Watford BID awarded industry accreditation


Watford BID has been awarded an industry-led accreditation for its quality of management and effective delivery of the BID for its members and the local area.

Awarded by British BIDs, a professional body which focuses on Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in the UK, the award is granted to BIDs which demonstrate they are operating in line with a national BID criteria.

Watford BID was evaluated by independent assessors on key areas such as governance, financials, performance management, communication and reporting.

There are over 300 BIDs across the UK and Watford BID is now one of only 17 BIDs to achieve this prestigious kitemark.

Maria Manion, Chief Executive, Watford BID said, “The award is a great achievement. It is recognition of the commitment of the Board members and the small team at the BID to ensuring the town’s BID is well managed, and works with levy payers and partners while representing the interests of the town and our businesses. While we are always looking to improve, the award confirms we have good solid foundations in place for the future.”

Watford BID was set up in 2016, after businesses voted on its creation in October 2015. The BID sees a diverse range of businesses in the town centre join forces for the greater good of the town.
