60 seconds with... Angie Blackford

16 December 2019

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH INSWINDON BID?

I joined the inSwindon BID team in September of this year.

TELL US A BIT ABOUT A TYPICAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF ANGIE?

I have to say, there is nothing typical about any day with inSwindon BID. As Marketing Coordinator my duties are varied but I have the pleasure of promoting Swindon town centre in a very positive light, from social media to advertising along with the Loyalty Club and town centre events.

I joined the team just as the Christmas Light Switch-On plans started taking shape. The amount of preparation for this event was huge but it was an exciting time for me to be a part of a dedicated team and also an event that launched Christmas in the town centre.

Following on from the Light Switch-On, a Christmas Tree was installed in Newbridge Square. This was my first solo initiative and a project I was very proud to work on with the businesses that provided the sponsorship.

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR CAREER?

I am looking forward to 2020, to continue to showcase the positives in Swindon town centre and to support the businesses with their own projects and initiatives.

TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOU...

I am a big fan of F1, especially Lewis Hamilton!
