Shops and other traders across Three Rivers district can now apply for new specialist support from leading experts to boost the local pandemic recovery.
Three Rivers District Council has teamed up with leading high street retail experts SaveTheHighStreet.org to offer a series of initiatives to help businesses get more customers through their doors.
The programme includes an invitation for local people and organisations who are passionate about their high streets to help as local ‘high street champions’ to engage and identify what support is needed for their local area.
Linda Anderson (pictured), owner of The Kitchen Croxley – a local business which benefited from the pilot in 2021 – said: “The Kitchen Croxley has gone from strength to strength and our plan together is still evolving all the time. It’s great to hear this is now launching across the district. I’m so excited by what is coming for my business and for Croxley Green.”
Cllr Sarah Nelmes, Leader of Three Rivers District Council, said: “Thriving high streets are at the very heart of our economic recovery – no one wants to see businesses struggling, or even closing their doors completely. That is why I am delighted that we are continuing and expanding our work with Save The High Street.”
The free support will provide recommended action plans to help achieve individual business goals, step-by-step guides and one-to-one support from expert advisors and more.
The provision will be personalised for each business across a number of different themes such as increasing footfall, growing online, collaborating locally, making the most of seasonal opportunities and more.
