Just over a week to go 'till the Brighton Xmas lights switch-on!

Just over a week to go 'till the Brighton Xmas lights switch-on!


The festive season is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing: it’s nearly time for the Brilliant Brighton Christmas lights switch-on event!

This year’s big free switch-on takes place from 4:30pm in East Street on Thursday 15th November – and as always, it promises to be a fabulous, fun festive event for all the family to enjoy.

The event, organised by Brilliant Brighton – an organisation formed of 517 businesses that put on the switch-on event and collectively pay the £75,000 per year fee to ensure the city is lit up at Christmas – is in association with Capital Brighton and Rockinghorse Children’s Charity and is sponsored by Legal & General.

Once again, the switch-on aims to showcase some of the best talent in Brighton, with toe-tapping tunes from vintage-inspired swing group, Hit the Silk, rousing a cappella Christmas carols by Actually Gay Men’s Chorus and chart hits with a fresh twist from renowned Brighton buskers Ren and Sam Tompkins. 17-year-old singer-songwriter Jack Rose (who has just finished supporting Faith Evans on her UK tour and is also the host of Amazon TV series Ghost Hunting With Jack Rose), will also be taking to the stage to perform his new single Birthday Cake.

Inspiring Hove 15-year-old fundraiser Jake Heal (who despite having the rare genetic Prader-Willi Syndrome which causes a wide range of physical symptoms, learning difficulties and behavioural problems, has raised over £4,000 for Rockinghorse Children’s Charity by taking part in their i360 iDrop Abseil) alongside Rockinghorse trustee and CBeebies presenter Sid Sloane and Father Christmas, will have the all-important task of counting down and flicking the switch to unveil Brighton’s festive lights.

To further add to the festivities, there will also be a raffle with fantastic prizes from Brilliant Brighton businesses, with all donations going directly to Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.

“We are delighted to be chosen as the beneficiary charity of the Brighton Christmas lights switch-on this year,” Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse, says.

“It’s always such a fantastic event and we look forward to raising funds for the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital through the raffle on the night.”

Gatwick Airport Draft Master Plan Consultation

Gatwick Airport Draft Master Plan Consultation


You will be aware that Gatwick Airport Ltd has recently launched a new Draft Master Plan to support growth of the Airport across the next 5 years and then rolling out to 15 years.

The Draft Plan sets out three growth scenarios and includes detail on how it will address infrastructure, the economy, the environment and the passenger experience.

The three scenarios are:

  1. Utilising the single runway, growing through use of technology, larger aircraft and more intensive operations
  2. Utilising the existing standby runway within the existing land footprint
  3. Continuing to safeguard land for an additional wide space runway, if Government Policy requires it

There is a Consultation on the Draft Plan through to 10th January 2019 with an online form to complete.  This 12-page Summary of the Draft Master Plan summarises the key elements.

Free mentoring & pitches when Small Business Saturday Bus Tour arrives in Brighton!

Free mentoring & pitches when Small Business Saturday Bus Tour arrives in Brighton!


Small Business Saturday UK, the nationwide campaign to support and promote the UK’s 5.7 million small businesses, has announced it will tour the country to spotlight and support the nation’s top growth businesses.

Now in its sixth year, the Small Business Saturday campaign bus will travel over 3000 miles across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, visiting 30 locations over 25 days.

Launching on Thursday 25 October in Blackburn, the Small Business Saturday UK campaign team will pull into towns – including Brighton (Ship Street) on Thursday 22nd November 10am-2pm) across the country, offering free mentoring sessions to small businesses, including mentors from bus tour supporter Xero’s network of small business accountants, plus many more.

Up to 20 small businesses per stop can apply to be a ‘Business On Board’. They will be given space to exhibit their business to the passing public and will be profiled across the campaign’s social media channels. Forty lucky small businesses will also win the chance to have their logo featured on the Small Business Saturday bus, via a social media competition.

With an aim to shine a spotlight on the UK’s top small businesses, the campaign will feature its special ‘Blue Sofa’ interview series, where small businesses, entrepreneurs and leading local figures can share their stories about their business or local area, to a Facebook live audience.

Michelle Ovens MBE, Director, Small Business Saturday, said:

“From Birkenhead to Belfast, Glasgow to Carmarthen, The Small Business Saturday bus will travel the country to celebrate the UK’s fantastic growing businesses and shine a spotlight on their success. This tour is a way for us to give back to businesses at the heart of communities – celebrating them, championing them and providing a listening ear and a chance for mentoring. The tour is not just open to businesses, it’s open to everyone – every individual who can take a moment to appreciate the far-reaching impact small businesses have on their community.’

