You are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting for Winchester City Centre Partnership members on Thursday 27 April 2017 at 5.30 pm in the Paul Woodhouse Suite of Winchester Cathedral; this is opposite the main front doors of the Cathedral.
The purpose of the meeting is to present the annual report to members on the achievements of the Winchester City Centre Partnership, the operating company for the Winchester BID, over the past twelve months. We will also show our plans for the next twelve months present the accounts for 2015-16 and elect board members for the following year. There will be copies of the agenda available at the meeting, but it is also available for down load here.
The meeting will offer an opportunity for you to give your views on how the BID can continue to work effectively for local businesses and how it can continue to develop and promote Winchester as the perfect place to work, live, shop and visit.

Our Articles require that two of the current BID elected board members, who have served the longest, shall retire from office.
