Another great week - informing people about the new webpage and adding new businesses on. We have 23 businesses in total, and we’re growing each week; these things take time. If you think the site is good, useful and informative; shout about it, you can help too by encouraging friends and family to think local first.
Our local Artist John Harrison; also on here, is drafting up some leaflets for me to hand out to let people know all about the page.
A few of us are getting together to finalise our viral advert for the page; something fun that you can watch and maybe join in – watch this space
Since April last year I have been working with Chris’ Fruit and Veg shop and talking to the other shops on the parade about the parking issue that has been causing a nightmare for some time on Fairburn Drive. It is now at a stage where we're waiting for a date when parking space, lines can be painted outside the shops along with a time restriction zone, this will hopefully encourage people to park more sensibly and make better use of the spaces that are there.
I am also encouraging shop owners to park down the side or at the back (shops owners land) so it frees up as much space for the passing public to use these shops efficiently; we're lucky to still have a parade of shops all open.
It has been confirmed; the old Dayspring Church building will become a new Beauty Salon.
Great news coming soon – The Bird in Hand #February
Until next week.............
