Connected and Represented

  • Five year budget £120,705

Networking events and face-to-face contact will remain at the heart of Twickenham’s approach to life, but digital media is the vehicle by which Twickenham will grow and thrive in the next decade. The BID is taking the town’s rich and colourful history, and reviving its spirit through online channels. Through social media, email communication and a community e-commerce platform, the message is to invest in local, and word is spreading.

Twickenham Signpost

We are committed to actively seeking additional public funds, grants and sponsorship which will allow the BID to supplement and finance additional projects which are decided on by the Board, to the levy payers benefit.

It is important that Twickenham is seen as a shopping town that offers current and potential customers a clean, safe and family friendly environment to visit. I am supporting the BID because of their efforts with the beautiful hanging baskets, parking offers and business support using Instagram, which has made a positive impact on my business and the high street.

As a small local charity, starting a business was pretty daunting so it was good to be welcomed to the BID. The People Hive, a high street shop with a social enterprise twist, offers retail space to local artists in the community. All profits the charity RHLT makes are ploughed back in to supporting people with learning disabilities in and around the borough of Richmond Upon Thames. The BID has offered us support in terms of providing information, and putting us in touch with people that can support us as well as welcoming us to the local Twickenham Community.
