Richard Lamb - Chairman

Owner - Nothe Tavern, Boot Inn and Kings Arms

Location: South Side of the Harbour

I am delighted to be involved in the Weymouth BID and as a relative newcomer to the town I recognise the need for Weymouth to have all year round appeal.

I believe this can only happen with the levy payers pulling together through the BID. This should encourag people to visit and revisit this amazing cultural and historic town. The history of the town is also its future.

I encourage BID payers and the wider town to become engaged so we can all enjoy and benefit from a vibrant town.

My pledge as a Board member, is to have full tranparency and ensure all documents are open for public view.

James Winchester

Coversure Insurance

Location: Abbotsbury Road

I have been in the Insurance Industry for ovr 10 years and have lived in Dorset my entire life. Having just starting working for Coversure in Weymouth in October 2017, I am currently in the process of moving to Weymouth with the family and working as part of the BID was an obvious move.

My speciality is Business Insurance and I understand that Businesses that work together, with themsleves and with the community have better and less claims, so the BID makes perfect sense in that aspect.

I look forward toworking with the BID and am proud to have been selected as a Board Member. I'm looking forward to BID2 and the greater future of Weymouth for all.

I've lived in Weymouth for 25 years, I own the Londis stores on Abbotsbury Road, Westham Road and the Rock and Fudge Shop on the Esplanade. I also own three other Londis stores outside Weymouth, but Weymouth is my base and home.

I'm passionate about the BID as I believe it delivers mutual benefit for lots of businesses in Weymouth. I like the fact the BID isn't steered by local politics or national government policy. Its our money and can be spent in our town on our projects.
