With Christmas only 11 weeks away (thanks for the reminder Steph), businesses at the BID Leamington Open Meeting last night, held at Ginger Ace, were encouraged to come up with creative ways to help promote themselves and the town.

There were ideas shared about making Christmas wrapping materials available to customers inside Leamington’s wonderful cafes and bistros, along with installing a festive advent calendar window at the Royal Priors.

Titan Storage Solutions made a generous offer of free storage space to Leamington businesses on the run up to Christmas – very handy if your stock levels are set to increase during the festive period.

Reminding us all of lively summer days to come, Jo Cameron invited businesses to become involved with next year’s Leamington Summer Carnival – either as sponsors or volunteers. Afterwards, business owners networked with a glass of wine in hand, and admired the stunning artwork on loan from Deasil.
