One of the first projects from the inauguration of Skipton BID in 2014 was the co-funding of the Town Ambassadors scheme with Skipton Town Council.

Now firmly established and rewarding the town with an enriched and informed visitor experience, Skipton BID discontinued the co-funding in 2021.

Continuing under the umbrella of Skipton Town Council, the main areas of Skipton’s Town Ambassador, Judy’s role, include providing a welcoming and helpful service to visitors and residents, working with other agencies to make Skipton a safe place for all and helping to maintain Skipton’s streets in a clean and tidy condition.

Judy has a team of volunteers who help her to carry out these tasks; and as well as being seen on market days, Judy attends most of the special events that take place in Skipton.
