Here for you…
Raising Our Voice
Our Chief Executive, Helen Clark Bell represents Wimbledon town centre on many national forums, such as The High Streets Task Force and Institute of Place Management, lobbying to raise the issues that our businesses are experiencing, to influence government policy and strategy. As your BID we also raise local issues and concerns with partners too and follow through for a resolution.
Please do get in touch and let us know about your issues.

What can you do?
It may be time to think differently…
- Can you get your products delivered through local delivery companies?
- Have you added a virtual service to what you already offer?
- Can you help support other local businesses, organisations or initiatives? E.g. Wimbledon Foodbank, Local Dons Action Group, Community Fridge, Wimbledon Guild and Merton Giving Coronavirus Fund.
- Some businesses are finding this is a good time to build their online presence by claiming their ‘Google My Business’ listing, asking customers for reviews and developing their social platforms. We’ve created a toolkit to help you navigate Google My Business.
