It is hard to imagine that it is just coming up to one year since we first bought 2 Castle Street, with lots of vision, and how in 12 short months we have achieved much of that vision.
Still work to be done - yes, but with all our Units now let, our Gallery becoming more & more popular with visitors & craftspeople wanting to rent space, things are looking promising.
So lets have a catch up on the last week, and future offerings.
Organised by the Tourist Board - of which we are members - it is an opportunity for us to tell everybody about Old Bolsover Yard, what we are doing & when we are doing it.
Visitors to the event, being held in Buxton, will include hotel owners, B&B owners, tourist information centres and many others, and if we can get to tell them all about OBY all in one place, then it is going to be a day well spent.
As well as the Yard itself, we will be promoting each of our tenants & those in our Gallery.
And indirectly, we will be promoting Bolsover as a tourist destination too!
Bolsover Food & Drink Festival 2019
Well, yesterday I had a second meeting with them, to move things along, and I'll let you know in more detail next week what we decided
Unit update ....
Last week you will remember - if you are a regular blog post reader - I told you that we had filled our last Unit, with Molly Felicity Designs joining us very soon. Well on Monday their Unit was painted, and I know that much planning of the interior layout etc. has been taking place. So it won't be long now until the doors are open & you can come & see just what they have got to tempt you.
Meanwhile, two doors down, Creative Handmade Crafts, have been busy laying flooring, putting up shelves & getting ready to move in. And my information is that they did 'move-in' on Monday, so time for some photos I think.
New face in the Gallery ....
And to tempt you here is a gallery of some of the products that she produces -
Bolsover TV ....
Well hot on the heels of those videos comes Bolsover TV. Introducing the launch Scott Chambers from BDC said -
Following the successful launch of our Destination Marketing promotional films last week, we have now launched our first Bolsover TV news programme.
This new programme will initially be aired once a month and will feature the latest news, local issues and views from across Bolsover District and can be viewed on our website - www.bolsover.tv
The channel is not just about what we as a council are doing. It’s also about the District and our communities and we want to showcase what is happening, what community groups are available for people to join in with, what tourist attractions we have on offer, what businesses are doing and what events are taking place. So if you or you know someone that would like to be featured on Bolsover TV then please ask them to make contact with me or complete our online form at www.bolsover.tv/index.php/contact
My team have worked very hard to get this new channel and programme up and running and we are really excited about it and the options it opens up to us to communicate with our residents, tourists and businesses to help promote what is happening across our district.
The video about Bolsover & District was put up on the Old Bolsover Yard Facebook page a couple of nights ago. It is well worth a watch, and I am hoping to get Old Bolsover Yard on the TV Channel real soon!
Forthcoming events ....
