If you missed the Dorking BID today on BBC Surrey with James Cannon, tune in here at 01:51:33 and again at 02:22:26.
Dorking BID Manager Kathy Kyle discussed what the BID does and how it is helping to rejuvenate the local community.
The Dorking BID exists to support our future-focused, resilient and sustainable market town where businesses thrive and where people want to live, start a business, work, and visit.
The Dorking BID is business led and funded. It focuses on creating a safe, clean, green and welcoming environment for all to enjoy, where ideas and feedback are listened to and acted upon.
The team works collaboratively with community partners to support, enable and empower the local community.
When people support local businesses, we are investing in ourselves.
And that is what the Business Improvement District does; we collaborate with our community groups, schools, families, council, to make Dorking a better place to live, start and own a business and visit.
In case you missed it, tune in to BBC Surrey and catch our BID Manager sharing why you should support local and come to our DorKing Coronation on 8th May!
