From Liz Newton, Northfield Town Centre manager:

The new Northfield Business Improvement District (BID) has been set up by local businesses to improve and promote the town centre.

You’ll notice lots of changes in the coming months including lamp post banners, welcome signage and flower boxes.  We’re even bringing the seaside here with our Northfield by the Sea event from 25th to 29th July.

We know there’s a lot to be done, but we’re working hard!

So… this is where we need your help.  We’re looking for lovely people who are as passionate about the town centre as we are.

You can get involved in whatever you’re interested in, and give as little or as much time as you can spare!

We’re always looking for help with things like:

  • The Big Bulb Plant, community gardening and watering
  • The Big Tidy Up and litter picking
  • Delivering leaflets
  • Helping with events

And what’s in it for you?  Well, we hope the satisfaction of stepping back and seeing your handiwork.  There’s something very satisfying about knowing you’ve made a difference.

Or it could be you need experience for your CV, you want to learn new skills or you’d like to meet new people.

We urgently need volunteers to join us in removing weeds and litter from hotspots in the town centre:

Price’s Square (near the Post Office)

For more information call us on 0121 411 2157, or just turn up on the day and stay as long as you can!

Whatever your interest, we’d love to hear from you – simply call 0121 411 2157 or drop into the Visit Northfield shop, 693 Bristol Road South, Northfield, B31 2JT (opposite Northfield Shopping Centre’s BrightHouse entrance).
