Sharing the joys of Clifton Village

Lucy Shaw is a woman on a mission to get more visitors to Clifton Village. 

As the newly appointed manager of Clifton Business Improvement District (BID) she says: “It’s a priority for me to get more people here not just from other parts of Bristol but beyond the city as well.

 “I want to raise awareness of all the things that Clifton has to offer. People who haven’t been here really don’t know what they’re missing.   There’s lots of independent shops, restaurants and bars to visit apart from some of Bristol’s top tourist attractions like the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the observatory and Clifton Downs” she said.

 “I have a clear vision about getting people here. One of the first things I want to do as the BID manager for Clifton is to get an interactive map working for the area. At the moment there isn’t anything to help visitors find their way around and direct them to places of interest.  I also want to see better signage on the streets” she said.

Lucy,  who hails from Lithuania added: “I regard Clifton as my second home”

As BID manager, she succeeds Pete Crawford,  who has retired after four years.

Lucy also runs the Mary’s Living and Giving Shop for Save The Children in Regent Street.
