Altrincham BID has announced the appointment of three new board members.
In November the BID won a second five-year mandate to represent businesses in the town centre and to continue to support the economic growth of the town.
Andrea George, Director of Town Centres & Consumer Brands for Bruntwood Works, has now joined the board alongside Matt Agass (pictured above right), owner of Fixx Salons and founder of Yogberries, and Christopher Taylor, owner of Gran T’s Coffee House.
Current BID members include a diverse range of businesses including Altrincham Market, Informed Solutions, Vine Hotels, Altrincham Interchange, The Everyman Cinema and Total Fitness.
The BID delivers business support alongside a programme of footfall-driving public events, greening and cleaning initiatives and the generation of positive PR for Altrincham, which this year was voted Best Place to Live in the North West 2021 by The Sunday Times.
Andrea George, Director of Town Centres & Consumer Brands for Bruntwood Works, said “Altrincham BID is a fantastic organisation doing a really important job in promoting the town, their support has been one of the reasons Bruntwood Works chose to increase their investment in the town, adding the Stamford Quarter in a joint venture with Trafford Council, to our existing portfolio.
“I’m proud to be joining the board and look forward to working with the other directors who I know are passionate about the town.”
Christopher Taylor, Gran T’s Coffee House, said he had “witnessed first-hand the amazing contributions they have made and continue to make to Altrincham… I truly feel that the town’s businesses are stronger when they work together, and the BID is the perfect vehicle to make this happen”.
Ewen Miller, MD of Calderpeel Architects and Chair of Altrincham BID Board, said the trio brought “considerable experience, energy and enthusiasm to Altrincham”.
