BID Christmas Plans

St Peters Quarter BID has provided eye-catching Christmas cross street lights in East Street and Albion Street in 2012 and 2013, and will do so again in 2014.

 

Last year the BID also greatly extended the number of building frontage Christmas trees as well as additional lighting in areas such as St Peters Churchyard. The initiative will be repeated and extended where this is possible.

 

The BID is also negotiating with key partners to provide additional benefits, as requested by the Area Groups, and these plans, together with details of the Christmas promotional campaign will be advised next month.

 

Celebration Entertainment

Rock and pop music, belly dancing and even martial arts will bring the streets of St Peters Quarter alive on Saturday 13 September between 11am and 3pm with an entertainment extravaganza organised by the BID.

 

St Peters Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) is organising a day of street entertainment at the newly-refurbished St Peters Cross and elsewhere in St Peters Quarter to celebrate the completion of work to create a much needed performance space.

 

More information to follow.  Leaflets and posters will be distributed for local businesses to display.  Please ensure you give this a high profile to encourage your customers into the area on that day.

 

Raising The Profile of Professional Services 

Nicky Collett, St Peters Quarter Board member and director of Green Lane-based City Properties was featured on BBC Radio Derby this morning highlighting the growing stature of the BID area as a city centre office location.

 

As part of the BID's marketing and PR to promote and raise the profile of the area, a press release was prepared about the success of the Town House in Green Lane and The Old Courthouse in St Peter's Churchyard.

 

This is due to be featured by other local and regional media and BBC Radio Derby interviewed Nicky as part of their feature on the growth of professional properties in St Peters Quarter.

 

A copy of the press release can be seen on the news section of the website.

 

Crime Consultation

derbyshire police logoThe BID works to improve the flow of intelligence from businesses to Derbyshire Police in order to aid the reduction of crime and anti social behaviour in the area.

 

 The consultation and engagement programme entitled "Over to you..." aims to gauge the views of businesses, organisations and members of the public on policing in their area.

 

This will be part of the next St Peters Quarter Safer Neighbourhood Day on October 23 but, in the meantime, you can participate in an online survey to share your views with the Police Crime Commissioner's office and Derbyshire Constabulary.
