- Christmas InDurham
As most of you will know, Lumiere is returning to Durham this November. Artichoke, the festival producer, and Durham County Council which has commissioned the festival for the fourth time, are working with Durham BID and the Policy Research Group of St Chad’s College on The Bailey to find ways to better collaborate with and support local businesses in the lead up to and during Lumiere.
Shopwatch is a national scheme which sees local businesses, in partnership with local police, report on criminal activity in cities and raise awareness of preventative techniques and resources.
In Durham, the scheme has been a great success and we’re pleased to report a new chairman has been appointed to oversee the continued prevention of crime throughout shops and other outlets across the city centre.
