Lichfield BID manager to step down after less than a year in the job

The manager of the Lichfield Business Improvement District is to leave her job.

Morag Pringle took up the position last November.

But she has now decided to return to a role with her former employers.

“It wasn’t an easy decision,” she told LichfieldLive. “But I still love Lichfield and hope the BID will be the success I know it can be.

“I will still be coming back regularly for my shopping and evenings out, so I will be keeping an eye on the place.”

The Lichfield BID was approved after a ballot of city centre businesses last year.

It sees companies pay a levy which is then reinvested in projects designed to improve footfall in the city centre.

The Lichfield BID has already invested in new radios to help cut crime and anti-social behaviour while plans are also exploring the introduction of free Wi-Fi throughout the centre of Lichfield.

    8 months before she finally got bored of sending out newsletters, trying to flog cheap first aid courses and generally not being seen in the businesses she supposedly represented.

    Surely not! So does PM assume total control now?

    It’s because she was so frustrated with Lichfield Council blocking ideas
