A message from St Ives Business Improvement District (BID) manager Helen Tripconey, pictured above (right) with BID chairman Alex Ward

St Ives BID is here to support the town and its businesses over the coming days, weeks, and months.

We are very conscious of the challenges that businesses are facing with the Coronavirus pandemic and we are working hard to support businesses, as well as putting plans in place to help promote St Ives and its businesses as the country recovers.

To that end, we are asking for the businesses of St Ives to share as much information as they possibly can with us.

We want to hear about how your business has been adversely affected by Covid-19, about any of the issues you have been facing, and the support you may need, which we, in turn, can communicate to our partners locally, to British BIDs, and to government.

We also want to hear about all the positive things that you business, and the St Ives business community, is doing to support our town during this crisis.

We at BID are also focusing on different areas where we can help our businesses, and if you have any suggestions, then please share them with us.

Contact me via e-mail at helen@stivesbid.co.uk or by phone on 01736 792121 to share any information and help St Ives work together during such difficult times.
