Subsidised Wall-Mounted Christmas Tree Offer


Help make Christmas shopping in Weymouth even more enjoyable!

A big thank you to the 33 businesses who took up the Christmas Tree offer in 2016. Weymouth BID is keen to increase the number of businesses taking part and hopes that you will consider one or two trees to brighten up your premises this Christmas and help contribute to the town’s Christmas atmosphere.

The overall effect of the 33 trees along with the new lighting installed from the BID’s £10,000 Christmas lights win, clearly made Weymouth a much brighter place to enjoy and shop.
Once again we are offering businesses the opportunity to have a wall mounted, real, lit Christmas tree or trees for their premises. Our local contractors, have agreed to hold their prices from last year, but we have seen a small increase in the cost of the bracket.

This is a subsidised package exclusively for payers of the Weymouth BID levy.

Remember, if you invested a bracket/s last year, it’s just the cost of the Trees this year.

The offer is for:

  • One real Christmas tree, trimmed and dressed with Christmas lights, installed in mid-November and taken down in early January.
  • The true cost is £62.50 + VAT, of which, Weymouth BID will subsidise each tree purchased by £22.50.
  • Leaving the cost to your business at just £40.00 + VAT per tree.
  • This will be an ongoing BID subsidised offer that will be made annually, subject to price confirmation.
