“It was important for us to give back to the community we operate in and help the local BID team and council prepare the Town centre for what we hope is a busy and safe opening week.

“We regularly hold large events to help restore parts of the community, tackle litter, or help other charity’s.

“This year we have also launched our Grass route football campaign that offers free football sessions to young children in the local community.”
