Businesses vote for Hamilton Our Town (BID) to continue for new term:
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to vote at our renewal ballot. Voting closed 6th October and the count was declared last Friday with the largest ever turnout recorded since the BID area was created in 2012. Alongside recording the largest ever turnout, we also received the highest number of votes in favour, 79% yes and the highest by RV in the 10 years since the BID was created representing overwhelming support. None of this would have been possible without the help and support from the Hamilton business community. We will now set to work delivering on the new business plan starting with a set of 3 festive events starting on 26th November.
Festive events 2022:
26th November – Light Switch On
3rd December – Reindeer Parade
17th December – Christmas Gala
This year we will be delivering 3 festive events following the successful market format started in 2021. If any business would like to take a stall please complete the link to apply https://forms.gle/Uzd4NpqjGhuJuiSg7
This year we will return with the hugely successful Hamilton Hero Awards to determine who will switch on the town’s Christmas lights. The switch on will take place on Nov 26th as part of the festive market with a large stage planned for the top cross area. A secondary performance area will be located within the Regent centre and at the bandstand. Unfortunately, due to safety reasons have not been given permission to carryout activity in the New Cross centre. The market will start at 10am and finish at 6pm, therefore we are encouraging businesses to stay open until 6pm on the 26th Nov to capitalise on the additional footfall. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch with me at email@example.com. We are also delighted to be receiving support to deliver these events from various partners in the area. If your business would like to get involved please get in touch.
We are now working on these events following the positive vote and will keep you up to date with plans to ensure that as many businesses as possible capitalise on the footfall and marketing opportunities. Again, if you would like to get involved in anyway please get in touch!
