Time has largely been devoted to final Dickensian planning. However, Janna has made a start in getting the new BID Welcome Packs out to a few new businesses. It is wonderful that we have had quite a number of newcomers over the past few months.
Lighting: We are aware there are problems with the lights on Pepper Street, Market and King Streets. The contractors have been out this morning looking at the issues so we hope they will soon be resolved. However, we will update as soon as they report back.
Dickensian Competitions: Using this link, please kindly let us know if you intend to enter the competitions so that we can ensure we visit you on judging day. https://jannasanders.typeform.com/to/pTsM3k?fbclid=IwAR1zbcr2fDMSnDYp4Pz4gpAwzAv0x0trWma9jeuHOgXYa9qIy_iAniXTVWs
Dickensian Park & Ride: the issues have been resolved by contracting Stagecoach to provide the service. A service will run every 10 minutes between 5:00pm and 9:13pm from the bus stop in Morrisons Car Park to the Bedford Hotel.
Christmas Trees: all trees that have been requested have been delivered. Please do let us know if there are any premises who would still like one as we will do our utmost to arrange this.
Signage: updated signage is ready to go but we have been hampered this week by the bad weather. In the interests of not having to take the entire sign down at significant cost, we have opted to place waterproof stickers over the changes ourselves until such time as we cannot avoid needing the update the entire sign. Regardless, this will all be done prior to Dickensian.
