Many of you will have seen the recent efforts behind Chipping Norton’s entry for the Great British High Street awards and we’ve just been told the fantastic news – from hundreds of entries (including Banbury!) we have been short-listed for Best Market Town!
Judges will be visiting soon but there’s also a public vote element to the competition. So everyone who believes we deserve to be crowned the Best Market Town in Britain should go to chippy2win.com and vote. You can vote every day and the whole family can get involved using their different emails!
And if you’re active on social media, please pass the word around using the hashtag #Chippy2Win.
As well as the prestige of winning, and a major chance to put the town under the PR spotlight for the right reasons (i.e. not the ‘set’), the town will get access to free advice to keep the high street vibrant and get a share of the £80,000 prize fund.
We’ll keep you updated on the competition here.
The Great British High Street initiative is a not for profit initiative backed by the government, set up in the wake of the Mary Portas report. It seeks to promote UK high streets and ensure they are sustainable and vibrant.
