Why you should love your high street…..more now than ever before!

Almost three years ago the country was asked to decide on whether to stay in the EU or leave. We all know the outcome of the referendum, yet we are still unsure as to what that means, for us and our businesses.

There is no getting away from the fact that these are uncertain times. However, what we can have absolute faith in is our wonderful High Street! Independent local businesses run by people who live in the community they serve and share the same passion and love for their town and village as you, our reader.

In this article and on this page we aim to showcase our fabulous high street, thoroughfare and market place and highlight the importance of continuing to support the wonderful tapestry of businesses you will find, right here in the heart of your community.
