    The Blackburn Gingerbread Christmas Trail

    =
    The activities create something special for the town. They give families something to do together and we've seen lots of new faces coming to do together and we've seen lots of new faces coming in to the shop as a result. The BID should be proud of itself.
    Moss
    Manager at Rhode Island
    =
    The events - like the Festival of Making and Pride - bring in a lot of new customers. The sand trail did well for us too. A lot of people stopped to take photos and then come in for a coffee. We have had quite a few people come back after too.
    Julie Sheppard
    Manager at Mad Hatters Tea Room
    =
    We had a really good event and lots of footfall. I feel the events will create us some new regular visitors, as a few did stay to play. We also had some who said they didn't know what we did but will be back, which is amazing! All in all the event was brilliant and we will definitely be more happy to take part in this kind of event again.
    Linda
    Manager, Geek Retreat
    =
    All the engagement as a result of the trails has been absolutely amazing. We have doubled our footfall over the week. We can see all the smiles on the children's faces and we're definitely going to get involved in anything organised by Blackburn BID in the future.
    Uwais

    =
    I think the response to the BID's trails has been great! Children have been coming in with their parents to look at the sculpture, taking pictures and looking around the store while they're here.
