In February we held our first BID Review and were really pleased with how many of our members attended the evening. Our aim was to inform you about what we have been working on since being formed in April 2018 and what exciting things we have in the pipeline. Proceedings were opened by local celebrity Denise Van Outen who has recently moved here. It was great to hear about the things she loves about Chelmsford, her favourite places to eat and shop, and what she really wants to see more of in the city.
We were also privileged to have John Lewis & Partners’ Director of Store Development and Design, Tim Harrison, deliver a fun and interesting speech about the changing face of retail – and of course the shoppers of Chelmsford’s spending habits!
We are aiming to hold a similar event annually as feedback we received suggested that BID members found the event very useful and was a great opportunity to have any questions answered and to generally find out a bit more about the BID.
