Ripon

Post by Hils and Glenns »

I obviously posted this in the wrong place and have been redirected here.
So copying in my original post.

Hi This is my first post and I'm not certain of the set up. I hope I'm posting in the right place.
I live locally to Ripon North Yorkshire which is bang in the middle of some very good attractions. Unfortunately Ripon gets overlooked being the poor relation to Harrogate. Ripon has a number of carparks that are empty at night.
I have just read this article
https://thestrayferret.co.uk/ripon-bid- ... lSYs5wUKSM
I am thinking of approaching them re the possibility of motorhome parking. Has anyone already approached them? If not can you advise me on how to do it. Regards Hils and Glenns

Hello. I'm on the Leadership Team and live in Harrogate. I think you're right - Ripon does get overlooked. I think it would be a great idea to approach the BID team. There are lots of templates on the website under Letter Templates, or just write your own. Remember to keep it positive - ie the positives that motorhome tourism can bring. Invite them to look at the business hub on the website and use the contact email if they need any more info. Happy to help at any time.

Thanks Steve. I'm not sure how or where to find the BID team as yet. I'll see if I can find them. Any help appreciated.

Hi I have contacted the BID team in Ripon now using one of the templates here and making adjustments appropriate to Ripon. I haven't received a reply yet. To be honest I'm feeling less hopeful now, but I've done my best so we'll just have to see.

Don't give up, try different departments. Is there a an economic regeneration officer, tourist officer, or write to different councillors especially the opposition party.
Never stop trying, eventually you will get an answer and then start again.
What's no good for one department will work for another, you just have to find them.

Hi I have resubmitted my proposal to the Ripon Bid team. The team is definitely up and running now. Last time I submitted they asked me to get in touch later as they weren't ready yet. So we'll see. Fingers crossed.

Did you send our briefing document?
It will highlight the financial benefits especially the link to report from Ireland.
