Our Colchester


News and updates from the BID to raise awareness of what is going on and the work 'Our Colchester' are doing around the town.

Our Colchester has recruited a new Street Ambassador called Maz. If you spot the three of them around the town, stop and say hello. 

Our Street Ambassadors have been communicating with businesses and informing them of what the BID has planned, including upcoming campaigns. If you would like more information about the BID or what the Street Ambassadors can support with, please let us know

Our Mother's Day campaign is well on its way and will launch on the 15th March. We are grateful for all of the wonderful prizes that have been donated so far with 20 businesses getting involved and we hope for this success across our future campaigns. All businesses who have participated will be mentioned on social media and our website.

Our Friend of the BID scheme has now launched! For more information please click here to view our leaflet. A Friend of the BID will receive benefits such as Place Management and Place Marketing to support your business. If you know of any business in the town centre who is not currently a BID member and would like to be, pass on this newsletter and email us at hello@ourcolchester.co.uk.



Easter is fast approaching and so is our campaign. This year we will be running a trail around the town centre to find our Easter Egg 'Humpty Dumpty'. The famous egg will hide within businesses around the town for families, friends and explorers to find. If you would like your business to be one of our hiding locations, please get in contact so we can give you more details.


We are launching a new consumer website very soon! Our aim is to demonstrate Colchester town centre as the preferred location to those who live within a 25-mile radius of CO1. 
As part of this website, we will have a business directory and to help us make this as informative as possible, we would like our levy payers to send us: 

Business name 
Summary of business
Contact details

Please send this information to hello@ourcolchester.co.uk.
