Mansfield BID News for followers and partners,
Last year was a good year for our town centre, with new shops and businesses opening their doors, a variety of events taking place, and a significant increase in footfall. Despite the challenges faced by businesses due to increased fuel costs and the cost-of-living crisis, the resilience and dedication of the community helped make the town successful in many ways.
This year, we plan to build on that success and continue to provide even more reasons to visit, shop, and support our town. We also want to encourage people from across Nottinghamshire to give our town centre a try. To kick things off, we have a line-up of exciting events planned for the year, which will provide entertainment for all ages. These events will be free to attend and will help establish our Mansfield town centre as the events capital of Nottinghamshire. Keep an eye out for more details in the next edition of the News Journal and on our Mansfield BID and Mansfield District Council websites and social media platforms.
We will also be further supporting businesses within the town by holding a business breakfast each month for the four categories of business in the town, Retail, Health and Beauty, Professional Services and Hospitality. These meetings will provide an opportunity for businesses to talk to experts and senior members of the council and raise any concerns they may have.
As we know that the current cost of living crisis affects how you shop and where, we will be doing our best this year to ensure our town centre can offer you a good shopping experience. We will be working with the council to reopen shops in the less central streets of the town centre, and we will continue to support local businesses and give them every opportunity to succeed.
We will also continue to work closely with Notts Police and other uniformed services to ensure that our town centre is a safe place to visit, day or night.
In conclusion, we look forward to seeing you in the town centre this year and wish all of our followers the very best for 2023. Let’s make it a great one!
