York BID Launches April 2016

 

York Greeters Scheme Launched

 A new scheme has been launched in York to help provide a friendly welcome to visitors. York Greeters will be based at the railway station, to offer visitors, shoppers and visiting business people advice or directions. The initiative was set up by the York Business Improvement District (York Bid), and will see a team of four Greeters in the city centre.

In April earlier this year we saw York BID's new executive director take up post in a role which will oversee how £800,000 a year is spent on improving the city centre's economy. Andrew Lowson has been appointed to lead York's first Business Improvement District, which was voted in by city centre businesses in November last year. Mr Lowson brings with him to the role experience as the former managing director of York-based teepee-style marquee company PapaKata, as well as previous roles with Halcrow, Yorkshire Forward and Newcastle Airport.

 
This is a business-led initiative that will allow us all to work together to create a more attractive and prosperous city centre
