A Word from the Chair

 

May was the month of our AGM and it as great to share some of our successes from the last 12 months as well as some of our plans for this year coming.

Some of our highlights have been in Communication; streamlining our social media platforms, producing a quarterly newsletter to keep you updated and re-launching the Discover Penrith website.

In other areas, we have forged some great relationships over this last year with key stakeholders and organisations in town.

But with the highlights, have also come with some difficult decisions over the year. We discontinued the Penrith Pound and the town centre WiFi was switched off. Both had associated costs and limitations which we agreed was not beneficial to your levy.

Going in to June and Penrith in Bloom has started to look ‘bloomin’ marvelous! The hanging baskets have gone up and the large planters are just about ready to be sited around town. You can still get involved by purchasing a hanging basket and show your pride in Penrith! Just contact the office on the regular email. A huge thanks goes to Phil and Rob for putting them all up around town.

Making Penrith Sparkle (Christmas) plans are well underway. The provider has been chosen and we will be working closely with them over this year to deliver a fantastic lighting scheme.

Looking ahead we will be meeting with Sainsbury’s (New Squares) and Winter Droving (Eden Arts) in June and we’ll update you next month.

Happy trading for June!
