Dear Wakefield BID Member,
With the current national Coronavirus situation, the BID are committed to doing everything possible to support our levy-payers through what are quickly changing circumstances.
We understand the concerns of all our businesses and have enabled all staff to work from home, so please continue to contact us via email, social media or telephone if you require help in any way.
Please note that we have made arrangements with Wakefield Council for a BID levy holiday of at least 3 months, meaning that any BID levies due on 1st April will not become due until at least 1st July.
The wellbeing of the entire business and wider Wakefield community is our absolute priority, and, in the coming weeks and months, we will do all we can to divert resources to help our levy payers.
We would also urge you to check wakefieldfirst.com for financial assistance during these very difficult times.
Chair, Wakefield BID
