Cherish Chippenham has appointed a Business Improvement District (BID) manager for the town.

Carolyn Brownell started in the new role of BID manager last month and is working from an office in Emery Gate.

A BID is the area in which businesses pay a levy to fund projects with the aim of improving the town centre.

Cherish Chippenham chairman Melody Thompson said: “Carolyn has been working as the assistant BID manager in Solihull and is delighted to be relocating to Chippenham as she was originally from Warminster.”
