Nigel Shields, Bury BID’s new director, said: “I am so excited to be given the opportunity to make an impact on this wonderful town.  Bury is my chosen destination to work, shop and socialise and I want to show people who are new to the town or come from out of town, exactly what Bury can offer them.”

Nigel describes himself as “a local lad” who would like to see a thriving Bury community in the town centre and is keen to showcase what Bury has to offer. He enjoys family time, playing table tennis and in the summer, can be seen frequenting the golf courses in the area.
