We have had a great response from business leaders, retailers and shopkeepers since we launched our Love Your High Street campaign.
The aim is simple, we are encouraging all readers to make a conscious decision to shop locally and spend some time and money with the Eastwood and Kimberley town centre shops, small businesses and independent traders who ensure our community remains a vibrant place to live.
Between now and the end of the year, we will be helping spread the word by supporting the local initiatives and great independent retailers we have on our patches in a series of regular features.
The campaign has sparked plenty of debate – now we want your views.
Our in-depth survey aims to find out what residents and shoppers want, and what they think needs to happen to breathe new life into the heart of the town.
We will collate your views and make sure all councillors, our MPs are fully briefed on what YOU want to see happen – and we will share them with key organisations involved in the debate.
There is no doubt people care about their town centre – and they want to see it improved.
So, please take this opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.
