“In a year where all businesses, and in particular the UK’s High Streets, have faced a lot of uncertainties and challenges, it’s been really pleasing to see that Collectively Camberley continues to make a real difference to our Town Centre. I’ve been proud to work with the BID Team and the many volunteers from our town’s vibrant business community to deliver some really exciting initiatives in Camberley. It’s thanks to this hard work that we’ve been able to achieve so much this year. I look forward to working with you to make next year even better. Thank you for your support."
