Summer_searle-8215Newquay’s Business Improvement District (BID) is holding its Annual General Meeting on May 20th 2015 at 6pm at The Atlantic Hotel.

The meeting is an opportunity to find out more about the work of Newquay BID and to meet the Directors. There will be presentations from the BID Manager, Eve Wooldridge and Excess Energy as well as a review of the accounts from Peter Crane & Co. This is a great way to get up to date with the achievements of the BID and to learn more about how it operates. The meeting is open to BID members and Voluntary BID members only.

Newquay BID is a not for profit limited company, governed by an elected board of directors made up of members of the BID, all working together to meet the agreed key objectives in the BID business plan.  In the last four years key milestones have been achieved including; a highly successful advertising, marketing and PR campaign which has seen extensive advertising across the London Underground, regional and national magazines and local media, and over 60 pieces of positive coverage in key target newspapers; the production and distribution of key publicity materials including Seven magazine, the Food and Drink guide and the Summer events guide;  the drawing down of over £35,000 of additional funding for Newquay; the development of footfall driving events such as the Music and Ale Festival, the Lantern Parade and the Zombie Crawl and the invaluable sponsorship support of numerous Newquay-based events such as the Fish Festival, the Carnival and the Night Surf and the development of the innovative new signage project for the town.

Chairman of the Newquay BID, Rachel Craze of Newquay Fruit Sales, says, “As a Newquay BID member, I personally want to know and understand exactly what my investment was being used for, what value it was driving back and what it was achieving in terms of growth and success for the town.  That’s why attending the Annual General Meeting is important for any member.
