The turnout at Sunday’s Half Marathon finishing line at Wharf Green was outstanding. Swindonians showed up in their droves to support the runners in their final leg of the race in the town centre. I am proud that inSwindon BID could support the Half Marathon team in bringing the race to the town centre and we look forward to working together on the event in the future. I would like to congratulate all those who took part, as well as all the spectators and volunteers who made the day the success it was.

It may be a bit early to start talking about Christmas! However, over the past few months we have been busy planning the programme of events for the town centre Christmas lights switch-on and we are extremely excited about what we have got lined up for you. I don’t want to give too much away, but we have some exciting acts already confirmed — watch this space — date for your diary Saturday 18th November 2017.

As part of our Market Research Strategy, inSwindon are carrying out a town centre online survey — see swindontowncentre.co.uk — it’s vital that we hear from you! Tell us your views by going online — there’s a chance to win a £25 shopping voucher!

Finally, I would like to remind you about the new Artisan Market coming to Wharf Green this Saturday.

There will be plenty of quality produce, original art, designer crafts and sizzling street food, all mixed in with family activities, music and much more! The market is on from 10am until 5pm – I hope you can make it!

I hope you enjoy reading the inSwindon Advertiser which highlights some of the great reasons why the Swindon Town Centre is a great place to visit. I look forward to welcoming you to the town centre soon. Best wishes, Di Powell, InSwindon BID Chief Executive
