Falmouth BID AGM

FALMOUTH BID AGM 2024 TIME: 18.00pm DATE: TUESDAY 23RD JULY  VENUE: ATHERTON SUITE, FALMOUTH

The Falmouth BID extensively supports its business community, delivering a wide range of projects that have had a positive economic and social impact. Furthermore, the work hugely raises the profile of the town – so vital in a competitive marketplace, leading to investment, spend and visits. During the course of the third, five-year term which has just ended, it has – co-led the town’s proactive response during the pandemic, unveiling a raft of measures including a vaccination centre and grant-led schemes; supported the delivery of amazing events including the memorable Tall Ships, National Armed Forces Day, Tour of Britain, key annuals and new creative festivals; reached over 90m global audience with its proactive PR campaigns; achieved over 2m page views on Falmouth.co.uk, so vital for profiling businesses; leveraged over £250,000 additional funding into town projects; coordinated volunteer community cleanups and public space artworks, and more besides.

The not-for-profit BID has just one employee, so its proactive partnership with Falmouth Town Council that forms the Town Team, enables a wide delivery programme. That work has been recognised nationally with the Town Team winning the ‘UK Best Event’ for Tall Ships, ‘UK Best Partnership’ for the Town Team and Richard Wilcox, the ‘UK Inspirational Leader’ accolades at key industry awards. It then delivered the strongest mandate in the south west via a 90% YES vote at its fourth term ballot in November 2023.
