The Welwyn Garden City BID awards are designed by the Business Improvement District team to celebrate, recognise and promote great shopping, dining and customer service experiences in Welwyn Garden City town centre. And I was thrilled to be contacted by the BID team to photograph this event.
The businesses who make up the Welwyn Garden City BID organisation aim to improve and promote Welwyn Garden City town centre, and make it a great place for people to visit.
The awards, which are judged by mystery shoppers, are held in recognition of the work businesses do to contribute towards the success of Welwyn Garden City town centre. There is also the opportunity for people to nominate their own favourite businesses.
Welwyn Garden City businesses go to great efforts to ensure customers keep returning. And in a time where internet shopping is influencing the success of the high street so much, it was a pleasure to photograph this award ceremony.
