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 encourage 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 transparency and ensure all documents are open for public view.

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.

Graham Perry

Fairbridge Trust

Location: Trinity Road

I grew up in Weymouth and although I've lived and worked away for many years, this has always been home. We moved back to Weymouth in 2014 and in 2016 purchased and renovated a harbour-side property which is now the location of The Bridge Fair Trade Shop. The shop is run by the Fairbridge Trust, a charity which in addition to promoting Fair Trade goods raises money for the relief of poverty locally and overseas.

I am a Trustee of Weymouth Museum and strongly believe that Weymouth's hertiage and our historic harbour should be exploited to a much greater extent to promote the area, particularly outside the traditional season.
