The reputation and performance of Cheltenham’s retail sector are important for the Southwest and a bell-weather for the UK. We caught up with Alex Rose, Chair of the Business Improvement District (BID) and Managing Director of Beards Jewellers, to look back at 2019 and to see what the BID has planned for the New Year.
