Your BID Team

Our Office Team

These are our main staff who are based within our office to ensure the planning and execution of events, campaigns, and other responsibilities of the BID are carried out with maximum impact to our area.


BID Chief Executive
My experience includes town centre regeneration projects, stakeholder partnership development, community safety initiatives, delivering events, marketing strategies, and developing and delivering environmental and public realm improvements.
I have a thorough understanding of regeneration schemes and how to bring them forward, working to resolve any issues that might be preventing delivery. I have worked on the regeneration of a number of strategic town centres within Walsall, setting up a number of town centre partnerships, and have secured vital investment in the continued development of strategies that result in the reduction in the number of vacant units.
I am one of just 45 BID managers to have worked towards, and gained, a certificate in BID Management.


Marketing & Event Co-ordinator
I have been at the BID since the very start and really enjoy my role as the team co-ordinator. Before this I worked at the Chad newspaper for 12 years and prior to that 7 years as the Newspaper Sales Manager at the Nottingham Evening Post. The experience and expertise I picked up from these roles has allowed me to develop strong ideas and skills at running the many events and marketing promotions for the town and businesses. As well as the day to day running of the BID office, planning our maintenance schedule, arranging workshops, etc., I also help maintain posts on our social network site. This allows the sharing of our businesses events, activities and promotions informing any visitors to the town what’s happening and when.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, gardening & dancing and spending time with my husband and two sons.


Business Crime Co-ordinator
I joined the Mansfield BID Team in March 2014 and worked as an Ambassador for a little over 4 years. Since September 2018 I moved into the position of Business Crime Co-ordinator. Prior to my time with Mansfield BID, I served for 14 years as a Police Officer with Nottinghamshire Police, during which time I worked in several roles within the Service and gained a variety of knowledge & experience in the different areas that I worked. Prior to this, I have also worked as a Prison Officer; spent over 7 years within the retail environment and also had a period of time in the Pub Trade where I worked as an Assistant Manager for Mansfield Brewery.

I am from Mansfield originally, and have a vested interest in the town where I live and where my Wife ran a successful business for 6 years supplying bottled Real Ales & Ciders. I have been married since 2002 and in my spare time, I enjoy riding my mountain bike & walking in the Peak District / Lake District when my time permits. I am also a keen member of the Mansfield & Ashfield Branch of CAMRA.

Our Ambassadors will be the face, eyes and ears for the BID team, ensuring town centre operations run smoothly. Our experienced team will provide a welcoming sense of security and a visible presence within the BID area. To arrange an ambassador visit to your business, call 01623 633939.


I have worked in Mansfield Town Centre for the past 18 years in a variety of security positions including Woolworth’s, B&Q, M&S and the Four Seasons Shopping Centre. Before this I worked as a doorman in the town so have always held my SIA badge and have a vast expanse of dealing with security issues and confrontations. I have now been with Mansfield BID since 2011 and really enjoy working with the businesses and the other partners

I have been married for 32 years and have 4 children. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, playing darts.


I have spent my career helping to keep people safe - I am a former security and former prison officer, and have also been a special constable with the police. My role, alongside that of colleague Dave Dowson, is to help co-ordinate crime prevention in Mansfield Town Centre, often acting as liaison between businesses, local authorities, the police and members of the public.

It's a challenging role but one I am really looking forward to continuing to fulfil.

Outside of work, one of my main hobbies is to partake in paranormal investigation.

Dorothy Perkins


I have worked in retail for 36 years and 32 of these in retail management. I have been the manager in the Westgate unit since 2000 when it was originally Etams, therefore I can totally understand and empathise with the situation that some retailers find themselves in during this difficult trading climate, along with the need to deal with change. I do communicate on a regular basis with other fashion retailers in the town and would be in a position to obtain their views on how they feel the town could be improved and moved forward to compete with other neighboring towns. I feel that security is of great importance to the town for the general public and businesses to ensure a safe and relaxed environment and the introduction of the BID ambassadors have been much appreciated by business owners/ managers like me.

Mansfield Computer Store


In January 2014 the chance arose to take over the old Mansfield Computers and Electronics site on Albert Street as a going concern. Sadly over time it had seen a slump and needed a kick start which I took on board.
After just over a year at that location it was obvious that times had changed and the business needed a fresh location. A few new places were considered with 13 Church Street eventually being deemed the best all round. I’ve lived locally all my life and in the town since 1993. I have an increased passion for the town since started working in it. This, along with my passion for my business, I feel could be a positive contribution to the future of the BID. Having the opportunity to help improve the town is an honour and privilege.
