People across Rickmansworth and further are being invited to take part in recently launched scheme aiming to help local retailers bounce back from the pandemic.
As part of the ‘Save Your High Street Three Rivers’ initiative, people can volunteer to become local champions, able to engage with the community and identify what that community needs and wants to thrive.
It’s all part of a wider programme lead by Three Rivers District Council and financial experts Save Your High Street.
Council leader, Cllr Sarah Nelmes, said: “We are thrilled to continue working with Save The High Street.
“This project aims to support businesses with anything from boosting retail footfall, securing funding, increasing online presence to growing teams, building websites or creating engaging marketing. And we are extremely keen to engage local people to help us understand what support their area would benefit from.”
Alex Schlagman, chief executive of SaveTheHighStreet.org, said: “High streets are the heartbeat of the local community and a key engine for the local economy. We invite anyone who would like to share their views about local high streets to register for ‘Save The High Street Three Rivers’ today.
“If you would like to get involved with initiatives to benefit your local high streets we want to hear from you too.
“The future of high streets across the district depends on how we all act now, and this part of our programme is about giving everyone the opportunity to have the impact they want in the places they care most about.”