The Small Business Saturday Bus Tour is an important part of the official countdown to Small Business Saturday, taking place on 1 December 2018. It follows the recent launch of the UK’s Small Biz 100 – a daily celebration of 2018’s top small businesses from across the UK.

Small businesses can book mentoring sessions during the bus tour via the Small Business Saturday website.

Mentoring is an important and valued source of support for small businesses in their local communities. Recent research from peak b revealed that small businesses play a pivotal role as employers and change-makers in the local communities, with many small business owners stepping up to mentor others and 28% offering training for the wider community.

Now in its sixth year Small Business Saturday is the UK’s most successful small business campaign, which last year saw an estimated £748m spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday.

A grassroots, not-for-profit campaign, Small Business Saturday was originally founded by American Express in the U.S. in 2010. American Express remains the principal supporter of the campaign in the UK, as part of its on-going commitment to encourage consumers to shop small.

To book your free pitch or mentoring session, simply register for an account on the Small Business Saturday website, then then pre book via the Bus Tour section.

Businesses invited to become Pride's City Angels

Businesses invited to become Pride's City Angels


Brighton & Hove Pride is the city’s largest single event and provides an amazing opportunity for all businesses to come together and show their commitment to diversity and inclusion as well as their support for the multiple community groups and charities we have.

To promote a closer working partnership with local retailers and city businesses and help promote the tourist and retail economy during Pride month and throughout the year, Pride are launching a City Angels campaign.

Pride brought in over £20.5 million into the City’s economy over the Pride weekend 2018 and  our annual survey has shown the majority of visitors are more likely to support a business or venues that is an official supporter of Pride and who are proud to celebrate the diversity of their City.

City Angels will also demonstrate their support for “Pride in our City”  throughout the year with all fundraising income will support Pride’s Social Impact Fund benefiting local voluntary sector groups and charities as well an allocation to extra resources for city-wide cleansing and other important city-wide resources over the Pride weekend.

Improvements on the way for Brighton’s train services

Improvements on the way for Brighton’s train services


Passengers travelling to and from Brighton are going to see improvements to their journeys from May next year thanks to a £67million Government investment taking place between Brighton, Gatwick and the capital.

A campaign has been launched by Network Rail to raise awareness of the dates when the line will be closed to allow the works to take place.

The upgrade work will focus on four Victorian-era tunnels – Balcombe, Clayton, Patcham and Haywards Heath – and the railway which runs through them.

From now until May next year, 34 days of closures timed at weekends and the February half term will enable engineers to carry out the first major overhaul of the southern end of the line in more than thirty years.

Mark Killick, Network Rail’s Chief Operating Officer for the South East route, said: “Passengers on the Brighton Main Line deserve a better, more reliable railway and our work over the next nine months will deliver that.”

Keith Jipps, Govia Thameslink Railway’s Infrastructure Director, said: “Network Rail’s work is essential to give our passengers the reliable, punctual services that we all want on our route and my aim is make sure everyone benefits as quickly and painlessly as possible from that.”

Network Rail is keen to collaborate with the local community and deliver a reliable and resilient line from the Victorian era to the modern age. Please sign up to our newsletter at or follow us on Twitter @brighton_line

  • international trade
  • sustainable development
  • promoting opportunity through social mobility

The application form is simple and the QAE office will offer support over the phone. Any company with two or more employees that is registered in the UK and pays UK tax can apply.  Please give consideration to see if your company might apply

Request a jet wash

Request a jet wash


Here at the BID, we’re working hard to get the council to clean the streets. As well as having continual discussions with the City Clean team, our CEO, Gavin Stewart, was recently interviewed by BBC Sussex about why more needs to be done to clean the city’s streets.

We just wanted to make you aware that businesses and residents can request street jet washing from the council here: We are continuing to report any requests that come in from businesses, plus any spots we see, but it would be helpful if our BID members would request jet washes too.

We hope that the more this service is used, the more important it is deemed to be – and hopefully more funding will be in place to keep our streets looking spotless, not only for the 11 million visitors, but also for residents and businesses too.

