Emergency Services Community Day Support
As part of the BID's partnership working we attend meetings for Both operation Safari and Erase, both designed to reduce Anti-social behaviour and make York a more family freindly place. In 2019 3 community days were held in an effort to combat this and engage young people with York's emergency services. In each instance BID Street Rangers have been in attendance but tthe BID has also worked with partners to bring in another family freindly element to attract families to York.
On Saturday 6th April The BID worked with the Barbican and Dinoworld live to bring Tybalt the T-rex to St Helens Square much to the crowds amazement.
On Saturday 20th July The BID worked with The Grand Opera House and Shrek the Musical to Bring Princess Fiona, Pinocchio, Donkey, Peter Pan and The Sugar Plum Fairy to King and Queen's Staiths on a community day focused around river safety.
On Saturday December 14th the BID worked with York's Chocolate Story and the North Pole to bring Santa and one of his helpers to the Christmas community day held around Coney Street, Duncombe Place, Blake Street and St Helen's Square.
