Salisbury’s bunting is back, funded by Salisbury BID, Salisbury City Council and the Old George Mall.

About 4.5 kilometres of bunting is brightening up the city for residents – and visitors, once restrictions are relaxed.

Salisbury BID Director and Chair of the city’s vibrancy partnership Susi Mason said: “Salisbury is a beautiful city and we are very lucky to live and work here, but the bunting brings a little extra vibrancy which is much needed this year. I have already heard one business owner has said her spirits had been ‘lifted’ by it, proving it does really make a difference!”

The bunting is one element Salisbury BID and Salisbury City Council are working on as part of efforts to get the city ready to welcome back visitors. The BID City Ranger and City Council Street Scene Team are cleaning and repairing signage, tidying planters ready for summer flowers, and pressure-washing all pavements in the city centre – and more!

Work is also continuing on a piece of eye-catching art work for the high street. Salisbury BID will announce more Dan Collins, Salisbury BID Business Manager, said: “We want to support shops and other businesses as we head out of lockdown, and when allowed, show Salisbury is open and welcoming. Salisbury BID is focusing on work that brings vitality and enthusiasm to the city centre, and we hope the bunting does just that, as well as adding a little cheer!”
