As operators of the Business Improvement District, One Maidstone knows how important it is to the traders that we represent that streets and premise entrance ways are kept looking clean and inviting. That’s why we carry out regular, targeted days of deep cleaning, which go beyond the standard day-to-day duties carried out by the Council. We contract MBC to undertake specialist tasks, beyond those that fall within their standard remit. Chewing gum removal is one of our priority jobs for keeping trading spaces looking fresh.

SPRING CLEAN FOR KING STREET One Maidstone is cleaning up the town centre’s act, with industrial improvements and historical hoardings!

BID Manager Ilsa Butler with the One Maidstone clean machine!

The most recent of these specialist cleans took place in King Street, with a day of clearing rubbish from alleyways, jet washing footpaths, steaming away chewing gum, and re-painting poles.

But our efforts to increase the attractiveness of the town don’t end there - further along, you’ll find that One Maidstone has given a creative facelift to a familiar former pharmacy.

// onemaidstone.com

5 Whilst 98 High Street undergoes renovation, One Maidstone has come up with a novel way to disguise the building work. Celebrating the heritage of this Grade II listed building, which could be up to 650 years old, the Business Improvement District has installed an attractive and informative visual wrap, outlining some of the site’s historical interest. Ilsa Butler, Manager of the One Maidstone Business Improvement District, explains the makeover: “As part of our street scene improvement initiative, we’re looking at ways of disguising the empty units and building works that can become an eyesore for the town centre. For 98 High Street, we wanted to produce an eye-catching display that is sensitive to the building’s historical status. We hope that this new wrap will not only be more visually appealing than standard hoarding for the duration of the works, but will alert passers-by to the significance of this part of the town centre and to Jubilee Square’s story.” One Maidstone worked closely with other town centre businesses to make this vision a reality, with the graphic being designed by local creative brand GeoMedia, located within the Royal Star Arcade. Other partners included Anthony Swaine Architecture, Dolmen Conservation and Adplan Creative, with the scheme supported by Maidstone Borough Council.

A number of One Maidstone’s team have local relatives who served in both World Wars.


One Maidstone has launched its town centre campaign to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day, entitled One Maidstone, 75 Stories, kindly sponsored by McDonald’s Maidstone. Aided by the Kent Messenger newspaper, One Maidstone asked local residents to submit relatives who served in, or contributed to World War 2, abroad, or more locally. These stories will be commemorated on specially designed flags and posters of thanks, to be displayed across the town centre, and on Arriva buses, throughout the months of April and May 2020. // onemaidstone.com

Area Managing Director for Arriva Kent and Surrey, Oliver Monahan, explains why the project struck a chord with him: ‘Alongside the rest of the county and the whole country, Arriva through its originating companies, sent staff to the front line who never returned. We are honoured to be able to support this amazing project by One Maidstone to help our colleagues and customers in Maidstone remember those that were so brave in our nation’s hour of need.’ One Maidstone’s posters and flags will be unveiled at a launch on April 8th in Jubilee Square, where a specially designed double-decker Arriva bus will also be named after the occasion.

After the public gathering, veterans and the families of the 75, as well as serving members of the Armed Forces and the Mayor of Maidstone will be invited to a private celebration, kindly hosted by Cafe Rouge, Earl Street. Manager Cleo Potts explains why she wanted to make the gesture - ‘VE Day for Café Rouge Maidstone is really important, it is such an amazing anniversary, all of us owe so much to just a few people. We feel that we would like to be part of the Maidstone community and support our veterans, and that’s why we’re going to play a big part in One Maidstone’s VE Day project launch day.’

Maidstone Museum have been invaluable in providing research connected to the West Kent Regiment.

BID Manager Ilsa Butler continues, ‘After the overwhelmingly positive response from the public to our Remembrance Day artwork displayed on the front of the Mall in November, we wanted to build on this appetite for honouring our heroes by creating a campaign for VE Day 75. This event hopes to have a celebratory feel, whilst acknowledging, and indeed thanking those at home and abroad who sacrificed their lives, or life as they knew it to serve, work and help the war effort, whether that was on the battle field, or on

Indeed, some of these stories have been provided by researchers at the West Kent Regiment department of Maidstone Museum. Join One Maidstone and Arriva for the naming of the One Maidstone, 75 Stories bus, and to discover the 75 stories in Jubilee Square, 12pm, April 8th 2020.

the home front. We hope that One Maidstone, 75 Stories will encourage families to investigate their own histories, and that some interesting stories about Maidstone’s wartime past are unearthed.’

One Maidstone launched the project in partnership with the Kent Messenger newspaper.

Classic pink and white tones are an elegant choice for the woman in your life this Mother’s Day.

Vinetta Flower Gallery may be a new business to Pudding Lane, but owner and florist Vineta is hoping to bring a fresh approach to the way we buy flowers.

Recently opened Vinetta Flower Gallery is bringing a stylishly natural approach to floristry, using non-traditional designs and woodland inspiration to create unusual and beautiful displays. Vineta, who describes her signature style as earthy and flowing, is keen to share her craftsmanship with enthusiastic novices, offering weekly workshops on a Tuesday evening to pass on her skills.

