Amazing new footage of Morecambe - courtesy of the BID

by Gary West


Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID) has released new footage of the town.

Earlier this year the organisation commissioned Colin Aldred, of Aerial Artwork, to shoot video and photography from the skies above Morecambe, to help the feel good factor in the town

Shot over a day, the video highlights the topography and architectural heritage of Morecambe Bay.

The footage has already had more than 29,000 views, and in excess of 500 shares and has been reacted to positively, on BID's Facebook page.

The chairman of Morecambe BID, Brendan Hughes, said: "This year Morecambe is very busy. The completion of the public realm works on the seafront, and Euston Road, combined with the opening of the Bay Gateway, has certainly put us on the map.

"Businesses are also taking note and the town is taking on a fresh look, helped by the improvement grants launched by BID late last year. We expect more businesses to take up the grants when we launch the second round later this year."

Mr Hughes added: "The video certainly does Morecambe proud and locals certainly have a lot to be proud of. The festivals and events calendar is fuller than ever and this year BID was the major sponsor of the Morecambe music festival which was an outstanding success.

"Another major date in Morecambe’s calendar is just around the corner with the Morecambe Carnival, shortly followed by the Vintage Festival, which is another huge crowd puller.

Morecambe BID Community Interest Company was established by Morecambe businesses to promote and improve the business environment in Morecambe, and also make improvements for its' residents and visitors.
