St Peters Quarter Tidy Day

Last week's Tidy Day, sponsored by McDonald's, was attended by 22 people from nine businesses in the St Peters Quarter BID area - a record turnout.

 

Rewarding such a good attendance there was media coverage from the Derby Telegraph, Radio Derby and BBC TV's East Midlands Today programme.

 

The group split into teams that helped clear up areas on Green Lane, Macklin Street,  the area behind the old Rangemoor Park hotel and the surrounding area.

 

St Peters Quarter Food and Drink offer

A number of local restaurants/cafes/takeways brought samples of their menu to St Peters Cross on Saturday, to help celebrate the BID's promotion of the Food and Drink offer in the area. Visitors and shoppers readily showed their appreciation, whilst they enjoyed a St Peters Quarter Live performance, featuring Kezia and Lily

 

Many thanks to Cafe Lavanta, Costa Coffee, CucinaNickys Lounge,Papaya Thai, Subway and the Baguette Station

 

The event was part of a campaign that featured a two page article in the Derby Telegraph, a flier and Bus Station advertising highlighting the breadth and diversity of offer within St Peters Quarter.

 

Salvation Army Cafe Opens

The Salvation Army has opened a cafe and shop in the old Lloyds Bank premises on Osmaston Road, near to the Spot, and next door to the church that was established in Derby over 130 years ago.

 

As well as the retail outlet, meeting rooms will be available for use by the local community.

 

Rebecca's scan of McDonald's offer pays dividends

Rebecca Pearson from Tesco recently downloaded the St Peters Quarter Loyalty App and scanned the McDonald's Loyalty Offer code at the recent Tidy day breakfast.

 

 Rebecca's decision was rewarded when her name was drawn for a £10 St Peters Quarter shopping voucher.

Celebrating St Peters Quarter Food and Drink offer

A two page article in Friday's DerbyTelegraph will feature the comprehensive offer provided by food and drink outlets within St Peters Quarter. This will be supported by a St Peters Quarter Live event at St Peter's Cross on Saturday that will include a variety of outlets highlighting their menu offer.

 

The initiative complements the ongoing advertising in Derby Riverlights bus station of the food and drink offer available to all who visit St Peters Quarter.

 

Corporate Community Project

SPQ logoSt Peters Quarter businesses Tesco and McDonalds will be involving their teams in a Community project, on Wednesday 29 July, helping to landscape the garden area of St Peter's Church. 

 

The project represents the start of a 12 month programme that will seek to develop the whole site into one that catches the eye of all people who visit the area.

 

The work complements the recent partnership initiative with DCC which saw the restoration of hanging flower baskets to the high street. 

 

BID included in Healthy High Street  initiative

SPQ logoSt Peters Quarter, along with Cathedral Quarter, has been successful in its application to be included in the Healthy High Street programme which is administered by Business in the Community.

 

We are one of 34 new areas included in year 2 of the scheme that seeks provide intensive support for 100 high streets over a three year period through access to business expertise and resource to help high streets realise their potential.

 

St Peters House

SPQ logoReports in the media indicate that work will commence in October to convert the 108000 sq.ft. St Peters House office building in Gower Street, St Peters Quarter into 155 luxury apartments.

 

This is the latest announcement of investment in the BID area, following on from news of the purchase of the Riverlights site;  Pep&Co set to open in the old Next premises in East Street;  a new gymnasium in Colyear Street and Subway opening in St Peters Street. 

 

Loyalty App Incentive Winner 

Linda Fitch, from Sandiacre, was the happy recipient of £50 in St Peters Quarter vouchers after her name was pulled out in the draw of all shoppers who  scanned a Loyalty deal during June.

 

Linda scanned the till side code at Argento and chose to spend her winnings at the jewellers, which is located in St Peters Street.

 

With over 2100 Loyalty App holders registered,  BID businesses have a valuable medium for promoting their offers. If you have not yet taken advantage of this free service please speak to the St Peters Quarter ranger team or email the BID office.
