We have achieved everything that businesses asked us to which was in the original Business Plan and more besides. Since 2010 we have won 2 national awards for 2 of the projects and are currently shortlisted for 2 more as well. Worcester now has more events, is better promoted, is a safe city, easier to navigate, is easier to pay and stay longer, and businesses have a collective voice to lobby and reduce overheads. This is because of the Worcester BID’s formation and businesses getting involved. Please vote YES to BID2 otherwise many of these as well as the new projects you wanted for the next 5 years will go or will never happen”
