag is an international accreditation scheme which recognises excellence in managing the evening and night-time economy. Cities in receipt of this award benefit from more visitors, lower crime and anti-social behaviour and improved perceptions. 

 

As part of the promotion of Purple Flag, Derby City Council would like your business to help 'fly the flag'. There are various discreet merchandise on offer to help businesses do this, such as menu stickers, lapel pins, window vinyls and Perspex plaques. 

 

If you would like to place some branding in your establishment to draw attention to the fact that Derby is a Purple Flag city, then please contact Amy Grainger -Matthews of Derby City Council on 01332 646046.