Independent Retailers in South East Optimistic About The Future of the British High Street

Independent Retailers in South East Optimistic About The Future of the British High Street


More than half (54.3%) of the South East’s independent high street retailers are optimistic about the future of their local high street – and eight in ten shoppers would miss their local high street if it was no longer there.
This is according to new research commissioned to launch the Government-run Great British High Street Awards 2018, sponsored by Visa. The research reveals that despite recent negative economic forecasts and high-profile retail chain closures:
  • More than four in ten (43.4%) independent South East retailers describe themselves as ‘optimistic’ about the future of their local high street and one in ten (10.9%) are ‘very optimistic’ about the future of their local high streets;
  • More than half (55%) say they predict more bars, restaurants and coffee shops will appear on their high street over the next five years.
Communities Secretary Rt Hon. James Brokenshire MP said at today’s launch: “The Great British High Street Awards acknowledge in a very important way how high streets are so vital to our nation. High streets are crucial in creating jobs, nurturing small businesses and driving local and regional economies. We want to celebrate the best examples of high streets, as well as those individual businessmen and women playing a leading role.
“The Government is doing everything in our power to ensure high streets continue to thrive.”
Suzan Kereere, Head of Merchant Services, Europe, Visa, added: “Visa is very proud to be supporting the Great British High Street Awards at a time when the nation’s high streets are transforming as both technology and consumer behaviour evolve, with consumers looking for a range of different experiences on their high streets. Businesses and communities have shown themselves to be highly adaptable, resilient and creative in meeting these demands.
“Visa is committed to finding innovative ways to support merchants and consumers and helping communities and economies to thrive. High street merchants help to establish and preserve bonds within communities that are as valuable as the economic benefits they generate.”
The findings also show that almost two thirds (65.1%) of South East retailers say being part of a local community and building relationships with customers are what they enjoy most about running their business, with almost one in four (37.3%) saying their high street is ‘improving’ or ‘vastly improving.’
But the view from shoppers in the South East is less positive, with more than seven in ten (72.5%) describing their high street as ‘staying the same’ or ‘getting worse’ and 21.6% claiming there aren’t enough shops and services on it to meet their needs.
And 63% say they feel ‘neutral’ or ‘not very optimistic’ about the future of their high street – despite more than 70% of South East consumers visiting their local high street at least once a week.
However, more than eight in ten (83.5%) people across the South East would miss their local high street if it no longer existed – and more than three quarters (78.8%) believe it is the people they meet there, in terms of both shoppers and retailers, that make it what it is.
Asked what would encourage consumers to visit their high street more and over half (54.2%) said more shops, almost four in ten (38.5%) said a better variety of shops and services and a similar number (37.4%) said better parking or public transport facilities.
Across the UK, the Great British High Street Awards 2018 research also reveals:
  • More than half (53%) of the nation’s independent high street retailers are optimistic about the future of their local high street;
  • Almost eight in ten (78%) independent high street retailers say building relationships with customers and being a part of a community is what they love the most about running their high street business;
  • Independent retailers are more likely to consider the presence of national chains as a POSITIVE factor, with around half (49.3%) saying it attracts shoppers to the area, compared to just a quarter (26%) who claim they lose business to larger retailers offering cheaper products and services;
  • A fifth of shoppers (21.3%) claim there aren’t enough shops and services to suit their needs and nearly two thirds (63%) say they feel ‘neutral’ or ‘not very optimistic’ about the future of their local high street
  • But, 81% of people across the UK would miss their local high street if it no longer existed;
  • Wales is the place most likely to see a big rise in high street coffee shops over the next five years, according to local independent traders, while Scotland will most likely see high street shops converted into housing or office space over the same period.
The Great British High Street Awards 2018, which are being run by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, sponsored by Visa and backed by other partners, is recognising and celebrating local achievements on our high streets and supporting the communities in which we live and work.
The initiative also includes a competition to find the nation’s best high streets, with winners being named in England, Scotland, Wales and – for the first time – Northern Ireland, across two categories: the Champion and Rising Star awards. An overall winner will also be named.
It was announced at today’s launch that author and TV presenter Simon Reeve will be a judge for the Great British High Street Awards 2018.
Mr Reeve said: “I’ve spent the last 16 years travelling around the world and investigating what is happening in other countries, so I’m really looking forward to being a bit closer to home and meeting the unsung heroes helping the nation’s high streets to thrive.”
In 2016, Blackburn in Lancashire was crowned the Great British High Street winner thanks to the determination of the community and local businesses who worked in partnership to drive improvements and overcome the challenges their high street was facing.
This year, winners of the Champion award, celebrating the UK’s best high streets, will be named in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with an overall national winner also selected. Four Rising Star High Streets – high streets that are taking the lead and working to adapt and diversify – will also be named. Shortlisted entries will be announced in September 2018.

Visa Great British High Street Competition

Visa Great British High Street Competition


Visa and The Housing, Communities & Local Government have launched the ‘Great British High Street’ campaign to find the UK’s best high street.

