POSITIVE BALLOT FOR MY SHAWLANDS
The Shawlands BID became operational on the 19th June following a positive ballot in April and have recruited Lisa McLaughlin as the BID Manager to oversee the projects detailed in the business plan.
We have started the procurement process for seasonal lighting, planters, hanging baskets and banners along with gathering ideas for our Christmas events to increase footfall in to the area. A meeting will be held for all the members at the end of August so we can gather ideas and work collectively to make this a success.
The BID supported the ‘Skirving Street Stravaganza’ in July and the local independent businesses braved the rain to host a fun day with live music, Punch & Judy shows, balloon modelling, treasure hunt, street BBQ and instore offers as a big thank you to all the regular customers who support the local shops.
It is great to see some new businesses opening in Shawlands so we would like to give a warm welcome to ‘IT ALL STARTED HERE’ in Deanston Drive and ‘DREAM DOORS’, Kilmarnock Road.
