I was asked to become a member of the Coastal BID board to represent Westbourne, after my predecessor took maternity leave. My role is to represent Westbourne’s retail area, predominately along Poole Road, Seymoor Roa and Westbourne Arcade and to liaise with fellow traders and levy payers to acertain what they would like to see the BID do to promote the Westbourne area as a shopping destination. Having set up, established and successfully expanded many different retail businesses over the past thirty odd years both in the U.K. and overseas, I have gained valuable insight as to what consumers are looking for in their retail experience, which is more important than ever due to the rapid expansion of online retailing. I hope to be able to assist the fantastic Coastal BID team to organise some amazing entertaining events in Westbourne.
