General Manager at Experience Guildford

As the Business Improvement District for Guildford, we are very pleased to see the small businesses of the town have a platform like Small Business Saturday to showcase their stores and to have heard their comments and issues that affect them. [See: Small Businesses Say: Two Main Problems – Business Rates and Customer Parking]

However, it is a little dismaying to see that there is not mention of the free parking initiative which is happening right now. We delivered what the businesses of Guildford told us they wanted.

With GBC’s support the BID is providing free parking every Thursday in December after 4pm in all pay and display car parks and there will be free parking in all car parks on Boxing Day.

We are here to support initiatives such as Small Business Saturday and provide as much support for the retailers as possible by securing projects such as free parking.

However, we need all parts of the business community to recognise and promote these initiatives to help make them successful and retain Guildford’s attractiveness as the varied retail experience it is.
