MR BIG gets bigger at 2nd Meeting of Market Rasen Businesses

40 local businesses attended our second meeting

The Market Rasen Business Improvement Group – affectionately known as MR BIG by its supporters – is growing in numbers, thanks to the backing of local business people.

The second public meeting organised by the group was extremely well attended with around 40 traders and business owners coming together for a productive two-hour session on Monday 5th March at Holy Rood Schoolroom, Market Rasen.

The group got its sleeves rolled up. Building on the success of broad-brush brainstorming activities at last month’s inaugural meeting, this month the focus was firmly on improving the appearance of the town, with a view to making it more appealing to local and regional shoppers.

Three groups tackled issues of Events, Shops and General Standards. Within only an hour of brainstorming, the group created an action plan covering 20 topics with around 45 individual ideas put forward.

Crucially the plan also named names – people at the meeting who were willing to take an idea and make it happen, and many thanks to everyone who has done this. But we need more, of course.

All of the ideas generated have been collected together to create an action plan now shared by email with attendees at this meeting and those who attended the first MR BIG meeting in February.

The Group will be working in co-operation with local traders as well as other established groups and bigger businesses in the Market Rasen area, to ensure that actions are carried through to achieve visible improvements as quickly as possible.

MR BIG’s next meeting will be on Monday 2nd April at 7pm, Holy Rood Schoolroom. All registered business owners will be invited. If you’re a Market Rasen business and you want to be involved, click this link to complete our online registration form now.
