Welcome to Visit Knowle
Knowle is a haven for independent shops, salons, restaurants, cafes and businesses.
The Visit Knowle membership scheme has been developed by local businesses with the aim of making Knowle a more vibrant, attractive and successful place for all involved.
Whilst we already represent a number of key interests in the town and are a fully independent, business-led company, increasing membership is vital to us. It enables us to represent your views as effectively as possible. We need as many businesses as possible to join and contribute to the plan of improvements. The income from membership subscriptions will be used on tangible and high-impact projects that drive footfall to Knowle and increase your customer base.
Direct benefits to your business from joining Visit Knowle include:
- Every penny of membership income being spent on projects to boost footfall
- The development of a strong and independent local business group
- Monthly updates on specific local and regional issues
- Access to briefings on key matters and the ability to lobby for further change
- A package of improvements for the village centre which you help to identify
Visit Knowle has been formed to benefit by local businesses with the aim of making Knowle a more vibrant, attractive, and successful place for all involved. We welcome business members from Knowle. Local businesses close to Knowle are welcome to join as a business member too, but our marketing strategy focuses on Knowle meaning your business may not be featured in our social media. If you’d like to find out whether you’d qualify for social media posts, contact us.
Knowle home based businesses are welcome to join and access the benefits. We can’t offer branded photography in your home, but you are welcome to attend photography sessions in the village to gain some “headshots”
The annual cost of joining Visit Knowle is £114 (inc. VAT) per year and we therefore hope that you will be able to join us in driving significant improvements to business in Knowle.
