Festivals in doubt and questions over how town centre is run after Stratford BID manager Diane Mansell dramatically quits

AN explosive resignation letter by the business improvement district manager has raised serious questions about how Stratford town centre is being run – and if some of this year’s festivals will go ahead.

Stratford BID is the body responsible for marketing the town, running festivals, and employing town ambassadors and is paid for by hundreds of Stratford businesses who are members.

On Monday (13th March) manager Diane Mansell tendered her resignation in an accusatory letter sent to the BID board. Her resignation leaves question marks over the town’s festivals.