Happy to give her seasonal advice to One Maidstone readers, Vineta suggests going for peachy, apricot and citrusy tones for that all-important Mother’s Day bouquet, whilst Easter calls for unique twists such as the addition of twigs, decorative eggs and of course, miniature grass bunnies! www.vinettaflowergallery.co.uk

Our busy BID Ambassadors are a familiar, and welcome sight around the town centre - but what does their role involve?

One Maidstone’s BID Ambassadors are based within the town centre, to help workers, visitors and shoppers with everything from enquiries, to anti-social behaviour. Carrying out both day and night shifts, our team are often the first response to incidents, answering radio calls and working closely with Kent Police, helping at the scene and sharing intelligence. They are also a resource for the public - if you need help at any time, BID Ambassadors will be more than happy to assist.

You can approach our BID Ambassadors at any time for help, report an incident, get medical assistance, or directions.

BID Ambassadors can be seen around the town centre, supporting the work of Kent Police. Spotting and reporting graffiti is a task Ambassadors carry out on their rounds.

BID Ambassadors regularly visit town centre businesses to check on premises, and share information and opportunities.

Ambassadors work in conjunction with security staff at locations such as Fremlin Walk and the Mall.

2019 WINTER ROUND-UP One Maidstone lights the way! From sacks of Santa’s letters, to a dramatic trbute to the fallen, we recap some of the memorable events One Maidstone brought to the town centre over the winter months. #onemaidstone

For One Maidstone, bringing back a Christmas lights switch on event wasn’t just about bulbs and performances - it was a matter of returning Christmas spirit and festive family fun to the town. So when an estimate of four thousand or more people joined us in Jubilee Square on November 21st, singing along to Christmas hits and chanting the countdown to the big switch on, we knew the appetite was still there. X Factor alumni and Dancing on Ice Winner Jake Quickenden headlined the evening, joined by the popular Powerhouse Gospel Choir and Military Wives Choir, alongside pupils from Molehill Academy. 2019 was the first year in which the One Maidstone BID had taken on responsibility

for not just the lights switch on, but the choosing, funding and installation of the lights scheme itself, a contract awarded to local experts Gala Lights. Not content with organising the Christmas lights, One Maidstone also arranged a very special visit from Santa’s post train, arriving in Jubilee Square for four days in November. Tots were encouraged to bring a letter with them, or to write one onboard, and post it to Father Christmas in the mail sacks. The train then departed for the North Pole, taking the VIP wish lists with it for the elves to process. Aside from being great fun, the event also benefitted a good cause, with the One Maidstone team being joined on a freezing Saturday

The Mall shopping centre was the site of One Maidstone’s Remembrance artwork last year.

On Monday October 28th, One Maidstone proudly unveiled its Remembrance season tribute to the Armed Forces, with a large scale window display at the Mall shopping centre, in Maidstone town centre. The occasion was marked with a launch event, attended by representatives of the 36 Engineer Regiment, the Royal British Legion, veterans, the Gurkha veteran community, AeroLegends, local Councillors, business owners and the Mayor of Maidstone, Cllr Marion Ring. Captain Joshua Thomas of the 36 Engineer Regiment, stationed at the Invicta Barracks, said ‘The artwork was truly outstanding, it really captured the essence of the tri-service camaraderie of remembrance. 36 Engineer Regiment were honoured to have been invited to assist in the unveiling of such an emotive and

the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our country. It’s a fantastic design, and I hope it brings a renewed focus on something which is really important to all of our local communities.’ The Mall also replicated One Maidstone’s artwork on an empty unit, on Floor 2, where Royal British Legion poppy sellers were stationed to take donations.

One Maidstone / Spring 2020


BID Manager, Ilsa Butler, said of the project: ‘As a Garrison town, Maidstone has a long and rich military history, and Remembrance Day is always a well observed and respected occasion throughout the borough. Representing the town centre, we felt it was fitting to produce a high impact piece that would create a real statement to mark Remembrance, hopefully provoking thought and reflection amongst the many shoppers and workers who use the Mall on a daily basis. The design was created to depict the Army, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy, honouring all those who have given their lives and their service to our country, in all forms of conflict, past and present. One Maidstone looks to build upon the positive public reception to this work with our spring campaign to mark 75 years since VE Day - One Maidstone, 75 Stories.’

Members of the Madison team are ready to greet you!



MADISONS Hang on to your Instagram accounts - a new no-filter-necessary restaurant has opened in Gabriel’s Hill. Formerly the site of Strawberry Moons nightclub, Madisons offers a premium, London inspired dining experience right here in the town centre.


Boasting glamourously luxe decor, stylish mood lighting and smart dress code, the aim is to bring a high class environment to local foodies, focusing on food and service that is worthy of standards within the capital. Costing around £2million to refurbish, the contemporary interior takes itself seriously, and is designed to impress. The aspirational decor is inspired by top London eateries.

