Whilst BID Manager Eve Wooldridge has been on maternity leave, the BID management role has been taken on by Emilie Calhaem, who has been living near Newquay in part due to her husband’s role down at RNAS Culdrose. As his job requires them to move again, Emilie is giving up her role at the BID, which is therefore looking for someone to help take over the projects that Emilie has been working on.
These projects include the town’s innovative signage and way-finding scheme which has now gone to the design phase. The BID has had an extremely successful year so far, having just released the latest issue of Seven magazine on the largest print run to date; promoted a popular springtime free car-parking initiative; run a whole host of Easter activities including a ‘Big Ticket Giveaway’ with Pirate FM; and finalised a jam-packed events calendar including Art8, the Nightsurf contest, Newquay Carnival, beach cricket and Newquay Fish Festival, which will include bringing Swamp Circus’s The Wave to the Killacourt over two days to help attract the family audience.
Talking about her time with the BID, Emilie Calhaem said: “It has been great to be so closely involved in helping to promote the town over the last nine months. I have really felt like part of the community and discovered many wonderful and fantastic things about Newquay that will keep me coming back and visiting whenever I can. I really hope that the important work we have started with the signage project will come to fruition and thus create a lasting legacy for the town and its visitors.”
Newquay BID will be advertising for this role over the next few weeks and interested parties can request further information from firstname.lastname@example.org.
