Altrincham BID

Case Studies

Sacha Lord

Night-time Economy Advisor for Greater Manchester

“The success in securing the Purple Flag accreditation can be attributed to the dedicated efforts of the town’s night-time economy businesses, the Altrincham Purple Flag Working Group, and the Altrincham BID team who led on the application. This is a fantastic achievement for Altrincham. Congratulations to Altrincham!”.

James Singleton

Venue Manager, Everyman

“We see a huge benefit to sponsoring and hosting the start of town trails. It brings new and returning visitors to the Everyman and gives us an opportunity to promote the cinema to a wider audience. It’s fantastic to see so many children enjoying this free entertainment during the school holidays and we love being part of the Altrincham community”.

Rhiannah Balcombe

Underfound

“We really enjoyed taking part in the RHS Window Competition. The benefits to the business included increased exposure with lots of potential customers coming to look at our window, and popping in to find out more, as well as through the People’s Choice Competition on Facebook. As a relatively new business to the town getting involved in Altrincham BID events has really supported our growth”.

Gareth Wilkins

Head of Retail Operations Bruntwood

“We were delighted to sponsor the Lantern Parade again this year as we recognise that community events like this one are important for the town, not only bringing footfall but also positive PR. What the BID has achieved generally in supporting the town and its growth is remarkable”.

Business Name: Full Circle Funerals Partners

Service: New Business Support

"Mandy, Kate and Jo have been simply fantastic in terms of the welcome and support they’ve given to us since we established our new service – Full Circle Funerals Partners in Altrincham. Not only are they just the loveliest people, they are also extremely knowledgeable and expert in what they do. They were kind enough to attend and promote our Opening Event, they have supported us on various networking events and have been a poised, creative font of knowledge and marketing on all things local! Their weekly round up and Monthly Newsletter has been a brilliant resource. If you want to know what’s going on in Altrincham, the website and social media posts are fantastic. We feel so lucky to be living and working in such a vibrant and supportive local community and Altrincham BID and Visit Altrincham are a massive part of that – a big big thank you from us!"

Hannah Norburn

Business Name: Project You

Service: Marketing and PR Support

"Following on from the BID’s monthly newsletter we responded to the shout-out to be involved in the Altrincham 10k. As a result we were able to raise our business profile considerably by having a stall in the event village and leading the warm-up for the runners. We had a record day in terms of engagement on Instagram. We would encourage all businesses to read the newsletter and take advantage of the brilliant opportunities made available."

Jennifer Jameson

Business Name: Jameson and Partners

Service: Deep Cleaning

"We are incredibly fortunate in Altrincham to have a rolling programme of deep cleaning provided by the BID. We look forward to seeing the results each year as it makes our part of the town look so fabulous. Our customers always comment on how incredibly smart, not only our business front, but the Downs in general looks after this service has been delivered."

Anthony Prophet

Business Name: The Green Room

Service: Cost Saving Scheme

"We’re over the moon with the savings we were able to make through the BID’s cost savings scheme. Over the duration of our contracts the consultant was able to achieve a combined saving of around £10k for us across utilities and telecom services. We’re saving the cost of our BID levy, and more, many times over and would definitely recommend the scheme to other BID businesses. If you don’t engage with the cost saving scheme you are almost certainly losing money."
