Harrogate BID has begun to dress the streets to continue to take pride in the town by displaying the well-known Coat of Arms on new bunting.

Harrogate is known for its unique welcome and the BID wants to carry on supporting this through eye-catching public realm and targeted campaigns.

The Coat of Arms bunting has been placed on streets in the heart of Harrogate including James Street and Princes Street, while other popular shopping areas such as Cambridge Street, Oxford Street and Beulah Street have been lined with spring-themed flags as we move into the warmer months of the year.

Bethany Allen, Business and Marketing Executive at Harrogate BID, said: “With the town centre streets now adorned with spring colour and the Harrogate Coat of Arms bunting – and with the hanging baskets to follow – it well and truly feels that spring is on its way in the town.

“We will change the bunting at key times of the year to celebrate the European Championships and Yorkshire Day, which will remain up until the Christmas lights return.”

Bunting has worked well in Harrogate in the past, with the BID team lining the streets to celebrate events including the King’s Coronation and Yorkshire Day.

Harrogate BID continues to work hard to create a clean, safe and attractive town centre. The aim is to ensure that the pride in the town shines through additional projects to strengthen the environment for businesses, residents and visitors alike.

As well as the brand-new bunting, plans to put festoon lighting and street art in place are underway to ensure the town centre remains attractive and the night time economy continues to thrive.
