New Chairman For Dorchester BID
7:17am 9th May 2014
The new chairman of Dorchester BID has been meeting local businesses in the town.
Mike Reed from Dorchester Hair Studio has taken on the role, with Sian Merriott from Nantes Solicitors as the new Deputy Chair.
Mr Reed says he's looking forward to the new challenge and playing his part in the positive work the BID does for the town and its business community.
His appointment comes after the death of Peter Legg last year.
John Fiori from the Horse with the Red Umbrella had been taking up the real since Mr Legg died. He said;
"I was willing to act as chairman in the short term while some of the newer board members got up to speed on the workings of the BID and for them to understand about how the BID works and the role of the BID in Dorchester."
"We still miss Peter of course and he remains a very hard act to follow."
