Camborne businesses have just two weeks left to vote on whether they want to continue as a BID – a Business Improvement District.
The ballot closes at 5pm on Thursday, December 1st. The result will be announced on Friday, December 2nd.
Newquay, Truro and St Ives have already voted to retain BID status for a second term. If Camborne also votes to take advantage of the opportunity, the town businesses will be able to build on the success of Camborne Can Do, continue to work together as Camborne Can Do More, helping each other and the town to improve, get noticed and become more prosperous.
Steve Hicklin is the Cornwall and South Devon Area Manager for Premier Inn, the first of two major hotel chains to open in Camborne during BID Camborne’s first five years. He will be voting ‘Yes’ for a second term of BID Camborne.
Steve said: I am very supportive of BID Camborne. It works. I’m pleased to see the increased numbers of visitors to the area. We have built a 45 bedroom extension to our Camborne hotel, which is opening soon and I am sure we will see a continued increase in visitor numbers.”
George Le Hunte, BID Camborne Chairman, said: “If BID status is lost it will never return. Without BID status the town will no longer be promoted and there will be no organised Christmas celebration in Camborne. We have to work together because no one else is going to step in and take over.”
