HWBIDCo has just subsidised some First Aid at Work qualifications for the town's Street Angels and two of the licensees from Pub Watch. All trainees also successfully completed an additional (AED) defibrillator module. The courses were run by local company Calibre International. The courses are part of the BID company's strategy to improve the night-time economy in the town centre and to help retain our Purple Flag accreditation. The Street Angels, who are volunteers, said that the courses will greatly increase their confidence in dealing with any issues that they come across on the streets between 12am and 4am each weekend.
#PaulsRowStreetParty is a new event to the town and will run in partnership with Noodle Nation, Bluegrass BBQ and The Snug.
