Bury is sparkling this autumn with tree lights decorating the town centre to create a warm welcome for visitors as the nights draw in.

Bury Business Improvement District (BID) installed the lights last weekend when the clocks went back with tree lights fitted on Market Street, Library Gardens and The Rock.

Victoria Robinson, chair of the Bury BID and CEO of The Met, said: “It’s great to see the work of the BID making a positive impact on the town centre.

“The tree lights really support the visitor welcome and is yet another successful BID project to highlight how great it is to live and work in Bury.

“I’d encourage all town centre businesses to get involved with the BID and take advantage of the support it can offer, from staff training to networking to events.”

Bury BID is funded by Bury town centre business to improve the town centre, increase footfall into the area and make the town a better place to visit, live and work.
