The Dartmouth BID will be manning a stand at Candlelit Dartmouth this year

The BID will be manning a stand at Candlelit Dartmouth this year and after receiving a number of requests for Dartmouth every time branded T shirts and sweatshirts we shall be selling a small selection of adult and children’s size clothing on our stand at Candlelit Dartmouth this weekend.
We have also organised a free competition designed to capture visitors email addresses whilst in town helping us to build a marketing database for the town to help promote future events. Could we send a huge thanks to those of you who have sponsored prizes for this. We are all very excited to see the first phase completed of the new Christmas lights funded by the Snow ball earlier this month and getting these in place in time for Candlelit was quite a challenge! It will take approx 5 years to buy enough lights for the whole town so sorry if your street was not included this year but Lower Street, Fairfax Place, St Georges Square, Victoria Road, Duke Street areas will all benefit this time round. This year, because of public liability insurance issues an Okehampton based company had to be used to put the lights up but next year it would be great to be able to use a more local company. So if anyone knows of an electrical company that might be interested in getting licensed for next year please ask them to contact us by emailing chair@dartmouthbid.co.uk Last – but certainly not least – during Candlelit we shall be showcasing lots of our local traders from our stand and via social media making sure that anyone who visits gets a loud reminder to explore the whole town – especially the Market Square. After all – we want them all to “shop till they drop” in Dartmouth every time!
