Plans are taking shape for the rest of 2015 as the Westbourne Traders Association take full advantage of the resources available from the Coastal BID to promote Westbourne Village as a unique shopping and services destination.
Every month in 2015 a destination campaign or PR activity will be delivered to promote Westbourne. The plans are ambitious and rely on your support. Elements will only happen if you and your business take advantage of the opportunities created.
March 2015 – Random Acts of Kindness
Get involved and do something nice for someone. Just tell us about your acts of kindness or nominate someone on the Discover Westbourne Facebook page. At the end of the month there will be two prizes, an iPad Mini 2 in an Under 18 category and £250 of Westbourne Shopping vouchers in the over 18’s category.
April 2015 – Look Good, Feel Good
Fashion, Beauty and Health businesses will be able to take advantage of a showcase week at the end of April when we will be promoting Westbourne as a one-stop destination to get set for the summer. We already have the support of the Bournemouth Echo and Society Magazine to promote the event and we will also be utilising our growing on-line presence.
June 2015 – Fab’ Food & Dining
It is the turn of the food and drink businesses to take advantage of a showcase week in the run up to the Bournemouth Food Festival. Plans are at an early stage but this event will concentrate on promoting the amazing range of food, cafes and dining that we have in Westbourne.
July 2015 – Westbourne Summer Festival
Many of you have asked for an event to attract tourists to Westbourne so we are planning a weeklong event at the beginning of the summer holidays. More updates very soon.
