Northwich will come alive with colour and vibrancy over the next few months thanks to a series of investments made by the Northwich Business Improvement District (BID).
As part of its ‘Greener and Cleaner’ theme, Northwich BID will be funding further floral displays around the town, having facilitated the installation of eye-catching bunting and contributing to specific projects with schools, businesses and community groups.
These initiatives and investments tie in with the RHS Britain In Bloom competition which takes place in July and August, with Northwich entering both the BID and Large Town Centre categories.
Northwich BID officer Mark Henshaw is looking forward to seeing all of these projects come to fruition and hopes both the people of the town and visitors enjoy the colourful additions to the town centre.
Mark said: “Throughout spring and summer we are investing in new planters and railing baskets on Dane Street, the corner of Venables Road and throughout the centre of Northwich too – beautiful hanging baskets will also return.”
He added: “The BID are also contributing towards the town mayor’s arts project that local school children have designed which will be displayed throughout the subways in Northwich.
“Creating, developing and fostering a greener and cleaner Northwich, which is pleasing on the eye and welcoming to visitors, is one of our key objectives and we’ve had some really positive feedback regarding planters, hanging and railing baskets that have been cultivated over the last couple of years.”
On top of this, Northwich BID is currently developing a plan for Britain in Bloom over the summer, which will see them working closely with Northwich Town Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council, businesses and community groups to deliver a competitive entry for the town.
BID Manager Jane Hough commented: “The BID has been hosting meetings since the turn of the year in preparation for this summer’s competition and we’re excited to be involved with a national event of this nature.
“We can’t wait to discuss ideas and initiatives with businesses and our many passionate community groups to give Northwich a colourful, vibrant edge and make the town truly In Bloom.”
