Malmesbury Town Team
Malmesbury Town Team consists of a group of local people, many with business experience, who see Malmesbury’s town centre as a brand which needs nurturing and supporting. Brought together with a common objective, they all bring different skills to the table to ensure initiatives in the town are driven forward and its ongoing prosperity secured.
There are three layers to the Town Team consisting of:
The Leadership Team which is made up of five core members and five specialist members.
Task Groups that will drive specific projects on behalf of the Town Team.
Support Team made up of individuals, both Malmesbury area residents and local business owners, who have an interest in supporting the Town Team.
The Leadership Team
The Leadership Team consists of 10 members in total. Five core members are from key local constituted organisations as follows:
- Malmesbury and District Chamber of Commerce
- Malmesbury Neighbourhood Steering Group
- Malmesbury Residents Association
- Malmesbury Town Council
- Wiltshire Council
A further five specialist members have been elected by the five core members of the Leadership Team. These members mostly originate from small and large retail, tourism, hospitality and customer service related businesses.
Individual Task Groups will be set up to drive specific projects and will be established and agreed on by the Leadership Team.
Reporting back and making recommendations to the Leadership Team, they will be a valuable resource in driving projects forward and bringing expertise where needed.
A number of local residents and business owners have signed up as interested parties and wish to support and give feedback to the Town Team. This is an important part of the process and we would like to encourage as many people as possible to become Town Team Supporters.
We have been encouraged by the number of people who have already taken part in two recent local surveys, involving the input of hundreds of residents and business owners. The survey conducted over five days saw an impressive 482 responses, exceeding the target of 400. The results are being analysed and, along with further proposed research, will help to form Malmesbury’s future town strategy.
