Following the closure of the very popular Les Ward greengrocer’s on the High Street the Parish Council has set up a working party (the Enterprise working party) to address the sustainability of businesses in the Community. Its first focus is on the High Street and it’s recently carried out a simple pilot survey to determine what, if anything, it might do to facilitate a vibrant & varied range of traders continuing to serve the needs of the local community.

There’s a general feeling that it would be appropriate to bring the local traders together and it is proposed to hold a meeting in the second half of September.
The working party has also done some brainstorming around ideas to improve the street scene. These have been on display at the library and on-line (click here for a gallery). It will progress these ideas over the next weeks.
