“The Broadmead Business Improvement District (BID) is so fully integrated into our working lives, helping to maintain our competitive edge, that we can forget it is something we could all lose.
“As the current BID comes to an end in October 2018, now is the time to consider what life would be like without the Broadmead BID.
“Picture our streets if there was no BID funding to clean them to a standard where they seamlessly blend with the neighbouring Cabot Circus and The Galleries.
“Consider not being able to maintain and replace our street furniture.
“Imagine if there was no money for Christmas lights, marketing or events.
“Visualise not having a Broadmead management team to call on for all the countless issues that arise in our working lives.
“Whatever challenges Broadmead faces, having this vital resource behind us will make a difference. Through the BID, the Broadmead retailers have achieved so much together – there is a lot for us all to lose if businesses do not vote for another five year BID.
“Please vote YES in September 2018.”
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
