Client name: Winchester Business Improvement District (BID) Location: Winchester City Centre Number of businesses: 700Area: Entire Winchester BID area
The city of Winchester in Hampshire attracts more than four million visitors each year. With a thriving business district, bustling shopping streets and numerous eateries and seasonal events on offer, the city is a popular destination for local residents and tourists alike. Winchester Business Improvement District (BID) has been in operation since April 2008 and delivers a range of services and initiatives designed to support local businesses.
A key focus for Winchester BID is effective street management, which is integral to showcasing Winchester as a safe and attractive place to work, live, shop and visit. Antisocial behaviour is a common problem within any town and city centre location. As well as being unpleasant for residents and visitors, it has the potential to adversely impact on footfall, local retailers and more broadly, the reputation of the area.
Venture has previously worked with Winchester BID providing security. Impressed by the results and with Venture’s fully trained and accredited security professionals, the team was enlisted by Winchester BID to carry out daily patrols of the city centre. The Winchester BID Rangers support the organisation’s commitment to providing a safer environment, while helping to reduce low level crime and antisocial behaviour.
Services Venture Security currently provides:
“The Rangers are playing an important role in the city, being a welcoming presence on the street, whilst supporting the many businesses and helping to keep our city safe.”
