“I’m thrilled to be working with Minehead BID and helping to share all that Minehead has to offer for residents and visitors. I’m already a fan of Minehead, but I’m really looking forward to getting to know more of the businesses and supporting them with everything during the build-up to Christmas.”
Andrew Hopkins, Minehead BID Manager said: “Morledge & Co. have literally hit the ground running and are already proving fantastic to work with. I was delighted that the BID Board have appointed Karen and Sarah and I’m looking forward to seeing their creative campaigns to support all that we do as a BID in terms of marketing and promotion.”

Speaking of the appointment, Graham Sizer, BID Chair said: “Whilst I may be a more traditional shopper and certainly no expert when it comes to social media, Morledge & Co. came highly recommended and we very much hope the businesses and town will benefit from their digital marketing know-how.”
