Love Wimbledon gets a YES!

The businesses of Wimbledon Town Centre have confirmed their support for Love Wimbledon BID with an 85% majority YES vote in our renewal ballot, enabling our activities and support to continue for another five years.

This will provide an additional £2.5m worth of investment into the town centre for projects including: greening, events, marketing, crime reduction, cleaning and place-making.

Love Wimbledon continually aspires to make Wimbledon a better place to visit; from family-friendly trails to our Christmas Tree, murals to Hartfield Walk, our popular markets to Winter Wonderland, and our Big Screen Tennis to Autumn Arts activities. It is about making Wimbledon more active and attractive, and creating a town that people want to visit and work in. Delivering events is just one of our key objectives, and probably is the most publicly recognised.

Love Wimbledon Business Improvement District (BID) is a not-for-profit organisation that is paid for and run by local businesses within our Wimbledon Town Centre BID boundary. Businesses fund the BID through an annual levy. All Business Improvement Districts must go to ballot every five years to secure support from the business community.

Receiving a ‘YES’ result, means that our BID businesses have supported Love Wimbledon’s work to continue, and their funding will allow us to continue to deliver for our next five year term (2022-2027). Our three aims for the next five years are to:

  • Create better places, spaces and experience
  • Promote and support business
  • Become greener and more sustainable

A big thank you to you all, the businesses and the wider community of residents, visitors and employees, who have supported us through the last five years.

Together we can ensure a brighter future for Wimbledon Town Centre.
