1000BC continues to push for higher attendances
The 1000BC team, a joint initiative of the Big Bath City Bid and the club, met at the start of March to review progress and identify priorities ahead.
Its main achievements to date are the launch of a weekly club newsletter, the creation of “Romans On Demand”, a new video highlights service, assistance and sponsorship of Community Day, and getting matchday posters up in nearly 100 locations across Bath. In the coming weeks the 1000BC team will finalise a marketing strategy for the coming season, which will be shared at bigbathcitybid.org.uk/1000bc.html
