The Love Wimbledon Buying Group

Last October Love Wimbledon introduced a FREE business service for BID businesses to help reduce the company’s operating costs. Lauristons Estate Agents were one of the first businesses to take up this service and having reviewed all their utility contracts have managed to save many thousands of pounds per year. The service is a very simple one, dig out copies of your utility bills for telecoms, electricity, gas, broadband, pest control and electrical testing and our representative will source better rates or negotiate on your existing contract on your behalf. To date over £36,000 savings have been identified from just 17 businesses.

Matthew Payne from Lauristons said “Love Wimbledon BID have provided us with a business service that has enabled us to save thousands of pounds on our utility bills. For any business these are really significant savings straight to our bottom line – thank you Love Wimbledon.”

If you would like to know more about this business service, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 020 8619 2012 – it is free after all!


Only two weeks left to have your say on the future of Wimbledon.

Lines close in two weeks (February 28th ) so not long for you to have your say about Wimbledon’s future. The winning entries to the Future Wimbledon Competition  are on display outside Morrison’s on the Piazza, Wimbledon  and the public can vote on their favourite entry.

With a ‘text to vote’ system, the community can now have their say on their favourite vision for Wimbledon’s future. View the ‘Rising Stars’ designs by professionals in the design industry and ‘Creative Community’ entries, drawn up by local creatives, and pick your favourite to become ‘The People’s Winner’.

Helen Clark Bell, Love Wimbledon BID manager commented ‘ We ask anyone, whether from  Wimbledon, Merton or London, to come and vote for your favourite. It’s a once in a life time opportunity and the ‘peoples’ winner will be announced in March’.

Merton Council cabinet member for environmental sustainability and regeneration Councillor Andrew Judge said: “The exhibition of shortlisted entries showcases a wealth of ideas and allows local residents and visitors to discuss the ideas.  Our text-voting system allows people to vote for their favourite ideas so they can directly help shape the brief for future plans and events in partnership with Love Wimbledon later in 2015.”