With the nation’s high streets constantly facing challenges and uncertainty, the Government, Visa and other partners will be aiming to help businesses and communities identify methods in order to adapt and ensure our high streets continue to thrive well into the future.

By sharing leading examples of how the high streets are succeeding in overcoming the challenges of a changeable environment, the competition will also celebrate the individual businesses and people who are playing a leading role in making our high streets special.

They are looking for examples of great independent retailers to use as case studies when the campaign launches to press.

The criteria they are after is as follows:

  • Must be an independent retailer
  • Must be on a high street
  • Must employ 50 people or less
  • Ideally doing something innovative (in terms of product or service, anything its doing with technology, how it works with the community etc) but still welcome to all suggestions as we are after a really diverse mix.

Brighton Chocolate Week - do you want to be involved?

Brighton Chocolate Week - do you want to be involved?


The Brighton Chocolate Festival is coming to town to celebrate Chocolate Week 2018. Taking over the Viscount Suite at the Hilton Brighton Metropole from the 13th – 14th October, Discover Cacao are inviting applications from chocolatiers and chocolate makers, to share the story of chocolate, the real cacao, highlighting the passion of the makers, the sustainability of the product, the ethical trading taking place, and the support for the cocoa farmers who are vital for the production and growth of ‘real’ chocolate. The Brighton Chocolate Festival is a FREE entry event for visitors. They will have free-from options, vegan chocolate, and fully loaded chocolate patisserie, all with the finest chocolate on offer.

During Chocolate Week (8-14 October) they are encouraging businesses in the Brighton and Hove area to join them in the celebrations, and take advantage of the hype around this event. During Chocolate Week food outlets could offer anything from a free chocolate biscuit with every cup of hot chocolate bought to a free flake in a 99 ice cream. Bars could get busy with chocolate cocktails. Restaurants could offer a chocolate-inspired meal (savoury or sweet) or create a dessert specially for the week. Hotels can leave chocolates on every pillow or offer a chocolate-inspired afternoon tea. The options are endless, including collaboration with any of our chocolatiers during the week. They have space available at the event and we are also looking for a show stopping piece to allocate a larger area to, so please do email them if you have any ideas on a joint display. Maybe a chocolate cocktail bar!

And it doesn’t just have to be foodie outlets. Spas can offer chocolate themed treatments, candles come in all flavours, chocolate-themed earrings and jewellery from cocoa beans. Chocolate art. There is no limit to our imagination.

Their website in in the process of being built, but they will have a page for any events or offer (with links) to any business joining in on the week, where they are happy to offer cross promotion for all things chocolate.

Are you a Carer Friendly company? Carers Hub can provide you with FREE resources to help your organisation become more carer friendly


Did you know that 1 in 9 employees in Brighton and Hove are unpaid carers? Working carers combine looking after a loved one at home with paid work. Many struggle to balance being productive at work with their caring responsibilities, often not feeling they can approach their employer, sometimes having to give up their jobs due to lack of understanding and flexibility.

A carer provides unpaid support to a partner, child, relative or friend who couldn’t manage to live independently or whose health or wellbeing would deteriorate without this help. This could be due to frailty, disability or serious health condition, mental ill health, or substance misuse.

Whether in the office, boardroom, or shop floor – each working carer has statutory rights, such as time off in emergencies and requesting flexible working. Many companies also offer contractual rights as part of their Carer’s policy, such as added flexibility, or encouraging staff networks for peer support.

A supportive company that recognises their working carers is more likely to keep hold of valued staff, have lower absence rates, and have improved staff productivity. Businesses have a vested interest in supporting their working carers; loss of staff and skills have a huge financial impact, costing the economy over £1.3 billion per year (Carers UK).

“We have over 24,000 people in an unpaid caring role in the City, with 20% providing over 50 hours of care per week. The highest proportion of carers are between the age of 50 and 64 years old, traditionally of working age. Nationally it is estimated that 2.3 million adults give up their jobs at some point in order to care. It is essential that we support and value these individuals by providing targeted services, alongside having a culture of identification & recognition, ensuring they can provide care, and work if they wish to. Think Carer is everybody’s business, please support us to make Brighton and Hove a Carer Friendly City.” Commissioning Manager for Carers (BHCC), Gemma Scambler.

Employers for Carers (EFC), part of the national charity Carers UK, have created some fantastic resources to help both companies and working carers including e-learning, employment guides, contract templates, toolkits and online and local support and information for carers around balancing work with caring.

