Karen will officially start the role today, replacing Andrew Hopkins who had been in post since November 2018 and will officially leave later this month.

Graham Sizer, Minehead BID Chair said: “Andrew has been a great asset to our BID. As our first 5-year BID term progressed from 2018 it became plainly clear we’d struck gold. From a blank canvas, he systematically tackled our Business Plan and we are very proud of the achievements we have made together. Whilst we are sorry to see him leave, we are delighted to welcome Karen to the team in her new role.

Having taken over as our social media managers in November, Karen and Sarah from Morledge & Co. have already made a significant impact to our work and with Karen’s experience of BIDs and destination management and marketing, she was an ideal candidate to become the interim BID Manager.”

Karen Morledge, the new Minehead BID Manager said: “I’m very much looking forward to supporting the business community in Minehead and working with everyone to deliver the variety of exciting projects and initiatives over the remaining term of the BID. Minehead is a wonderful place and I’m determined to carry on the great work of Andrew Hopkins to ensure the town has a great 2022 for both locals and visitors alike”.

Andrew Hopkins, said: “It has been a real pleasure working with everyone over the last 3 years. I will look back at my time in Minehead with much fondness and many happy memories. Can I thank all of you who have made me feel so welcome and can I wish you every success in the future. I look forward to returning to the town as a visitor in the future."
