Good Media Coverage for the BID

SPQ logoThe weekend press included an article on the upcoming St Peters Quarter Tidy Day - Wednesday 29 October - that featured the businesses set to be involved and also described the strategy behind this BID initiative.

 

The latest act under the BID's ongoing programme to bring entertainment to the streets of St Peters Quarter - Musical Ruth - was interviewed by Radio Derby on Saturday, featured on Facebook and was picked up by the Derby Telegraph on their website and in Monday's edition of the paper.

 

Look out for November's edition of Derbyshire Life, due out later this week, which contains an article on St Peters Quarter.

 

Christmas in Derby leaflet

This year the St Peters Quarter has teamed up with Cathedral Quarter to produce a leaflet showcasing the variety of entertainment and events taking place in the city this Christmas.

 

There will be a huge range of free entertainment, markets, concerts and church services on offer plus theatre performances, films and exhibitions. There is also the opportunity to win £500 worth of shopping vouchers!

 

The leaflet will be distributed with the Derby Telegraph, in school book bags and through art boxes in locations throughout the city. Businesses will also have access to copies and our Rangers will be on hand to distribute to visitors. 

 

 

Christmas Lunch on Jesus - 23 December 2014

Now an established event, the church need volunteers for packing, and delivering Christmas Lunch boxes to the needy on December 23rd.  Donations also welcome. 

 

A number of St Peters Quarter businesses have participated in the event in recent years, and if you would like to pledge support please contact Lesley Kitson  on 360790 or by email

 

New Vinyl for Greenwoods Menswear

St Peters Quarter BID aims to promote the identity of the area in a variety of ways and one method that is taking off is the usage of window vinyl in business windows. Following on from McDonalds and Tesco, Greenwoods Menswear have now taken delivery of the attractive signage shown in the image.


 The design can be tailored to the needs of each business, in this case incorporating the Greenwoods logo and that for 1860 - their successful suit hire arm. Backgrounds are available in one of the four colours agreed in the BID brand guidelines as featured on the front of the St Peters Quarter mini guide. Production and fitment costs are met by the BID.


The next business taking delivery of its window vinyl is Bon Marche, and if your business would be interested in this initiative please contact Ian Hinds on 01332 419050 or email

 

Derby Coaching for Success

As a follow up to the recent event at St Peters Centre, held as part of the BID's programme to assist businesses in understanding  grant and support aid schemes that are currently available, a summary of support that can be accessed via Derby Coaching for Success is now available .  Please see their website for full details.

Businesses Join Forces To Spruce Up Area

A wide range of business from across Derby’s St Peters Quarter area of Derby city centre will join together on Wednesday October 29 for their latest collective tidy up of their streets.
The initiative is part of the Business Improvement District’s objective to improve the visitor experience in the area.
Representatives from businesses including Costa Coffee, Barclays, Tesco, NCP, McDonalds and Dance Tek will join the area’s Rangers and Derby City Council’s Street Pride team for an early morning litter pick, organised by the St Peters Quarter BID and sponsored by McDonalds in St Peter’s Street.
Armed with litter pickers, gloves and bags, they will meet at 7am and split into groups to collect rubbish. 
Volunteers will also be tidying up the area at the bottom of Green Lane which has been refurbished with giant planters.
St Peters Quarter is the city centre’s retail core between the Cathedral Quarter and Intu Derby shopping centre including the busy ‘high street’ area of St Peter’s Street and East Street, The Spot, River Lights and the ‘Lanes’ area from Green Lane to Babington Lane.


Helen Wathall, a member of St Peters Quarter Board which drives forward activities under the area’s Business Improvement District (BID) status said: “Keeping the streets in St Peters Quarter clean and tidy is an important part of our overall aim to improve the visitor experience and attract more people back into the area.
“The Business Tidy Up initiatives help to raise the profile of what every business should be doing to contribute to this overall aim and I am delighted that businesses are once again embracing the opportunities to work together through the BID for the good both of their own operations and of the area as a whole.”
Street Pride area manager Simon Aitken added: “Working closely with St Peters Quarter on initiatives such as this enables my team to better understand the needs of the business community. In turn, we can feedback on how businesses can take simple, but effective measures to keep our city tidier.”