Brighton and Hove City Council along with the Carers Hub – the one place for information and support for local carers – are asking SMEs to sign up to these EFC resources for FREE.

Chris Lau, local Carers Centre Director confirms “with some simple steps you can pledge to become more carer friendly…display a Carers Hub poster in your staff room, share supportive resources with your staff and encourage a dialogue about caring in your workplace.”

Find out more and join a growing number of local companies pledging to support their staff carers.

Make Change Count 2018

Make Change Count 2018


The number of people sleeping rough and experiencing homelessness in our city has been rising, reflecting a troubling national trend. 

This year’s rough sleeper review confirmed the number of rough sleepers for Brighton & Hove as 178 in the annual winter estimate. The situation is one that local organisations across the city are very aware of.

Charities and support agencies are helping homeless people every day of the year 24 hours a day. The best chance for a homeless person to get off the streets is with professional help. Outreach workers are in regular contact with people on the street, caring for their practical needs (such as food and clothing) as well as providing them with support to help rebuild their lives.

As part of the city-wide approach to rough sleeping, Make Change Count links local charities in an alternative giving and awareness raising campaign.

The campaign has three main aims:

  • Helping rough sleepers to access support services available in the city and to move away from the streets
  • Asking residents to say where they’ve seen those in need so tailored help can be offered
  • Suggesting an alternative giving option to donating on the street

Speaking on behalf of the Make Change Count participating organisations, Colm Keegan, Interim Head of Services, Equinox Brighton, said: “The campaign continues to raise awareness about how people can make informed decisions when giving money or other items to rough sleepers. We’re always keen to say that we’re not telling anyone how they should spend their money, that’s a matter of personal choice.

“A key part of the campaign is about asking people to say when they are concerned about a rough sleeper. Residents can share their concerns using the Streetlink service which provides outreach workers with the information they need to support people on our streets into accessing services to change their lives.

“We know Brighton & Hove is a caring compassionate city where people really do want to make change count.”

This year’s Make Change Count campaign sees three additional local charities join the venture which launched today (Thursday 1 February).

The existing Make Change Count charities, St Mungo’s, BHT, Nightstop, Equinox and Antifreeze, will be joined by The Clock Tower Sanctuary, YMCA Downslink Group and YMCA Brighton.

Donations can be made at: or by texting UMCC18 £3, £5 or £10 to 70070

The team there were great at helping me gain access to the system and get an ad up – both quickly and easily. I chose to advertise the role for a week however had to pull the ad after just 2 days as I was swamped with replies and applications…over 60 in less than 48 hours! I was able to then proceed with the recruitment process and confirm the hire with a job offer issued just a week after my ad first appeared on the site. Great site, super support and good value – I would recommend to anyone in the area who needs quick and easy solutions to recruiting your new team members.”

Run Hide Tell  - Counter Terrorism Police Safety Information

Run Hide Tell - Counter Terrorism Police Safety Information


At the moment, the issue of terrorist attacks is regularly in the news. But it’s been on our agenda for much longer.
The police and security service have been working constantly to foil terrorist attacks for years, not months.
But we are not complacent about keeping you safe. Due to events in the UK and abroad, people are
understandably concerned about a firearms or weapons attack. These attacks are very rare but in the event of
such an attack, it helps to be prepared.
Remember, attacks of this nature are still very rare in the UK.
So stay safe, and just remember the words: RUN. HIDE. TELL.
To watch the film, visit
Information is vital. If you see or hear something that could be terrorist related, trust your instincts and call the confidential Anti-Terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.
Our specially trained officers will take it from there.
Your call could save lives. Always in an emergency, call 999.

50% off Spota for BID Businesses *Exclusive*


Click on the image to enlargespota-nov-2016

Spota, the revolutionary social media advertising platform for businesses landed in Brighton 9 months ago and has already proved successful, connecting over 100 local businesses to 370,000 potential new customers. Through its reinvention of word of mouth marketing, Spota is taking the typical business advertising model and turning it on its head. Spota rewards people for sharing their shopping experience on social media through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This means businesses connect with more potential customers than ever before.

Businesses already know the power of social media, but tapping into it has proved expensive, time consuming and difficult to track. Now, with Spota, they can tap directly in to social media networks and reach the friends and connections of their customers, on average over 680 people with each share or post! Simply by offering a reward on Spota.

So Spota grows a business’s customer base, and customers get rewarded for doing something they already do – sharing on social media.

Brighton BID members can get an exclusive 50% reduction on the cost of using Spota for the first month, and starting credit of £5 to trial it out.
