As we move into 2015, we can look back on a successful Christmas trading period across the district. Shopper footfall increased in Canterbury, as did city centre car park, Park & Ride, bus and train usage, while Whitstable’s Christmas parade and Herne Bay's Christmas lights switch-on drew the crowds.
This year will see the Canterbury BID (Business Improvement District) moving ahead with plans for BID ambassadors, floral displays and working groups on digital strategy, transport and access, and destination management. Another successful initiative, the 'MyCanterbury' App, now has 20,000 users, so if you haven't already tapped in to this fast growing business tool, now's the time to visit canterbury.mytownmycity.co.uk to find out about the promotional opportunities.
