Business owners and members of the public had the chance to voice their opinions on the Hitchin Business Improvement District (BID).
On Tuesday, people attended a drop-in exhibition which was held in The Adams Room and Library at Hitchin Priory.
The event gave people the chance to see how the BID has progressed in the past five years, and give their views on what they would like to see happen over the next five years.
The BID, which was set up in 2008, delivers on issues that businesses themselves identified as being key to improving their trading environment in the town.
Some of the things Hitchin BID has done has been deep cleaning the pavements, monitoring cleaning, highways maintenance, Christmas lights, floral baskets and displays, and business mentoring and training.
A BID renewal ballot for Hitchin businesses will be held in February next year. Keith Hoskins, Hitchin BID manager (pictured above with BID management officer Chris Hollins) , said: “We had a steady stream of people visiting the exhibition, all making interesting comments about the BID.”
