St Peters Quarter BID News Update issue 158

E-newsbulletin

Issue No 158         June 2015

 

Withdrawal of live CCTV monitoring in the city centre

SPQ logoAs you may be aware, Derby City Council have withdrawn all funding for the live monitoring of CCTV in the city centre. 

 

Both the Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter BID's are very concerned about the implications of this and the potential vulnerability of staff, shoppers, workers and businesses.

 

Our BID Rangers will assist where they can, but they do not have any enforcement powers and  we recommend that any issue of crime or antisocial behaviour is reported to the Police on 101 or 999 (if an emergency). This will also help the police gain a true picture of incidents that arise.

 

The St Peters Quarter BID, via sponsorship from NCP, G Wathall & Son and Central United Reformed Church, has funded street champion radios across the area; if your business does not have a Store Watch radio, you may liaise with your nearest Street Champion who will report issues via these shared radios.


 Current Street Champions are as follows:


 Cape and Cowl shop, Green Lane

Jeffery Jones, St Peters Churchyard

G Wathall & Son, Macklin Street

Greenwoods Menswear, St Peters Street

Simply Eat, East Street


 If you would like to nominate yourself as a street champion, please let us know via email or on 01332 419050 and we can either reallocate or obtain additional radios.

 

New Floral Displays in St Peters Quarter

St Peters Quarter BID has teamed up with Derby City Council to install more than 40 colourful hanging baskets along the pedestrianised 'spine' of the city centre. 

 

The BID has contributed £2,250 towards the project which will see hanging baskets erected on the Market Place and along Iron Gate.

 

 

 

July Business and Retail meeting - Change of date

SPQ logoThe next Business and Retail in the City meeting will be held on Thursday 9 July at 9.30am at the BID offices, 10 Iron Gate. This is a week later than normal so please make a note in your diaries. 

 

Keep yourself up to date and be involved in issues which affect your business. This meeting includes a footfall and retail sales overview, discussion about forthcoming activities and an update from the Police

 

This is specifically for Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter businesses and meetings take place on the first Thursday of the month.

 

St Peters Quarter Loyalty Incentive rewards another customer

Melanie Butler, of Derby, is the latest customer to win £50 in St Peters Quarter shopping vouchers under the St Peters Quarter Loyalty App customer incentive scheme. Melanie scanned the Shooz4Kidz offer code during May and her name was picked out in the monthly draw; she will be spending her vouchers at Waterstones.

 

All businesses that promote an offer through the Loyalty scheme are encouraged to mention the Loyalty scheme to every customer, and ensure that the till side QR code is prominently displayed. It could be your customer who wins the June prize.

 

Feedback from Loyalty App holders is that they view the product as something that enhances customer service: details of 50 offers throughout the area available to see at a glance,plus immediate updates and an interactive map facility.

Information on grants and support for businesses

Street Entertainment in St Peters Quarter

A growing number of local acts are approaching the BID to see if they can be included in the regular street entertainment that takes place in the area on most Saturdays.
