My name is Lucy Millar. I have lived in Bradford on Avon for 7 years. I have four children 13,11,8 and 5. The eldest daughter is studying at St Laurence and three younger ones at Christchurch. The community of Bradford on Avon is extremely important to myself and my family.
I have had my own business now for nearly four years as a commercial and residential utility consultant. I also run a networking group from Cumberwell Golf Club called Link with a Latte.
I believe I can bring a fresh approach to BoA Business. I’m looking at developing a stronger network, encouraging businesses to work together in different ways and creating a more varied events calendar.
There aren’t many towns like BoA and it’s a shame that we aren’t closer. As a mother and resident of BoA I’m happy with the closeness of our neighbourhood but now I want to drive the same community spirit into the businesses of BoA and to increase connectivity.
I want fun, excitement and also to develop what Andrew has achieved over the last four years.
I believe that together as business owners of BoA we can achieve anything we set our minds to.
Nominated by Jackie Allan from Piha, Ian Brambley from Kingstons Estate Agents and Gerald Milward-Oliver from Townswork.
Continuing the work undertaken by the current committee as chair i intend to bring a more dynamic approach to BOA Business supported by other business owners utilising skill sets from all sectors to ensure we grow the towns commerce even further.
My goal when opening my business in Bradford on Avon was to improve footfall in the town and constantly lobbied the council on how to do this with little action so took the decision to become a independent town councillor to try to enhance this further, being chair will enable me to take concerns and voiced challenges to the heart of the Town Council and forge closer ties for the business community.
Alongside the towns business concerns & requirements attracting a good footfall is important and the tourism sector along with the benefits this brings is very important for our commerce and understanding and managing and is something I have expertise within. Along with a diverse committee the aim would be to bring a plan to Bradford on Avon Business to improve the footfall of the Town via tourism and local residents ensuring that all business are aware of events and their inclusion in these by keeping it local.
Nominated by Jackie Allan from Piha and Mo Bennie from Granny Mo's Deli and Cakes.