// onemaidstone.com

Bar Manager Jay Grief shows off his cocktail making skills.

Passionate about ingredients, the team of nine chefs work within the visible kitchen to produce dishes which are described as classics with a twist - food you know and love, taken to the next level. But Madisons isn’t just about the food, telling us that the venue is a place where ‘a great meal is just the beginning.’ And it can be the beginning of a long night, with a heated roof terrace, the Moonlight Bar, open to non-diners and diners alike, offering a place for over 21s to enjoy a drink and music until 2am at the weekends.

One Maidstone / Spring 2020



Madisons serves a delicious selection of cocktails, such as this Grasshopper!

OWNED BY THE WILSON FAMILY, Madisons has a quirky story behind its name - a round about combination of ‘Wilson’ and ‘Maidstone.’ By coincidence, the venue has a mermaid at the heart of its design, a factor which we are assured is completely unrelated to the Daryl Hannah character, Madison, in the cult eighties mermaid hit, Splash! What is clear from a visit to Madison is the enthusiasm for creating an upmarket customer experience. And so far, Maidstone has flocked through the doors - able to seat 160, the restaurant has been consistently busy, and the team are pleased to report a positive response ‘The feedback makes it worthwhile -we’re listening to suggestions and feel that

we’ll be going from strength to strength.’ Madisons is located at 28-32 Gabriel’s Hill, and is open for dinner and drinks on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The Moonlight Bar is open to over 21s, and can be accessed separately from the restaurant, on Friday and Saturday nights, from 7pm until 2am.

Madisons is now open for lunch Thursday to Saturday, from 12 noon. Choose from a special lunch menu or from the full a la carte. Mother’s Day bookings are now being taken for Sunday, March 22nd, from 12 noon. 3 courses are available for £26.95, or £12.95 for children under 12 - £10 deposit is required per adult to secure your booking. Live entertainment will be provided from singer Kai Hoffman. For more information or to book, visit: www.madisons maidstone.co.uk, or call 01622 620 420

THE CHAT CONTINUES! When the West Kent Befriending Service found itself without a venue to hold its tea and talk meetings, Frederic Bistro stepped in to keep the gossip going! #onemaidstone

A division of Age UK Maidstone, the West Kent Befriending Service offers a vital lifeline to older people who feel isolated or lonely. Providing regular outreach opportunities, one of the group’s most popular projects is the monthly meet-ups for a good old cuppa and catch up. So when organiser Wendy Pfeiffer discovered that their regular host venue was no longer available, Frederic Bistro, Market Buildings, stepped in to ensure the pals weren’t left out in the cold. Owner Sarah Allsebrook said

// onemaidstone.com

The West Kent Befriending Service delivers a safe and friendly envrionment to meet new people and get out and about.

‘When we heard that the Befriending service needed a new location for gatherings, we were more than happy to welcome them to us. The event was lively, and we enjoyed meeting all the members - the service offers an important way for those who may live alone to feel part of the community, and Frederic’s is honoured to be part of that.’ Become a Freddy Friend by joining the party on the second Monday of the month, 10am at Frederic’s.

One Maidstone works closely with Kent Police on a number of different projects, helping to make Maidstone town centre a safer place to work, visit and live. The One Maidstone BID partnered with Police to deliver Domestic Abuse Guardian training, held at our HQ. Officers and representatives of the National Centre for Domestic Abuse instructed staff from the town’s bars and nightclubs on how to recognise the signs of abuse, and signposting possible victims to the appropriate services. These bar and door staff were the first to recieve the free training, which will now be rolled out to restaurant and shop workers. One Maidstone also led the way with a scheme providing Emergency Trauma Packs to local businesses. The first scheme of its kind in Kent, the packs are designed to be used by first responders to a critical situation or medical incident. The ETPs contain equipment that would prove vital in a medical emergency, such as dressings and bandages, stretcher, resus shield, thermal blankets and haemorrhage kits.

The work carried out by One Maidstone was so successful that the scheme will now be rolled out county-wide by Kent Police.

One Maidstone has even won the Divisional Commander’s Award for its approach to partnership working!

One Maidstone / Spring 2020



Police Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott visited the BID team to hear about the packs, and to see one in situ at the Brenchley pub. Other sites to hold the ETPs include the Mall, McDonald’s, Fremlin Walk and the Hazlitt Theatre.

BID Ambassador Kris shows PCC Matthew Scott the contents of an Emergency Trauma Pack.

ELMER THE ELEPHANT PACKS HIS TRUNK... ...and heads to Maidstone! At a top secret location in Madgingford, a very special elephant is being lovingly painted for his town centre debut this summer, as part of Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade. An art trail that will see dozens of uniquely decorated elephant statues appear around the town in June, the event has been put together by the Heart of Kent Hospice. As Official Events Partner for the mammoth project, One Maidstone has selected two designs by local artists to form part of the route. Whilst we can’t show you the styles we’ve chosen until they go out into the wild, we can introduce you to one of our talented designers, local illustrator Helen Bristow.
